WWE’s Wellness Policy test is very strict and if someone is unable to take the test then they fail. It seems that is what happened with Andrade.
Hugo Savinovich has a good idea of what goes on in the WWE locker room, even though he no longer works in the company. He was the first to report regarding WWE’s problems returning from Saudi Arabia.
He recently made a post on Facebook, where he revealed that Andrade failing the WWE Wellness Policy was not due to him being tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
“The situation with Andrade bothers me a lot because I have been one of those people supporting him 100 percent – his reputation, his professionalism and his family lineage. Now, while studying this case, I’ve found out some things. Wrestlers in the company have much more information on this and how the drug testing works.”
He noted that Andrade’s situation is similar to Primo Colon’s failure of the Wellness Policy, who failed to take the test as he was in Puerto Rico.
Hugo explained that the general idea in the locker room is that Andrade is innocent.
“Wrestlers in WWE have commented about this situation in the locker room, a world where you’ll hear all sorts of things. Andrade, I dare say it publicly, I understand is innocent.”
Andrade was apparently not given a chance to explain himself before the suspension was announced.
