Sports Illustrated has published a list of fourteen WWE Signature Pharmacy clients on their official website, including what drugs each wrestler had purchased and when. A list of most of the suspended wrestlers can now be compiled if you want to presume that those suspended were clients after the WWE Wellness Policy was instituted. The Wellness policy prohibits drug prescriptions over the internet and getting drugs through the Orlando based Signature Pharmacy drug network would be a clear violation of the policy. With the exception of the late Eddie Guerrero, all of the wrestlers listed have gotten drugs from Signature Pharmacy since February 2006 — which is when the WWE Wellness Policy was implemented.
Of the fourteen wrestlers listed, ten are still contracted to WWE. Three are deceased in Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit and Brian Adams. Another listed wrestler was recently let go in Sylvain Grenier, so he obviously wouldn’t be subject to a suspension. So that leaves you with ten WWE contracted performers listed in the article who have purchased drugs over the internet since the institution of the Wellness policy in February 2006 — which is a clear violation of the WWE Wellness Policy. WWE made the announcement earlier today that ten wrestlers were suspended for violating the WWE Wellness Policy, but refused to cite specific names. It looks like the ten contracted WWE wrestlers listed below are the individuals who were suspended.
Without further ado, here is a complete report of Sports Illustrated’s findings:
– Benoit, who died June 24, 2007, received nandrolone and anastrozole in February 2006. (Anastrozole is used by athletes to counter side effects of steroid use, such as water retention and breast enlargement.)
– Two weeks prior to Eddie Guerrero’s death on Nov. 13, 2005, he was sent nandrolone, testosterone, and anastrozole. Guerrero died in a Minneapolis hotel room due to what a coroner later ruled as heart disease, complicated by an enlarged heart resulting from a history of anabolic steroid use.
– Chavo Guerrero, who found his uncle Eddie dead in the Minneapolis hotel room, received, among other drugs, somatropin (HGH), nandrolone and anastrozole between April 2005 and May 2006.
– Between November 2003 and February 2007, Shane Helms, a/k/a The Hurricane, received, among other drugs, testosterone, genotropin (HGH) and nandrolone. (As previously reported by SI, he allegedly received HGH from an Arizona doctor in 2005.)
– Starting in September 2004 through February 2007, Randy Orton received somatropin, nandrolone, stanozolol.
– John Hennigan, a/k/a Johnny Nitro, a.k.a. Johnny Morrison, is the current WWE Extreme Championship Wrestling’s heavyweight champion. Between June 2006 and February 2007 he was prescribed somatropin, anastrozole, testosterone, stanozolol and chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone produced naturally during pregnancy. (HCG is taken by anabolic steroid users to stimulate the production of testosterone, which is suppressed as a result of steroid use.)
– Ken Anderson, a/k/a Mr. Kennedy, lost to Eddie Guerrero in Guerrero’s final match on Nov. 11, 2005. Kennedy received shipments of anastrozole, somatropin and testosterone between October 2006 and February 2007.
– Shoichi Funaki received somatropin in March 2006.
– Brian Adams, a/k/a Crush, who retired from the pro circuit in 2001, was found dead of unknown causes on Aug. 13. He received nandrolone, testosterone and Somatropin or HGH in December 2006.
– Charles Haas was prescribed anastrozole, somatropin, stanozolol, nandrolone and chorionic gonadotropin between August 2006 and January 2007.
– Edward Fatu received somatropin between July and December 2006.
– Between November 2004 and November 2006, Darren Matthews received stanozolol, somatropin, genotropin, and anastrozole.
– Adam Copeland, a/k/a Edge, received somatropin, genotropin (both HGH), and stanozolol between September 2004 and February 2007.
– Sylvain Grenier received somatropin, nandrolone, genotropin and stanozolol, starting in February 2005 through July 2006.
Following up on Mr. Kennedy, he claimed in a recent interview that he stopped doing drugs cold turkey as soon as the WWE Wellness Policy was instituted in February 2006. Between October 2006 and February 2007, Kennedy received Anastrozole (which is not a steroid, but used to counter affects of steroids such as development of female breast tissue), Somatropin (a Growth Hormone) and testosterone, which is an anabolic steroid.
