Brock Lesnar stunned the world when it was announced that the former UFC and WWE Champion had failed a drug test.
The Beast Incarnate then managed to fail another test, his in competition one, on top of that, which was revealed earlier this week.
For the first time in the wake of the saga, someone from the WWE has actually spoken publicly about Lesnar's failed tests. That man was John Cena, who breached the subject in a recent interview.

Cena appeared on ESPN earlier this week. During that interview with former WWE employee Jonathan Coachman, he was asked about Lesnar’s recent positive tests before and after his fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200.
“Well, there was certainly a lot of hype. I was actually on SportsCenter hyping that fight myself," Cena stated. "My thoughts were in Brock Lesnar’s corner, as he was put as the underdog in that fight, and he ended up doing well."
"Anytime something like that comes out, it certainly affects your perception of the event."
"There’s no way that people aren’t going to perceive Brock Lesnar differently, and when something like this happens, you set yourself a long, hard road ahead of you, and Brock’s got a long, hard road ahead of him.”
Cena is right, people are definitely going to look at Lesnar differently after this. It started on the WWE Draft on SmackDown Live this past Tuesday, when for the first time in years, Lesnar was booed by sections of the audience - clearly reacting to his positive tests.
