The WWE has clamped down on substance use and abuse in the company over the past decade or so. 

Following a period of frequent steroid and drug use that surrounded the WWE, which has seen many former superstars pass away tragically early, the WWE cracked down with a Wellness Policy that has been implemented and adhered to.

One WWE sports entertainer failed that wellness policy today, with Hornswoggle falling foul of the tests.

WWE has announced in a statement on their website that Hornswoggle has been suspended for 30 days, effective immediately, for his first violation of the company's Talent Wellness Program.

WWE's statement reads, "In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE has suspended Dylan Postl (Hornswoggle) for 30 days, effective immediately, for his first violation of the company's policy."

Hornswoggle hasn't been seen on television in months and didn't have any story line plans in the works, so it's not like this is going to change much of what fans will see.

Swoggle recovered from a surgery he had earlier this year, but despite that he's only been used on an infrequent basis for some time though he's been with the company on a full time basis dating back to 2006. He starred in Leprechaun: Origins just last year.

This is the WWE's first Wellness Policy violation since Ricardo Rodriguez back in 2013.
