The WWE hasn't had the greatest of reputations when it comes to drug use.
Throughout the 80's and 90's, the use of steroids and recreational drugs was alarmingly high. Ever since the sad passing of Eddie Guerrero, and the steroids scandal that indicted several top WWE superstars in the mid-2000's - most notably, Randy Orton - the sports entertainment giants decided to clean up their act.
In came the new talent wellness policy and with it saw the introduction of a new testing system, which, according to The Miz, is more stringent than any major sports league in the world.

Miz spoke to the “Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss” show and spoke more about the testing that superstars undergo than has really been revealed before.
“We are tested more than an NFL [player], Major League Baseball player, or in the NBA. I mean, we are tested nonstop, all day, every day," Miz started off as saying.
He event went as far as to say that star's aren't allowed to take Sudafed - a medication for sinus congestion.
"We’re not allowed to have Sudafed. [If] you have a Sudafed, you’re out 30 days, so it’s legit."
Basically, The Miz made sure to put over just how much the stars of today are tested - even though there are still some on the roster who's bodies don't look 100% natural. Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez have remarked in the past year that some WWE bodies still look like they’ve had more than just weights and protein.
"The stuff you maybe got away with back in the day, you don’t get away with now. And kudos to WWE because they took an interest in our health," Miz concluded. "We get tested. Our hearts get tested. We get tested every six months. We get blood tested, we get our heart monitored, and it’s great.”
