See: WWE star reveals doctor's note as suspension row continues

Football News

Back at the start of April, the WWE handed out suspensions to main roster stars Adam Rose and Konnor after ruling the duo had violated the organisation's Wellness Policy after failing respective drugs tests.

While Konnor has kept quiet following the WWE's decision, Rose has been vocal in contesting his innocence.

A couple of weeks ago, he issued a statement denying any wrongdoing and today he has revealed a doctors note he hopes will clear his name and restore his reputation.

Having, in his earlier official statement, claimed that the drugs he was found guilty of taking were actually prescribed medication, Rose has seemingly produced evidence showing that he had, in fact, been prescribed Adderall to treat ADHD.

Below is the note uploaded to by Rose to his official Twitter account:

For those struggling to decipher the handwriting, it reads:

"To whom it may concern,

"I am writing this letter on the behalf of Adam Rose (Ray Leppan - D.O.B. 7/20/79), whom I have treated since 4/30/15.

"He has basic signs and symptoms of ADHD, determined through a very thorough physical taken on 4/30/15.

"He takes Adderall XR, which is an FDR-approved treatment for ADHD, and we have followed all standard of care protocols during his treatment, which has gone very well.

"He takes his medication as prescribed, and he is compliant with my treatment recommendations."

Rose also revealed, in a response to fan's question on Twitter, that the WWE had known about this prescribed medication for over one year - making their decision to suspend him last month somewhat confusing.

Fighting to clear his name

Having said that, with the WWE not having commented on the wrestler's status beyond confirming his official suspension, we are currently only receiving information on the decision from one side.

That isn't to say Rose hasn't been unfairly treated, just that the WWE, at this stage, haven't offered their own explanation for suspending him.

If it truly is simply down to prescribed medication (that they supposedly knew about) turning up on a drugs test, a lot of WWE fans will be behind Rose as he attempts to clear his name.

Having already struggled in recent times to gain any real traction on the main roster, the suspension and his very public denial of any wrongdoing do, though, have the potential to do serious damage to his chances of rising up the WWE card.

It remains to be seen if Rose's latest actions force the WWE to respond, but you can't blame the 36-year-old for fighting his cause as he continues to serve the 60-day suspension.
