WWE removes wellness strike from Randy Orton’s record

Football News

Wellness violations are the most talked-about topic in the world of WWE and UFC today, with Brock Lesnar failing two drugs tests before his UFC 200 win over Mark Hunt, while the WWE suspended Roman Reigns for 30 days also.

The WWE didn’t give a convincing explanation when they revealed that Lesnar wouldn’t be penalised for the anti-doping violation due to his status as a part-time competitor.


However, there’s some good news for Randy Orton, who recently returned to the company after rehabilitating a shoulder injury – as it’s being reported that one of his wellness violations has been erased from his record.

The WWE imposes a ‘three strikes, and you’re out’ policy, which has seen many stars leave the company over the years because of said offences.

PWMania.com are reporting that while The Viper was away from the ring, he voluntarily spent time in a drug rehab centre, and under the policy, it states that by taking this action, one strike must be removed from a record.


Orton’s suspensions came in August 2006 and May 2012, but since then Vince McMahon is said to be very happy with Orton’s new focused and motivated attitude, which as fans know, hasn’t been the case in the past.

While rehabilitating his shoulder injury, Orton also got married, and he and his wife are now expecting a child. It’s claimed that Vince couldn’t be happier with Orton’s attitude and performances since the return as he heads into SummerSlam to tackle Brock Lesnar.

And if rumours are to be believed, Orton may even defeat The Beast Incarnate later this month.
