I read through the poiler already. I am just happy that we finally will not see Batista in the title picture at Unforgiven, he has been given too many chances. It is about the time for Taker to come back and destroy Mark Henry and Khali.

- Robert Huffman (King Booker)

Following WWE's announcement today that they have suspended 10 wrestlers for violating their Wellness Policy, The New York Daily News has put up an article revealing 11 WWE wrestlers who have been identified as customers of Signature Pharmacy in Orlando. Signature Pharmacy was raided by authorities in February for distributing steroids and other drugs to people who had not been examined by doctors.

While WWE has suspended 10 wrestlers for violating the Wellness Policy, they have not announced the specific reason. It is assumed that the 10 wrestlers were suspended due to the discovery of them being customers of Signature Pharmacy, but that is not confirmed. The 11 wrestlers below may include the 10 suspended, but there is no way of knowing that for sure until WWE confirms it or until a few weeks go by and it becomes evident which wrestlers are not appearing on TV.

Damn it people... READ THE ARTICLE!!!

The 11 wrestlers below may include the 10 suspended, but there is no way of knowing that for sure until WWE confirms it or until a few weeks go by and it becomes evident which wrestlers are not appearing on TV.

Randy Orton
- Adam Copeland (Edge)
- Charlie Haas
- Robert Huffman (King Booker)
- Shane Helms
- Mike Bucci (Simon Dean)
- Anthony Carelli (Santino Marella)
- John Hennigan (John Morrison)
- Darren Matthews (William Regal)
- Ken Anderson (Kennedy)
- Chavo Guerrero

It says it may include the 10 men suspended, its not definitive that these are the suspended wrestlers. And Umaga and Funaki have also been linked to this whole fiasco.

That is pretty much the whole ME level of Raw in that list, apart from Cena. It would be interesting to see what they did if they had suspended all of those.
It could be interesting, you'd probably see people in the mid-card level being promoted, perhaps deservingly.

I say take it with a grain of salt. Two of those names are out with an injury (Edge and Helms) and could be getting medicine that they need for ligit reasons. Another name on there isn't even an active wrestler as far as I know (Dean/Nova.)

It will be interesting if they take the hard road and suspend all those names though. If it is true this would be a repeat offense for Masters.

If all those wrestlers are suspended, the majority of RAW ME superstars will be gone, man! I now start to doublt if Cena will defend his title at Unforgiven, the PPV is too small to throw him and HHH together.

On the BBC Radio 1 news about the whole steroids situation, they said that Batista was one of the individuals suspended. Whether that's true or not, we'll have to wait and see.

Sorry for the double post, but i had to post this

Source: PWInsider.com

The Daily News has added Eddie Fatu (Umaga) and Shoichi Funaki to their list of WWE wrestlers that were clients of Signature Pharmacy.

Im just confirming his suspension. SO what happens now to Umaga's belt?

I really wonder what someone like Funaki would be doing at that pharmacy. I can understand the reasoning behind top superstars wanting to improve their chances of success, but Funaki won't ever be anything other than a jobber, and a joke wrestler.

Probably a quick switch to Jeff Hardy in the next broadcast.

No, you really aren't, you're confirming his involvement in this scandal, but you are NOT confirming his suspension.

People are jumping to conclusions here that the guys listed here are the ten what got suspended, I'm not saying they aren't, I'm not saying they are. We'll only really know for sure as TV airs and we start seeing guys that were prominently featured getting de-pushed.

I fully expect Kennedy to lose his planned new spot, and I expect CM Punk to get the ECW Title at Saturday's tapings because Morrison will also be punished. Sadly, it's going to be a situation where some deserving guys will get a shot because the guys the company believed in decided to screw up, but it also must be said that when you work for a company where guys like Bobby Lashley get huge pushes with limited skill sets, and Chris Masters gets a million chances seemingly because he has huge muscles, well...you'll probably do whatever you have to get an edge.

You can't really knock opportunities like that, considering that Stone Cold was borne out of a similar situation.

I'm not knocking guys getting oppurtonities, it just pisses me off that this company refuses to take chances on young, unproven guys, or guys getting good reactions that they just don't like much, because it dosen't fit their vision or their political mindset. If things aren't going well, and you've got a guy people care about, that looks like isn't going to flame out on you, why not give him a try? Why aren't they establishing more undercard guys they could conceivably use in main event situations?

Opportunity is always a great thing, but it's a shame it only comes in this company when the "stars" (some of them having walked in with warning lights flashing but they still got the push) fuck up.

Oh, I didn't mean you were knocking opportunities like that, I just meant any wrestler in that kind of situation.
It's pretty much the only chance some wrestlers will get at main event level, and even though it's sad, it's the way it is. And it's probably the way it's going to be, considering how little the WWE seems willing to change in order to improve their product.

SD was pretty good last night. We saw new yet unlikely tag champs, and a new number 1 contender for the heavyweight tit;e. It was great to see Rey in action again.

I could have done without the McMahon segment, though his interaction with Batista was great.

If those are the suspended individuals, the WWE is just going to have to bump up the undecard for a month. If anything, this might make WWE start using some of the more talented individuals like Shelton more effectivly. This could be a blessing in disguise. Lou Gherig got his break when Wally Pip was hurt and couldn't play first base. He was scheduled to play for one day, but played the position for the next twelve years, and had one of the greatest careers in MLB history. This could easily happen with the WWE, they just need someone with lots of fan support.

That comes as something of a surpries, especially since his name was not on the list. But oh well, they really weren't doing anything with him, and his character had been played out. This will give him a chance to re-invent himself with a new personna and everything.

So Punk beat Morrison at the ECW tapings tonight for the title. Is it just me, or is that belt been forfeited gone to a completly siffrent person then planned due to unfortunate events a lot.

Jeff Hardy is facing Umaga on Monday for the IC title, and if Umaga is getting suspended then we'll have another new champ. That win will give Jeff quite a bit of creditability.
