Primo Colon addressed his 30-day suspension for violating the WWE Wellness Policy in a new interview with Primerahora.com, explaining he didn’t test positive for anything but simply didn’t take a test when requested.
“I was not on the road (on tour with the company), I was not scheduled for any event in the near future. I am in Puerto Rico when they call me suddenly, not to use me, but to travel for a doping test. I was ready to do it, but I told them that I was in Puerto Rico and that I was willing to go to a place (laboratory) that they chose to test me without any problem, without any discomfort. I was not going to pay for a trip to just get tested for doping.”
“There I didn’t hear anything from the company about it and I thought they were going to call me when they found a place to do the test. Almost two months pass and I get the letter that I am suspended, according to them, because I refused to take the test. And that is not correct. They took it as I was out of the country, but I was available.”
“I don’t want them to say that I failed to test positive because that is totally false and incorrect. They usually do their doping test at events, someone appears to collect the urine of fighters, employees, referees … to do their evaluation once a month. I did not [test] anything positive. I was in Puerto Rico. I have to clarify it because my reputation is worth more than any check.”
As reported here on WrestlePages.com, Colon along with Robert Roode were hit with 30 day bans for violating the WWE Wellness Policy.
Primo is likely to appeal his suspension.
