WWE Superstar Roman Reigns Issues Statement On Steroid Allegations

An Accused Steroid Dealer Claims Roman Reigns Was A Customer, Along With Mark Wahlberg

I don't think that anything will come of this, as the investigation occurred over a year ago.

Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and WWE superstar Roman Reigns have been accused of purchasing steroids from unlawful anabolic steroid distributor Wellness Fitness and Nutrition (WFN). An arrested steroids dealer, Richard Rodriguez, named the three celebrities during a phone interview with filmmaker Jon Bravo from the Brooklyn Detention Center in NY. According to the Miami Herald, he is accused of being part of a distribution ring that imported materials from China that would be manufactured into illegal steroids in Arizona that would then be distributed in Miami, Florida.

The 32-year-old has previously violated a WWE Wellness Policy in June 2016 after he tested positive for Adderall, which is a banned substance across all major sporting leagues.

The claims by Richard Rodriguez have been picked up by several mainstream media outlets. As we noted earlier, Rodriguez claimed in a documentary that Roman Reigns was one of his clients.

Roman Reigns may have taken a surprise spear. Lesner, who already enjoyed high status within the WWE, was suspended for one year by the UFC but received no punishment from the WWE.

If you missed it, a Miami business owner has been implicated in a steroid ring and claimed to have supplied steroids to Reigns, among others. He was recently interviewed by YouTube filmmaker John Bravo and in the interview, he named some famous celebrities who were his customers including actor Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and Roman Reigns.

This isn't the first time WWE stars have been named in an alleged steroid scandal.
