100th ECW Tomorrow, Talent Pissed At New Policy, Suspension, More
By Ryan Clark | May 05, 2008
Several WWE Superstars are said to be unhappy about the new drug testing procedure that I reported on this morning. WWE got wind of people cheating tests by using a whizzinator (an easy to conceal urinating device with a realistic prosthetic p---s). Therefore all collectors were fired for not monitoring more closely.
At last week's TVs all Superstars were tested in front of a new crew of monitors and the rule is you have to be nude "from your ankles to your nipples" and be watched when you give a urine sample.
Afa Anoa'I Jr. was suspended for trying to cheat a drug test a few weeks ago.
WWE issued the following press release this afternoon: WWE®'s ECW® To Air 100th Episode This Tuesday on SCI FI STAMFORD, Conn., May 5, 2008 – World Wrestling Entertainment® and the SCI FI Channel announced today that the 100th episode of "ECW: Extreme Championship Wrestling®" will air this Tuesday, May 6, at 10 p.m./9C, live on SCI FI.
