The Pro Wrestling Torch is reporting that there was another round of WWE drug testing at the Vengeance PPV last night in Charlotte. The tests also applied to ECW stars now under contract with the company.

The early word is that Vince McMahon doesn’t want to invest TV time into ECW stars that haven’t proved to the company that they are clean and ready for a big push.
