WWE On Why Brock Lesnar Will Not Be Punished For UFC Wellness Policy Violation

A WWE spokesperson has confirmed to TMZ that WWE will not discipline Brock Lesnar whatsoever for failing two different drug tests prior to his UFC 200 bout against Mark Hunt.

According to TMZ, the spokesperson stated that "only full-time WWE performers are subject to the organization's wellness policy, which prohibits PEDs ... but since Brock isn't a full-time performer, he's essentially exempt."

Lesnar tested positive for Clomiphene in both failures, which is an estrogen blocker meant to increase testosterone.

According to the spokesperson, WWE is not a regulated athletic competition, and that because Brock does not work a full time schedule he is exempt from these rules. A source noted to TMZ that the rules are only in place to keep full-time performers healthy.

Lesnar will return to the ring to face Randy Orton at WWE SummerSlam on August 21st, and will also make his first appearance since WrestleMania 31 on next week's episode of RAW.
