The WWE suspended superstars Adam Rose and Konnor for 60 days on April 16 for their second violation of the company’s Wellness Policy. However, there are WWE rumors going around suggesting that both superstars did not test positive for any illegal substance.
As mentioned in a previous report, Rose has responded with a statement regarding his suspension. The Social Outcast member insisted that he never did anything wrong and all of his medications were prescribed by his own doctor in accordance with WWE’s Wellness Policy protocol.
“I can say right now I did not do anything knowingly wrong and was taking prescribed medication that my Dr and I followed all the correct protocol on. My actual response and Doctors response will be coming soon. So before you judge, know the facts,” Rose said in a statement on his Twitter.
“My family and I are still collecting ourselves from this blow. I have zero anger or animosity against the WWE. But feel the administrators over the WWE Wellness policy were just simply not right in taking this action,” he added.

According to PWInsider (h/t Wrestling Inc.), the WWE was caught off guard by Rose’s statements and it shocked many people backstage. However, note that, despite his response, Rose reportedly earned a lot of respect from his co-workers.
The report also noted that Konnor also did not test positive for any illegal substance causing some rumors to swirl around regarding the suspensions. Besides Rose and Konnor, the WWE has only suspended two other superstars for violating the Wellness Policy in the last four years, Ricardo Rodriguez in 2013 and Hornswoggle in 2015.
