Brock Lesnar not being suspended by the WWE for failing twice in his UFC drug test is still the talk of the locker room. According to the latest WWE rumors, some wrestlers think that the company is being inconsistent with their enforcement of the Wellness Policy.
Lesnar, who will be facing Randy Orton at SummerSlam this Sunday, was not suspended by the WWE due to being a part-time wrestler. The Beast have only wrestled 19 times in the past three years compared to other superstars that put their bodies on the line 200 times per year, per TMZ Sports.
According to Daily Wrestling News, WWE not punishing Lesnar and allowing him to work at SummerSlam did not get great reactions from the locker room. Some stars believe that he should have been punished just like Roman Reigns.
Reigns was suspended for 30 days following his first violation of the WWE Wellness Policy after failing a drug test for Adderall. He apologized to the locker room and people backstage wanted Brock Lesnar to do the same thing.
However, the WWE has been very firm about the decision and will not punish Lesnar. The 39-year-old is still one of the top draws of the company so suspending him would have caused SummerSlam to have lower numbers and little media exposure.
Additionally, Brock Lesnar is the cover of the upcoming WWE 2K17 video game. He is rumored to have a confrontation with Bill Goldberg this Sunday to set up a rematch of their WrestleMania 20 disaster. It should be noted that these were just WWE rumors and nothing have been confirmed.
Lesnar will battle Randy Orton at SummerSlam this Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Based on previous reports, the WWE has not decided the winner but all signs point to Lesnar coming out on top.
