WWE has a very strict wellness policy, which is many were surprised to hear Triple H’s nutritionist, Dave Palumbo, claim during an appearance the Matt Riviera show that some talents in WWE are allowed to, and do use HGH.
During his appearance on the show he said the following:
“They’re [WWE Talents] allowed to take hormone replacement. They can go to an HRT place and get testosterone replacement, 100 mg a week, whatever they prescribe nowadays. Those are acceptable. A lot of the wrestlers do it. It’s not for me to say who’s using what, but they’re very minimal doses.”
WWE issued the following statement to PWInsider regarding the claims:
“WWE’s comprehensive Talent Wellness Policy, which is administered by an independent, third-party, clearly states hGH and hCG are among a long list of banned substances, however, due to certain medical conditions, there are a variety of therapeutic exemptions that account for approximately 7% of our contracted talent.”
