It’s never a good thing when a WWE Superstar gets suspended, but that’s exactly what happened last month when WWE announced that Robert Roode and Primo Colon had both been suspended for violating the wellness policy.
The suspensions were for 30 days, and they were officially announced on December 10th which means both Superstars are eligible to return.
Primo Colon hasn’t been used on television in some time, but it will be interesting to see if Robert Roode returns to SmackDown tonight now that his suspension has been lifted.
There’s currently no word on whether or not WWE has plans for Roode to be used on TV tonight.
Primo recently noted that he plans to appeal his suspension, and he explained that he did not fail a drug test, as he was n
“I wasn’t on the road with WWE, I wasn’t scheduled for any event in the near future,” Primo said during an interview. “I was in Puerto Rico when they suddenly called me, not to use me, but to get me to travel and go through a drug test. I was ready to do it, but I told them that I was in Puerto Rico and was willing to go to a lab [here in Puerto Rico] of their choosing to do the drug test without problems. I just wasn’t going to pay for a trip that was simply going to be a drug test.”
“From then on, I didn’t hear a response on the matter and I thought they would call me when they found a place for me to go do the test. Two months passed and I get a letter saying that I am suspended, according to them, because I denied wanting to do a drug test. And that’s just not right. They took it as I was out of the country, but not available.”
