So is there still a drug problem in WWE? Potentially. The issue is that WWE has a Wellness Policy they tout as one of the best in the business. Yet they still do have several guys who are big. They very well could have gotten bigger on hard work like John Cena, who has not changed much body wise in his 12 years with the company. If he used in that time, we would have noticed a change. However, you have some like a Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero who we know used because they started out small and just got bigger and bigger. It comes down to WWE still having a potential drug problem even in 2014, and it is obviously something they need to take care of.
