Funny how they never shelf some of the big stars like Cena and Batista who are obviously using Steriods. Instead they go after Jeff Hardy and losers like this dude for doing stuff like smoking pot.

I reckon he got caught with John Morrison's Mr. Fuji salt, which probably had some coke in it.

I was just going to comment on the same. Not Cena so much, it hasn't been proven that he has taken sterioids. Triple H, Batista, Randy Orton and others have violated this many times, but yet the WWE will keep them on the roster without any penalities becaue they are the "money makers" of the federation at this time. This is what happened to Chris Benoit. He was ontop of his game, a terrific wrestler, people knew he had a history of sterioid taking and he was becoming more and more paranoid, but nobody cared and that is why the tragedy happened...almost one year ago (June 22nd...RIP). Triple H is Vince's son-in-law so he can do whatever he wants...which is a shame. He should not be treated any differently than any other wrestler. Shame on the WWE this is why your ratings are tanking.

What a shame. Jimmy Wang Yang is probably the best and most underrated talent on the Smackdown! roster right now. I would even go as far as to say that he's one of my favorite guys to watch on that boring show. 2008 was supposed to be his year but then he became another victim of terrible booking from bad and racist bookers. Yun needs to go to TNA.

If you watch wrestling you would know that jimmy wang yang really isn't that big of a guy comparatively. It states he was pulled for ...substance abuse... maybe it was another substance. The talent welness program includes drugs such as pot or cocaine. Funny how many folks instantly assume the problem is steroids. What a bunch of hungry dogs you are.

No Jimmy Wang Yang on Smackdown for 1 month = EVEN LOWER RATINGS

Marry the boss' daughter and you will never get caught. Just ask that steroid OVERRATED no-talent freak Paul Levesque aka. Triple H.

......Don't you think a 'roided up Asian guy would be just the slightest bit suspicious?

C'mon...prolly busted for weed or something.

And Hardy was, and still is a big draw, so they will bust big names. Orton was busted not too long ago also.

For the record; WWE hasnt said weather or not it was steroids, it was probably Pain killers, Jimmy Yang does seem like the type of athlete to use steroids, His morals seem higher than that.

Woof    

Numebr 2, Why would they need a new plan if the current one is working? The testing is obviously catching those abusing. That's sort of the point. Dumbass. Go advertise your stupid site somewhere else.

buh-bye weiner party!    

It would be nice if TMZ would put a full story with the pics once in a while instead of just alluding to something and causing everyone to speculate.

Sucks for Jimmy. He really is one of the most talented wrestlers. The "talent wellness policy" is so broad that he could have been busted for anything, steroids or drugs (legal or illegal). My bets on painkillers. It's a good thing TNA doesn't have these tests. You'd find an entire pharmacy in Kurt Angles body. Just cuz of the Benoit thing the attention is on WWE. Pro wrestling can be a rough life with many demons, injuries, pain; and less pay. This doesn't mean Jimmy is a bad guy, just this weeks example to keep the focus off the top stars.
