Never heard of Mexicans and steriods in the same sentence. So... I'm guessing it's either one of the three... Corona, Cocaine, or Meth.

Rey has a lot of injuries and I am sure he is taking medication to get through the pain and keep on wrestling. I think it's time for him to hang up his wrestling boots. He has talked of retirement for a long time and if he is doing drugs (or steroids) to be able to perform, the safest and best thing is for him to step away while he's still relatively healthy and ALIVE. I would hate to see another one go down to drugs.

"Talent Wellness Program"? Isn't that a bit of an oxymoron from any angle? I mean, one look at that face and... come on!

I love how the WWE spins this: "Talent Wellness Program." At least other organizations call it what it is.

The Talent Wellness Program is not just drug testing. The program has literally saved lives. They found one wrestler with a heart murmur that he never even knew about, and was able to be treated. Others have found illnesses or injuries that the performer didn't know about.

Odds are, its a banned substance. But what, they'll never say. Could be a certain type of anti-biotic that they banned from use. Could be almost anything.

Steroids are not all bad. Most are used to promote healing. Only a few are the bad ones.
