WWE suspend two more wrestlers for substance abuse

Chris Masters and DH Smith have been suspended by the WWE for substance abuse policy violation.

WWE suspend two more wrestlers for substance abuse And yet two more WWE wrestlers were suspended on Friday for violating the substance abuse policy. Chris Masters (Mordetzky) received a 60-day suspension, as this was his second violation. It was first violation for Harry "D.H." Smith (picture left), nephew of Bret "Hitman" Hart, and he is suspended for only 30 days. "WWE is very serious about eradicating the use of steroids and the abuse of prescription drugs, and we hope by making the names of our performers public it that will be a further deterrent to the other performers," said WWE spokesman Gary Davis.

 Although this is the first time WWE made the names of the suspended wrestlers public, the company refused to name the drugs the two tested positive for. The suspension periods come from the new drug violation policy, which WWE enacted last year. First timers get 30 days ban, second time violators get 60 days and third time - you're fired. This is the second time in three months WWE suspends wrestlers for violation of their substance abuse policy. In August 10 wrestlers were suspended based on information from the Albany County New York District Attorney's Office, which was investigating illegal steroid sales.
