    Default Ricardo Rodriguez Suspended

    WWE announced on their website that Ricardo Rodriguez has been suspended for his first violation of the company’s policy.

    “STAMFORD, Conn. – In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE has suspended Jesús Rodríguez (Ricardo Rodriguez) for 30 days effective immediately for his first violation of the company’s policy.”

    What the fuck, Ricardo?

    Oh well. First strike, 30 days, and they wrote him off TV (which sounds fishy, and likely means management is gaming the Wellness Program again), and he's a non-wrestling talent whose absence can give motivation to Bert of the River. Not gonna lose any sleep over it.

    Or it means they suspected something last week and just didn't have the final test results until now.

    Kinda random if you ask me, but he broke the policy. He deserves the punishment.

    Ricardo isn't Randy Orton, so he better not do it again.

    What the hell does it matter? He's not an active wrestler. Unless he does something truly illegal then I don't see an issue here.

    ( ಠ_ಠ) - 97% of PW suddenly think Michael Cole is awesome. If you're part of the 3% that still thinks he is an annoying tool, copy & paste this into your sig.

    That is going to hurt Alberto a lot. Ricardo's charisma carries Alberto when he isn't in the ring.

    Sets a bad pattern for others if he was not suspended and docked without pay.

    Rosa is prowling back......she can cover up for ADR and help make his matches tolerable for me.

    Of course you'd only enjoy watching a guy who never has a bad match if he has Rosa with him.

    I am hoping this is a sign that they did some sort of mass test and Ryback is in trouble, hence last nights booking, because at least that would make it slightly less awful.

    I would mark out if Ryback got suspended. I can't stand him.

    I love how people on this forum wish for talents to derail their career and miss out on a month or more of pay, just because they don't enjoy that particular talent's work. Stay classy, fellas!

    Possible. But unless it was a situation where they gave him time to present a valid prescription, and had the beatdown last week to cover their asses in the event he couldn't produce one, I don't think WWE has ever really worked to write someone off prior to receiving the final test results. However, it would not be the first time WWE has delayed a suspension for storyline reasons.

    Ryback rules as a face.....but is god awful as a heel. So forced and lifeless.

    I hope Miz winning over him was more of a boost for Miz than a blemish on Ryback. Still can't get over not one face being in the WHW MITB match.

    I can't stand him either way.

    Can they get suspended for weed or is that still just a fine?

    Also, since they're set on making Alberto a heel again, this may be the best thing for ADR. Ricardo, however, is on his way to becoming a random background character, methinsk.

    I actually feel the opposite. I think as a babyface he was generic and scripted whereas a heel, I see a little more personality coming out of him. You hear stories all the time about wrestlers who say it's eaiser working heel than it is baby because you get to cut loose more, so to speak. I think he has a bright future down the road if continues to be himself.

    As far as Ricardo goes, well shucks. You snort a rail before the show get caught, shit happens. I'm sure he'll be fine tho, or fined.... :/

    Yeah, it's going to look weird if he's not with Alberto.

    Some of the most accurate words i've ever read on PW. It truly is worrying how some people can think like this, you know who you are as well.

    That sucks. I like the guy and I like his work with ADR but also I think it's shitty he fucked up too. I think he's a good hand and has lots of potential as a manager and to get nailed while his counterpart is on top of the WHT scene is terrible timing. Hope he comes back smarter.

    And there is nothing anywhere that says you get an IMMEDIATE suspension for fucking up a wellness policy test. It's all self regulated by WWE so they get to call the shots on it.

    It really chaps my ass that Swagger can fuck up so royally that his mug shot is plastered all over the internet due to a DUI and weed possession and yet he still performs at Mania and never gets publicly suspended or anything while Ricardo gets thrown under the bus supposedly due to fat burners?!!?!?!?

    Ricardo Rodriguez, who has been suspended for 30 days for violating WWE's Wellness Policy, made the following tweets tonight:
    "Silly Internet and the ignorance it bestows. La conciencia de la mente libre nos trae paz. #LiberateYourMind"

    "I have 30 days to go back to my charities that I have been with years. Help the homeless the less fortunate! And more importantly luv urself"

    "The moment you love yourself you will begin to love the world #acceptance"

    "To the ones hating on me or the ones supporting me.. I love you all. Namaste! im happy to do my charities"

    Unless you are in a PPV match, in that case it can wait no matter the offense, right?

    Anyway, it dissappoints me to see this happen, I love Ricardo, but rules are rules, to most people at least....
    That's all, folks.

    I have never been a fan of Ricardo so this is pretty good news.
