Brock Lesnar Won’t Face Punishment From WWE For Failed UFC Drug Tests


The UFC has yet to punish Brock Lesnar for failing two drug tests, much to the chagrin of UFC 200 opponent Mark Hunt.

And on Tuesday, TMZ learned that the WWE isn’t putting the hammer down on Lesnar at all.

The reason? Lesnar isn’t a full-time performer for the WWE.

“WWE?s talent wellness program does not apply to part-time performers such as Brock Lesnar,” a WWE spokesperson told TMZ. An official also stated that the WWE is a “show business” and that its wellness program was intended to keep full-time performers healthy.

Lesnar has appeared sparingly in the WWE, with just 19 matches dating back to 2014, a far cry from the 200 or so matches a full-time WWE wrestler has in an average year.

The WWE promoted Lesnar’s return for the August 1 “Monday Night RAW,” and he’s slated to fight Randy Orton at SummerSlam in Brooklyn on August 21.
