Under a WWE wellness policy instituted last year that requires tests for steroids and other drugs, a wrestler faces a 30-day suspension without pay for a first violation, a 60-day suspension for a second violation and firing for a third violation. Performers are tested at least four times per year.
"We are very actively working to eradicate the use of steroids and performance enhancing drugs in the WWE," WWE spokesman Gary Davis said. "Today's action is part of that effort."
The WWE wouldn't comment on which wrestlers were suspended, but we're sure it won't be hard to figure it out if you are a die-hard watcher of "Monday Night Raw", or one of the other many television shows and PPV events that the WWE floods into mainstream living rooms every month.
According to pwtorch.com, here is the list of suspended wrestlers. (Yes I am aware this is 11 and not 10):
Adam Copeland (aka Edge )
Robert Huffman (aka King Booker, aka Booker T )
Shane Helms (aka The Hurricane )
Mike Bucci (aka Hollywood Nova )
Anthony Carelli (aka Santino Marella )
John Hennigan (aka John Morrison, aka Johnny Nitro )
Darren Matthews (aka William Regal)
Ken Anderson (Ken Kennedy, aka Mr. Kennedy)
Chavo Guerrero Jr. (Nephew of Eddie Guerrero)
