STAMFORD, Conn. – In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE has suspended Randy Orton for 60 days effective today for his second violation of the company's policy.

Wow down goes another guy in a suspension, this means more opportunity to the young lions for sure!

I guess you traded him to me just in time Hoho.lol.

This sucks, i was looking forward to an Orton vs Ziggler feud. Hopefully it helps someone else on the roster out though WWE is really lacking faces right now....and by someone i hope that someone isn't Sin Cara...

This is only Ortons 2nd strikle? I feel like he's already had a bunch of strikes already.

Anyone else feel like he did whatever thing he did a while back and they are just announcing and enforcing the suspension because he really has nothing going on now and Jericho got suspended? I Just have hard time believing if Jericho didn't get suspended this would have happened.

Orton has been bland since Wrestlemania 21.

I think Orton as a face is fairly generic but I think that is more down to him taking a backseat to other talent e.g. Sheamus, Punk etc. He still puts on some great matches though and it sucks we don't get to see Orton/Ziggler.

This kind of sucks, Orton's a solid player, hopefully someone decent gets the push to slot in his position.

Orton will miss the 100th Raw then, Which is in his hometown St. Louis as well. That's pretty unfortunate.

Orton has been a bit boring for a while now thought, he has done nothing that has interested me since his series with Christian.

I'm sure he's had more but they've buried them. No way they're ever going to fire him. Unfortunate though, you'd think he'd know better.


Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.

Have they announced why they have suspended him?

What happens if he gets a 3rd suspension?  As Prax said, they CAN'T fire him... Fine him?

Cover it up and act like it never happened.

I'm also wondering myself what if someone gets 3 strikes? is it a lifetime ban? or can that wrestler be re-signed immediately or how much time would it take?

They should just have a clause in their contracts that takes cash out of their paychecks for a full year or something.  A set amount that isn't too big but certainly will be missed.  Firing Orton would be a huge mistake but letting him get away with a 3rd strike kind of kills the whole Wellness thing anyways.  Not an easy position to be in.

Well they fired Chris Masters for Wellness violations and then eventually hired him back. I guess there might be a time delay. Isn't Rey Rey on his last strike too?

I Believe so. So that's Rey, Regal, Orton and Bourne? I Feel like there may be someone else in that category too.

Super Luchas Magazine (superluchas.net), a usually reputable magazine from Mexico, reports that Randy Orton violated the WWE Wellness Policy after testing positive for Dianabol and marijuana.

Marijuana isn't punishable by suspension in WWE, just a $2,500 fine. The report states that Orton tested positive for marijuana, was fined and then tested again for other substances where he tested positive for use of Dianabol. Dianabol (methandrostenolone) is an orally-effective anabolic steroid. Dianabol was commonly used by bodybuilders until Congress banned it under the Controlled Substances Act.

There is no confirmation to this rumor yet so take it for what it's worth.

I Don't know why that Magazine would have the exclusive scoop so feel free to call DSBS on it but just thought i would share.

I Figured it was Pot beings that it has been well known Orton smokes pot but apparently that only gets you a fine? i thought that's how Bourne got suspended?

Okay i have now looked up the list of all suspension on this website WWE Wellness Policy Violations - list of all the ones we know - WWE - Pro Wrestling - The W message board

And actually Chris Masters only had 2 strikes when he was fired.

Orton has been suspended 3 times now but his first time was not a wellness violation

The only other Superstar that i left out that has 2 strikes is Booker T. but i don't know if they test commentators or why he would even be doing anything to be suspended.

Reports came out from SuperLuchas on Monday that Randy Orton’s WWE future was up in the air after meeting with Vince McMahon, Triple H and Kevin Dunn at WWE headquarters on Friday. The report stated that the meeting’s atmosphere was “hostile” and it was determined a further decision concerning Orton awaits. SuperLuchas says that several WWE officials were lobbying for Orton’s termination as a cost-cutting measure.
 
PWInsider now reports that WWE officials indeed met with Orton over the weekend and there is definitely talk about not bringing him back as soon as his suspension is over. Their report doesn’t mention Orton being terminated but the idea would be to make Orton “sit it out and stew” once the suspension is over.

I think Randy has lost his "it" factor but he is popular, but they have also cut popular stars before and manage to live.

Those occurred when he was a wrestler before he went to TNA. The 2nd suspension might have been the last straw with him (as far as why he wanted to leave WWE).
