As noted, WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns was recently implicated as a customer in a steroid distribution ring by imprisoned steroids dealer Richard Rodriguez, who has been incarcerated since the DEA raided his Miami gym in February 2017.
The accusations against Reigns, and actors Mark Wahlberg & Josh Duhamel, were made during a phone interview Rodriguez did with Jon Bravo.
TMZ reports that law enforcement sources have confirmed that Reigns, Wahlberg and Duhamel will not be investigated by the DEA because the agency does not target alleged buyers of illegal drugs. The agency instead focuses their resources on going after alleged kingpins like Rodriguez and other distributors, manufacturers and traffickers.
Reigns issued a statement to us last week and said he doesn’t even know who Rodriguez is. Wahlberg is also saying the claims made by Rodriguez are false.
“I have never heard of Richard Rodriguez or Wellness Fitness Nutrition,” Reigns’ statement read. “I learned from the mistake I made nearly two years ago and paid the penalty for it. Since then, I’ve passed 11 tests as part of WWE’s independent drug testing program.”
