As WrestlingInc.com is reporting:
SuperLuchas.net reports Cody Rhodes recently tested positive on a drug test for a banned substance but was cleared after providing a valid prescription from a licensed and treating physician.
Prior to being cleared, it would appear that Rhodes believed he was facing suspension. The day after dropping the Intercontinental Championship to Christian at Over the Limit, he cryptically wrote on Twitter: “Time off.” He appeared at the following day’s SmackDown taping in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and all SmackDown shows since then.
I personally went to the SuperLuhas.net website myself. However, after taking only one year of Spanish in high school, I am far from qualified to translate the Hispanic wrestling websites article. That being said, if you are fluent in the Spanish language, feel free to read the full article here.
Now back to Rhodes, if this is indeed true then you have to give kudos to the WWE’s appeals process. Ultimately, they could have easily written Rhodes off, no questions asked and not have allowed him to defend himself.
Let’s face it, who could blame them as the WWE has been burned by too many of it’s stars.
In the end, if this story is true, it’s refreshing to see a wrestler in the news because of a misunderstanding. Rather, than being suspended for actually taking a banned substance.
So, let me know what you think: Should Rhodes have been suspended, or did the WWE do right by him?
