Eva Marie's wellness policy violation reportedly caused by Adderall


According to a report by TMZ on Friday night, Eva Marie’s wellness policy violation that was announced earlier this week was triggered after failing a test for Adderall.

WWE announced on Thursday that Marie had been suspended for 30 days after violating the policy but, as is custom, did not provide any further details.

TMZ also reported that Marie has a prescription for the medication and will be appealing her suspension, but a WWE source told them that she didn’t properly disclose the prescription as all talent are required to do.

Marie's husband Jonathan Coyle tweeted and subsequently deleted a message on Thursday calling the suspension unjust and claiming that facts would be provided soon.

“I am disappointed that this suspension has occurred, yet understand and respect that WWE upholds their wellness policy to the letter and won't compromise on its integrity." Marie told TMZ. "I violated (the) policy by not turning in portions of required paperwork in the time frame WWE medical deemed timely. I look forward to my return!”

Before the suspension was announced, Marie had been scheduled to wrestle this Sunday at SummerSlam.

Now that she is ineligible to compete, the six-woman tag she was originally supposed to participate in is currently listed as a three-on-two handicap match pitting Becky Lynch, Naomi, and Carmella against Natalya and Alexa Bliss. But is teasing that the heels may be able to find a replacement partner in time to even the odds.
