Ascension member Konnor, Adam Rose fail Wellness tests

The WWE announced this morning that Ray Leppan (Adam Rose) and Ryan Parmeter (Konnor) have both been suspended for 60 days for a second Wellness program violation.

The suspension is effective immediately.

All violations are supposed to be announced publicly.

Both men were not on the current tour but did work the television tapings earlier in the week.  The Ascension lost in the tag team tournament taped Tuesday in a first round match to Enzo & Big Cass.

WWE has in the past delayed suspensions to tie up booking issues and in the case of these two there wouldn't have been the need for much of a delay.

Parmeter (Konnor) was suspended on a Wellness policy violation the first time in 2006 and Leppan (Rose) was suspended on a Wellness policy violation the first time in 2013.

Rose is part of the Social Outcasts group, but only Heath Slater and Bo Dallas were sent to Dubai.  It is possible that Los Matadores, who haven't been used of late and are already doing vignettes for a new gimmick without masks, were on that same tour as replacements because The Ascension would have fit into that spot.

Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez will discuss this on tonight's new edition of Wrestling Observer Radio.
