According to The Wrestling Observer, Rey Mysterio tested positive for amphetamines, resulting in his second WWE Wellness Policy Suspension.
According to the report, Rey was informed that he had to go right in for drug testing when he showed up to the Raw taping on February 13 in San Diego. The following week, Vince McMahon was said to be upset with Rey but at the time, nobody knew why.
Rey couldn't believe that he tested positive for amphetamines and says he has been living his life clean. WWE officials asked Mysterio about medications he was taking and he was upfront about everything. A few days ago, officials called him and asked when he would be ready to return. Rey had informed WWE that he could come back in June but was then told by the company that he would have to wait another month because he was being suspended for 60 days.
Mysterio apparently believes he failed the test because of medications he took. WWE obviously did not buy his story as they went public with the failure and suspension last week.
As noted Saturday, Rey was scheduled to go to Japan in a few weeks to do promotional work for WWE but has been replaced by Alberto Del Rio.
