WWE will not suspend Brock Lesnar despite the fact that he failed multiple USADA drug tests leading up to his UFC 200 fight against Mark Hunt.

 

“WWE’s talent wellness program does not apply to part-time performers such as Brock Lesnar,” a WWE spokesperson told TMZ.com

 

Lesnar is due to perform at WWE's marquee mid-year event, Summerslam in August, but there was suggestion that the Sports Entertainment organisation would have to discipline him for his failed tests.

 

However as the WWE doesn't sit under WADA or USASA banners they are under no obligation to punish Lesnar for his doping failures.

 

The UFC has yet to comment publicly on the on-going fallout from the UFC 200 clash between Lesnar and Kiwi Mark Hunt, but following Hunt's tirade earlier this week a company spokesperson contacted Hunt yesterday to clear the air.
