Adam Rose & Konnor suspended by WWE for Wellness Policy violations

While the press release doesn't offer any specifics, it's clear that Social Outcasts will be down one Radical Mongoose and Viktor will be working Superstars by himself for the next couple months, as WWE today announced the suspensions of Adam Rose and Konnor for their second violation of the Wellness Policy:

STAMFORD, Conn., April 16, 2016 - In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE has suspended Raymond Leppan (Adam Rose) and Ryan Parmeter (Konnor) each for 60 days effective immediately for a second violation of the company's policy.

The company's policy, as described in detail here, calls for suspensions based on positive tests for substances "other than marijuana and alcohol". The banned substances list still covers a wide range of medications and drugs such as performance enhancers, painkillers, muscle relaxants, stimulants and diuretics.

WWE will almost certainly not comment further, but expect the suspensions of Leppan and Parmeter to be fodder for reports and rumors over the coming days.

An interesting note, and source of potential backlash for the company, will be the reminder that a second Wellness Policy violation merits the same length of punishment as Titus O'Neil received for the incident on-stage after Raw following Daniel Bryan's retirement.
