Who? If anything, it will probably lead to either Rey just retiring or Rey doing one last run probably from SummerSlam to Mania then calling it a career. I wonder if he was considered a two time abuser after the Mexican Prescriptions from a few years ago.
Update. It looks like his Wizard World Philly Sunday one day only appearance got shelved, too. Good thing, I choose to go with Punk on Saturday. Sucks for those kids with tickets though. Wonder if they will bring in someone to make it up.

That's the previous strike I was thinking of. I dont remember the Mexican pharmacy thing at all.
His 2009 failure was after failing a normal test. Rey blamed a doctor subscribed medication for knee/arm injuries. He wasn't on the list for Signature Pharmacy case, according to the first article I googled.

I recall him blaming the WWE front office. His story was that the prescription was perfectly legit but because he was shipped overseas the day after getting it, he didn't have time to report it properly.

Meltzer says Rey failed a test back on February 13, when he visited RAW as they ran in San Diego. He was just dropping by to visit, but was grabbed for a drug test immediately coming in the building.
Rey failed for amphetamines. No specific drug mentioned, and that's been the hold up. Rey says he has no idea what he failed for, but he was taking supplements and they were trying to figure out where it could've came from. Meltzer guesses it was a weight loss thing that caused the failure, but doesn't know. Rey was fighting the suspension, but the fight must be over if they finally announced it. I guess you don't want this on your record, but the suspension would be over by now if he just took it to start with.
WWE found out Rey failed the test back in mid February, which explains some stories around the time about Vince being unhappy with Rey. Rey was planning to return around June, but they called him this week and told him to aim for July.
Whoa, good catch! I didn't even think of that! So...does that mean they'd consider the World Heavyweight Championship lineage to go straight back to the WCW belt before it was given to HHH on RAW, or would it be considered a brand-new championship?
