If you are in the UK and hoping to see WWE Diva Rosa Mendes, don't hold your breath.

It appears the WWE has sent Mendes back home following some issues during the European leg of its tour.

WrestleZone.com reported the following:

WWE Diva Rosa Mendes was sent home by WWE from the current European Tour, a source told WrestleZone earlier today. Mendes was apparently "drunk" for almost the entire Euro trip, and WWE decided "it was clearly enough".

The site has since followed up on this report and received the following statement from the WWE: "Milena Roucka (Rosa Mendes) left the international tour for personal reasons."

Hopefully Mendes didn't screw her spot up with the WWE. Don't get me wrong, it’s not like she is a key player for the company, but a spot is a spot when it comes to working for the largest wrestling firm in the world.

However, if the initial report is accurate, she may want to seek some help from a WWE-sponsored facility before it’s too late.

Keep in mind, I am not judging her, I just don't want to see yet another person involved in this business head down the wrong road. As a fan, I have witnessed one too many stars destroy his or her career due to some form of substance abuse.

Even though it's a different world in terms of accountability and getting sober, the story remains the same. This marks the third WWE wrestler in as many months to have been in the news for a drug or alcohol related issue. To me, this means that the WWE still has a long road ahead before it can claim that its Wellness Policy is working.

In the end, we will have to wait and see where this goes, as she could easily be back on our TVs by next week or working for TNA in three months.
