According to Dave Meltzer, WWE's creative team has been informed and given a list of wrestlers who are going to be announced as suspended, so the creative team has a heads up and knows who not to include on next week's three-hour Raw, and who not to write for. There is no official word yet on who is being left off RAW next week, not to mention who has officially been suspended. But Meltzer himself has reported on his radio show that at least a few are top stars within WWE. A few Web sites are speculating that an official announcement will be handed out this week by WWE. Of course since 2007, WWE's Wellness Policy Violation has listed talent who fails a drug test, meaning there names would be made public...which means names shall be forthcoming in a matter of 48 hours, probably
The testing was allegedly done over the weekend at house shows and at RAW itself Monday night.
The questions that arise is how many wrestlers will be suspended and WHO will be suspended?
With HBK still out. Batista now out, and Triple H being brought back just last week, the question arises: can RAW and WWE, as whole, take a hit like this and lose four or five top stars? To make matters worse, the fact that at least several top stars are involved and will be suspended only makes it even worse.
I'm hoping MVP isn't involved in this at all, because if several top RAW talents are suspended, MVP could really get a big push to the title even sooner. I think we can also bet the house John Cena is safe. What a shock it would be, though, if someone from Legacy gets suspended (which would kill the group right now).
And last but not least, if say WWE, or specifically RAW, loses five stars, and Batista's injury keeps him out the proposed four months to top it all off, I wonder if we'll be seeing Mr. Kennedy back in WWE in a matter of weeks.
I personally wouldn't be surprised if Kennedy gets a call, as well as HBK. Worst case scenario, a mass amount of suspensions are handed out this week.
Stay tuned on this one, folks.
