It's all about doing your rehab. When I tore my pec that was my first major surgery. And I went to [Dr. James] Andrews in Birmingham and Kevin Wilk's got an awesome clinic over there in Birmingham - a lot of our guys have been down there - and I'm next to NFL guys who are just happy to be hurt... And I get it, it's tough work. But the second I woke up from anasthesia, even loopy, 'give me a stress ball so I can just start doing something'. Because you know your body, you know what you can push it to...that's why I got back from the pec so early. It was a cool surprise at the Rumble. But I wanted to get back - I don't like being away.
WWE does do blood testing but they do not say what their testing is able to detect nor what wrestlers test positive for when they are suspended. Holly claims that during his time there was no blood testing for HGH, only for diseases like HIV. In fact British rugby player Terry Newton was the first professional athlete ever to test positive for illegal use of HGH reports the BBC , and that was in 2009. American sports groups like the NFL and MLB are only just wheeling out programs after hot debate, and there is still no agreed on form of testing. MMA and most other sports are not even close to standard HGH testing.
