Last year, weeks after Brock Lesnar’s UFC return had resulted in him testing positive for a banned substance, clomiphene, that is used with steroid cycles, he headlined SummerSlam. WWE not only didn’t punish him, but eventually admitted that “WWE’s talent wellness program does not apply to part-time performers such as Brock Lesnar.” This implies that The Rock, Triple H, The Undertaker, Sting, and Bill Goldberg were not tested while in WWE, either, and if John Cena is now considered a part-time performer, which seems like a completely reasonable scenario, then you can add him to that list, as well. Whatever role bodybuilding drugs played or didn’t play in Chris Benoit killing his family, WWE’s testing program did improve in the aftermath, even if it’s had some new holes poked in it over time, as well.
Unsure of his partner from the start, Cena admitted that he was starting to believe The Deadman was actually dead, but that didn’t stop the two powerhouses from rocking the ring. Holding their own against two more experienced duos, the Cenation leader and The Demon from Death Valley weren’t exactly pulling off Hart Foundation-style double-team maneuvers. They were more or less just hitting whatever was in front of him. That proved to be more than enough in the end as the fearsome Undertaker distracted The Game, allowing Cena to deliver an Attitude Adjustment to get the win for his team in The World’s Most Famous Arena.
