WWE's Wellness Policy Loophole

WWE's Wellness Policy Loophole

 According to the WWE Wellness policy (which is available on the
corporate website), the company can suspend a second-time offender
indefinitely if the wrestler refuses to enter a drug rehabilitation
program. The policy reads: "Alternatively, in cases where the Talent
appears to be in need of a drug rehabilitation program, the Talent
shall not be assigned to work until the individual has successfully
completed the drug rehabilitation program. However, regardless of the
length of the program, the Talent's fine shall be limited to 60 days
pay." The policy also allows WWE to continue using Jeff Hardy on
television during the suspension. Television would be without pay,
pay-per-views with pay, and $200 per house show event. In accordance
with the policy, WWE could have Hardy appear at WrestleMania 24.
Although, the stipulation is pretty much used so that the company can
write talent out of storylines, and in the case of Monday's Raw, drop
championship belts.
