The WWE Wellness Policy is removed silently and the use of marijuana becomes more common. Randy Orton who is the RAW Tag Team Champion is an internal figure in influencing this decision. It is a big change on the main roster and the WWE talent seems to be happy with it.

Randy’s tag team partner Riddle has already been open to talk about the penalties they have to face for marijuana use in WWW NXT. Kona Reeves also didn’t shy away from talking about the same problem in the past. He was released from WWE in August 2021.

You will not be surprised to know that the internal push back by the top stars is very intense. Going back in the 90’s, WWE hall of famer Bret Hart is very open about anti-weed position. The pot use is considered safe as compared to other options. While some other top stars choose other ways to cope up with difficult situations. Here is what the top official from WWE has to say:

“I haven’t even heard anyone as much as gossip over one of the boys or girls smoking weed in years, much less a fine being handed down for it. A lot of the perception has changed, and a lot of what Bret was talking about way back when ended up ringing true.

I don’t expect us to come out with WWE themed cannabis incense any time soon, but the policy has been relaxed and we’ve used a lot of that culture in our storylines’’.
