Pro Wrestling Torch: Cena Should Agree to Random Independent Drug Testing

Saturday, November 10th, 2007

Wade Keller of Pro Wrestling Torch – another of the very top-tier wrestling journalists — weighs in on the Cena-CNN matter at http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/WWE_News_3/article_23538.shtml.

Kellers chastises CNN, writing: “If CNN has additional footage that would justify their journalistic choice to exclude a flat denial by Cena – which even if they didn’t buy into, should have been included in the documentary – now is the time to offer it. “

But Keller also adds: “As for Cena’s denials of steroid usage, the best way for him to silence critics is to agree to subject himself to all state athletic commissions voluntarily, and let any independent entity – including an investigation media entity – to test him randomly at any point for steroids and HGH with zero notice at any WWE event or appearance. Vince McMahon made exactly that offer back in 1993-’94, and if Cena did now, that would help him have more credibility than always pointing toward an in-house, suspect testing policy.

Keller hits the nail on the head for what I think should be called the “post-Cena/CNN (and oh, by the way, post-Benoit)” period.
