Update on Marijuana Violations in WWE, WWE Diva Confused with Gail Kim

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

– WWE developmental women’s wrestler Angela Fong, who’s worked a a number of WWE live events in recent weeks as a ring announcer, noted on her Twitter account that fans were constantly mistaking her for Gail Kim over the weekend.

Fong wrote: “Would be a millionaire if I had a quarter for every, “hey gail kim” this wkd!! Heheh…no worries tho..just wait til I debut one day ;)”

She also congratulated all of the Florida Championship Wrestling talent that debuted on last night’s episode of ECW. Fong wrote: “Congrats to all the FCW people that debuted on ECW tonight!!! Hard work does pay off!!! 🙂 yay!!!”

– WWE officials have reportedly lightened up on marijuana test violations in recent months. Just as there always has been a $1,000 fine for positive tests, punishments no longer appear to be political.

Several months ago, company officials cracked down on several repeat offenders by scaling back their respective pushes. The issue was serious enough that even some top wrestlers stopped smoking marijuana out of fear of how management would react. However, some of the wrestlers who stopped using pot at the time have resumed, and there doesn’t appear to be any sign of their pushes being affected.

It should be noted that positive marijuana tests are not considered to be violations of the company’s Wellness Policy.
