“I was in Puerto Rico when they called me suddenly” – Primo Colon

Primo Colon has since gone public regarding the situation, whilst speaking to Puerto Rican newspaper Primera Hora. The 36 year old Superstar stated “I was not scheduled for any event in the near future,” he said. “I was in Puerto Rico when they called me suddenly. Not to use me, but so that I would travel to do a doping test. I was ready to do it, but I told them that I was in Puerto Rico and that I was willing to go to a place [lab] that they chose to test me without any problem, no bother. I was not going to pay for a trip simply to just get tested for doping.”

Colon then confirmed that he never heard back from WWE, saying “then I didn’t hear anything from the company in respect to it. I thought they were going to call me when they had found a place to do the test. Almost two months pass and I get the letter that I am suspended, according to them, because I refused to take the test. And that is not correct. They took it like as I was out of the country, but I was available.”

Primo has confirmed that he intends on appealing the suspension. “I don’t want them to say that I failed, [that I] gave a positive test, because that is totally false and incorrect,” he stated. “… I did not give [a] positive to absolutely anything. I was in Puerto Rico, I have to clarify this, because my reputation is worth more than any check.”
