-WWE is going with a "full disclosure" approach regarding Nick Dinsmore's suspension. The man who plays the character Eugene passed out in a hotel lobby last week after taking too many Somas, a popular prescription pill among wrestlers that is often abused. He has agreed, according to WWE.com, to seek professional help. He has flown to a rehab facility to be evaluated for the next two weeks.

-PWTorch.com reader and VIP member Rudy Flyer sent the following recap of the video of the drug testing meeting Vince McMahon held with wrestlers in Sheffield, England; Vince was standing in a room with all of the WWE talents, both Raw and Smackdown. Vince opened by saying that he wanted to tell the wrestlers about the policy before it was leaked. He said they were instituting a drug policy in the next few weeks. He said performance-enhancing drugs along with abuse of prescription drugs would be included in the testing, and that the testing will be done by an independent testing company. He said anyone under a full time contract will be subject to testing. An unidentified wrestler asked if the test would show that a wrestler was taking more than the prescribed amount of a prescription drug. Vince said it would, and that it would be fairly easy to determine if someone was abusing their prescription. He said that testing would be "across the board," and that there would be no special privileges for anyone. A wrestler then asked if the testing would be random and Vince said it would be unannounced and frequent. He said that Vince McMahon would be the second person to find out about an infraction, following only the wrestler himself, and that there would be no excuses for a failed test
