WWE star Roman Reigns issues statement denying steroid allegations

Richard Rodriguez is now in jail accused of operating a steroid distribution ring from his gym in Miami and alleged he sold the drugs to Reigns. "So, that's one of the reasons why I disclosed him".

In a revealing from prison, Rodriguez explained how on many occasions the famous actors would have the drugs delivered under a different name to prevent any direct identification.

In a statement to PWInsider, Reigns said, "I have never heard of Richard Rodriguez or Wellness Fitness Nutrition". "This is an individual that's very well-known and will help me in extending into a market that I'm very interested in", Rodriguez said, referring to the market of A-list celebrities. "He said, "[Wahlberg] was a really good person, but as it started to get more in-depth - our relationship - he just started to become a little bit more demanding.

"He [Reigns] is a very down to earth person, however, a situation involved in which... often times when you're brought to trials - which I was not, I made a decision to take a plea - however, they disclose discovery".

Almost two years ago, Roman Reigns was suspended for violating the WWE Wellness policy.

Reigns is the current WWE intercontinental champion and will defend his title this Monday on the 25th anniversary of Raw against former champion The Miz.

The 6ft 3in, 265lb, Reigns is known for his time with the fan favourite faction The Shield, and is expected to once again headline Wrestlemania - WWE's biggest show - in April.

WWE has also not stated how it will handle the allegations against him.

A new report from Bleacher Report is suggesting that Roman Reigns is being linked to a steroid distribution ring that took place in February 2017.
