World Wrestling Entertainment has recently made a change to its Wellness Policy that closes up a pretty big loophole and clarifies the standing of a Superstar with Wellness violations who leaves the company and then returns at a later time.
The update states:
Many WWE superstars with Wellness violations on their record have left the company only to return at a later date – but it was previously unknown whether those violations remained on their record. Now, we know – your record isn’t wiped clean when you take a few months off. For somebody like Jeff Hardy – should he return to WWE one day, he’ll do so with his existing “2 strikes” and would then be let go should he fail another test.
