Roman Reigns Linked to Steroid Distribution Ring by Accused Dealer

Roman Reigns could be in huge trouble.

The reigning Intercontinental Champion has been named as an alleged client of jailed steroid distributor Robert Rodriguez, who is being investigated by the DEA, according to a report by Forbes.

According to a report by the Miami Herald, Rodriguez’s Wellness Fitness Nutrition LLC (WFN) was raided by the DEA last February following an investigation.

WFN’s client list included “at least 50 customers in the Eastern District of New York” in a ring that made over $10 million in the distribution of illegal steroids.

In an interview with filmmaker Jon Bravo that was released on YouTube last week, Rodriguez names Reigns and actors Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel among his clients.

Rodriguez says his motive is “to clear my name and just make people well aware, there’s a lot more people out there that were involved and are associated with my company that many individuals did not know.”

As to why he’s chosen Reigns as one of the associates to reveal:

“One of them, in particular, is a very famous wrestler by the name of Roman Reigns. He was originally introduced to me by one of the informants [laughs]. I’ve probably heard his name in the past due to numerous videos that Jonny Bravo has done, and also some including myself on my own channel.

“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 decided to take a plea – however, they disclose discovery. Discovery is basically the proof that they have against you.

“One thing, one part of the discovery is what’s called tried and true statements, which is basically disclosing everybody whom the investigators or people that were investigating you have spoken to with regards to your company, with regards to you, with regards to any other co-defendants that are associated with the indictment. So, that’s one of the reasons why I disclosed him.”

Beginning at the 4:30 mark in this video below, Rodriguez starts talking about Reigns.

Reigns has been previously suspended by WWE before. He was forced to sit out 30 days as a result of a wellness violation in 2016, which Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer reported as a positive test for Adderall.

Reigns is slated to defend the Intercontinental Championship against The Miz next Monday at Raw’s 25th anniversary show.
