The DEA will not investigate WWE star Roman Reigns or actors Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel despite Richard Rodriguez claiming they were clients of his illegal steroids distribution ring. TMZ.com cites law enforcement sources as telling them that the agency does not target alleged buyers of illegal drugs.
Powell’s POV: Reigns issued a statement to Prowrestling.net on Wednesday evening to dispute the claims and went so far as to say he’s never met Rodriguez. “I have never heard of Richard Rodriguez or Wellness Fitness Nutrition,” Reigns said. “I learned from the mistake I made nearly two years ago and paid the penalty for it. Since then, I’ve passed 11 tests as part of WWE’s independent drug testing program.” Wahlberg has also denied the allegations made by Rodriguez, who is currently in prison after a judge ruled that he violated the terms of his bail.
