The former WWE World Tag Team Champion tested positive for THC, the main ingredient in marijuana, and was suspended by the Kentucky Boxing and Wrestling Authority as a result.
A spokesperson for the Kentucky Boxing and Wrestling Authority told The Sun: “The KBWA can confirm Mr. Brendli has been suspended, dating back to March 21, 2009. The KBWA board will be meeting next month to review the suspension and until that time, we cannot release the reasons behind the suspension.”
Drug suspensions such as in this case have ranged from six months to one full year with fines up to $500. This past June, Brendli was released from his WWE contract following a Driving under the influence charge in Florida.
