The Undertaker is no longer an active talent for WWE after saying his farewell to in-ring action with the company at Survivor Series last year.
The Deadman enjoyed an illustrious career for three decades before hanging up his boots on his 30th anniversary.
Last year, the WWE legend signed a 15-year legends contract with WWE which means that he will now be able to make appearances for the company when needed but doesn’t have to wrestle for the company anymore.
As part of a recent interview with Joe Rogan, Undertaker was able to go into detail about his last few years in WWE where he talked about the fact that he would still be regularly drug-tested despite only appearing a few times a year.
“Before I switched my contract — now I’m not a talent, I’m a legend — I only worked two or three times a year, but I was under a regular contract. Under a regular contract, and this is if you tested clean, you had to have four mandatory piss tests and two blood tests every year.”
“They’d get to the end of the year and I’d get a call, ‘Go to the lab and do a piss test.’ I hadn’t been in the ring in six or seven months, but they’d look at the book and say ‘oh, we forgot about him.’ So you get the piss test done, but that was only three.”
“Sure enough, next day, another phone call, ‘go back to the lab.’ They’re totally random, they just show up. I was home, that’s why I didn’t get tested until the end. I know what the protocol is and if anyone could get out of it, it would be me, and I couldn’t get out of it.”
This is interesting since it was believed that part-time wrestlers were not tested by WWE’s Wellness Policy, but it appears that WWE may have changed their rules.
