A major story during the last few weeks has been alleged steroids distributor Richard Rodriguez accusing Roman Reigns of using performance enhancing drugs. After a great deal of hype and promises to release evidence implicating Reigns, today Rodriguez’s friend and associate Jon Bravo released a new video discussing the allegations.
Near the end of the video, it is specifically said that there is not enough evidence to prove that Reigns made purchases. Rodriguez says he “knows” Reigns made the purchases, but without the laptops and phones currently in government possession, he can’t offer the official proof.
Opinion: I’m very, very skeptical about most of the wrestling connections here, if nothing else due to a long list of inaccuracies in the video. For instance, Steve Austin is spelled “Steve Austyn”, Rodriguez refers to Kevin Nash as “Steve Nash” and saying that Daniel Puder won a “tough man a few years back” when it was Tough Enough fourteen years ago. The ending, with Bravo saying that he’ll have the necessary documents soon comes off like “tune in next time to see the real story”, which doesn’t come off as journalism but rather carnival barking. I don’t buy what we’re being presented here.
Reigns has issued a response, which can be heard here:
