Adam Rose of The Social Outcasts and Konnor of The Ascension have both been hit with sixty-day suspensions due to their second violations of the WWE’s wellness policy.
A statement on WWE.com regarding the suspensions reads as follows:
In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE has suspended Raymond Leppan (Adam Rose) and Ryan Parmeter (Konnor) each for 60 days effective immediately for a second violation of the company’s policy.
Losing Rose and Konnor isn’t exactly a major blow to WWE television as neither of them are major players, but it’s notable because they are now just one strike away from being fired.
The Social Outcasts will likely be fine without The Radical Mongoose as they can still operate as a three-man group, but the real loser here is Viktor, who now loses his partner and any real reason he had to be featured. With the influx of recent tag teams on the main roster like Enzo and Cass, The Vaudevillians, and The Bullet Club, TV time in the tag division was hard enough to get already, and when Konnor comes back in two months it will be interesting to see the fate of the former NXT Tag Team champions.
It has not yet been released what drugs that either superstar tested positive for to cause the suspension.
