Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and Roman Reigns of WWE. An arrested steroids dealer, Richard Rodriguez, named the three celebrities during a phone interview with filmmaker Jon Bravo from the Brooklyn Detention Center in NY.

I don't think that anything will come of this, as the investigation occurred over a year ago.

Though the allegations had been out days earlier, various outlets picked up claims from a convicted steroid distributor that one of WWE's top superstars, Roman Reigns, was involved with a steroid ring.

Adding, "Since then, I've passed 11 tests as part of WWE's independent drug testing program".

"I'm not trying to monetize anything at all", Rodriguez told filmmaker Jon Bravo. Rodriguez is the former Iron Addicts Gym owner in Miami, FL and claims that Reigns is one of the many celebrities he sold steroids too.

Richard Rodriguez was the main target of a DEA raid on Iron Addicts Gym in Miami, Florida in February 2017 and was arrested for heading up an global steroid ring.

GETTY ROMAN REIGNS WWE's top guy has denied any knowledge of the WFN or Richard Rodriguez

WWE has not commented at this time.

In a revealing from prison, Rodriguez explained how on many occasions the famous actors would have the drugs delivered under a different name to prevent any direct identification.

Reigns who has been suspended once for violating WWE's Wellness policy programme in June 2016 denied knowing Rodriguez and taking any steroids from him. The violation cost him a 30-day suspension from the WWE.

Rodriguez is being investigated by the DEA, and is already facing charges for conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids and money laundering. Read the Eastern District of New York's media release from back then here.

Rodriguez also said he chose to disclose Reigns as part of his plea.
