For the second time since 2008 Michael Hayes has been suspended from the WWE. Hayes reportedly was sharing alcoholic beverages to WWE Diva Rosa Mendes who just returned to WWE television after going through rehab for substance abuse. In what appears to be a zero tolerance response Hayes has reportedly been suspended indefinitely for this.
In 2008 Hayes was suspended during Wrestlemania weekend for offending Mark Henry. At the time Hayes allegedly used a racial slur when speaking to Henry and a physical altercation took place. This in addition to claims from Bobby Lashley at the time about racism from Hayes.
With WWE's focus on creating a positive image and taking better care of their superstars it should not come as much of a shock that the WWE responded with a suspension to Hayes. A little incident like that could undo a lot of hard work on Mendes' part during her time in rehab. That being said some people feel as though WWE is overreacting because Mendes is responsible for her own actions and Hayes was not forcing her to drink. With more than one strike against him and the WWE being more in the public eye than ever how long can Michael Hayes ride this thin line before he takes it too far? We would like to thank Court Bauer for releasing the news about Hayes' suspension on his podcast which can be found here.
