Troy ‘Two Dimes’ Donovan Released By WWE Due To Failed Drugs Test WWE

Former WWE NXT 2.0 star Troy ‘Two Dimes’ Donovan was released by the company less than a week ago, and we now know why.

Initially, it was reported that Donovan’s release was due to a “policy issue”, which didn’t really make the exact reason clear.

Now, in today’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Meltzer clarified that Donovan was fired because of a failed drugs test.

Many people had suspected that’s what “policy issue” indicated, but it hadn’t been confirmed until now.

Donovan was told by WWE Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis that if everything’s clear in a year, he should apply for a job to return.

After the initial news came to light, Donovan tweeted:

Thank you to everyone who’s reached out. Mistakes happen and lessons are learned. A bump in the road doesn’t define me though. I’ll be back

Donovan was brought onto NXT 2.0 TV months ago as a member of Tony D’Angelo’s ‘family’ alongside Channing ‘Stacks’ Lorenzo.

Before his WWE signing was announced in March, he had previously wrestled as Cole Karter, most notably for AEW including a match on Dynamite in April 2021. He is also the boyfriend of current NXT 2.0 star Thea Hail.
