The WWE Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) has shone a spotlight on top international independent wrestlers, but such attention has also raised a troubling question: are its performers attaining their slender physiques by using performance-enhancing salads?
One need only glance at wiry beanpoles like Zack Sabre Jr. and Jack Gallagher to wonder: how are these guys getting so svelte?
The roster of the CWC has nary an ounce of body fat, including willowy performers whose ultra-lean bodies seem to indicate higher-than-normal levels of baby spinach:
- Gran Metalik (Mexico): 167 pounds
- Harv Shira (India): 112 pounds
- Anthony Bennet (USA): 27 milligrams
“According to one source, kale abuse is rampant backstage,” wrote veteran wrestling journalist Dan Mutzler.
“And the Wellness Policy simply has no way of testing for organic quinoa.”
