Why was Billy Gunn fired from WWE?

Billy Gunn was fired from WWE on more than one occasion.

Back in 2015, WWE fired Billy Gunn from his job as a trainer at the WWE Performance Center for an interesting reason.

He failed a drug test.

It turned out that Billy Gunn was given a four-year suspension from powerlifting competitions after his drug tests showed incredibly high testosterone levels. The failed test happened at a powerlifting meet on July 25 of that year, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
