NXT Superstar Wesley Blake — Arrested For DUI This Summer, Refused to Take Test; WWE Responds

Former NXT Tag Team Champion Wesley Blake was arrested for DUI the day before the 4th of July this summer … and Pro Wrestling Sheet has obtained video of his refusal to take a BAC test.

Blake was arrested on July 3rd around 3AM and his license was promptly suspended — according to court documents obtained by Pro Wrestling Sheet.

In the video, officers remind Blake — real name Cory Weston — that his license will be suspended for a year if he doesn’t agree to a blood, urine or breath test. The 28 year-old doesn’t budge however.

Court records show Blake initially entered a plea of not guilty, but eventually waived his right to a speedy trial and the case was put into a pre-trial diversion program — which means he avoided sentencing by entering into a program with some requirements.

Unclear what those exact requirements were, but the Florida State Attorney’s office says it usually means the defendant has to participate in community service and a series of classes. If completed successfully, the charge will be dropped.

No word on whether WWE had any knowledge of the arrest. However, Blake and Murphy dropped the tag team titles to The Vaudevillains a few weeks after he was locked up.

A rep for WWE tells us, “Cory Weston is responsible for his own actions.”
