Roman Reigns Suspended For Wellness Violation

He’s not a good guy… He’s not a bad guy… He’s The Guy… who just got suspended earlier today for violating the WWE‘s wellness policy. Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns, was suspended earlier this afternoon. No word on what was discovered in his system at the time of testing, but, it obviously falls on the company’s list of illegal substances that superstars are not allowed to use.

Reigns, whose real name is Joe Anoa’i, has been suspended for 30 days, effective today. Reigns would take to Twitter to apologize to fans, friends and family alike after finding out the news:

“I apologize to my family, friends and fans for my mistake in violating WWE’s wellness policy. No excuses. I own it.”

Reigns competed last night on RAW against fellow former World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, who dethroned Reigns at Money in the Bank on Sunday. Rollins’ title rein would be short lived, as the MITB winner Dean Ambrose cashed in his MITB briefcase shortly after the title match, and pinned Rollins for the title.

The ending of their match on RAW set up a three-way title match for the upcoming Battleground PPV, but with the suspension, it puts plans for the feud on hold for the time being.
