Roman Reigns suspended 30 days by WWE
Roman Reigns was suspended 30 days by the WWE, the company announced on Tuesday.
Reigns’ suspension is for a violation of the promotion’s new “wellness” policy, which is a euphemism if I’ve ever heard one.
I apologize to my family, friends and fans for my mistake in violating WWE’s wellness policy. No excuses. I own it.

No details have emerged yet about the nature of the violation, but it could range from anything like a substance abuse violation to an issue with his annual physical.
Our wrestling insiders tell us that with Reigns failing the policy, the WWE will be less likely to promote/push for him as a champion or headliner when he returns.
