WWE Suspends Roman Reigns

(Royal Rumble favorite Roman Reigns)

WWE issued a statement on their official website announcing the suspension of former WWE World Heavyweight Champion following a violation of the company’s wellness policy. The brief statement reads:

“WWE has suspended Joe Anoa’i (Roman Reigns) for 30 days effective immediately for his first violation of the company’s talent wellness policy.”

Reigns lost his WWE World Heavyweight Championship to Seth Rollins at Sunday’s WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view. Dean Ambrose would later then go on to defeat Rollins by cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase which he won earlier in the night.

Following the conclusion of last night’s main event on Raw, which saw Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins both getting counted out, it was announced that Dean Ambrose will defend his title in a triple threat match at WWE Battleground.

It will be interesting to see how WWE handles this going forward.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
