Roman Reigns Suspended
WWE – STAMFORD, Conn. — 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 issued a statement on Twitter regarding his suspension:
I apologize to my family, friends and fans for my mistake in violating WWE’s wellness policy. No excuses. I own it.

Wow, that came out of nowhere. I guess now we know what was behind the title switch at Money in the Bank. It looks like it won’t impact the Main Event of Battleground however as that PPV is over 30 days away. This does make you wonder what happens with Reigns going forward. The WWE has spent a lot of money the last couple years pushing Reigns as the next face of the company. Will this impact those plans? In the squeaky clean, PG era will WWE want a guy suspended for drug use as the one carrying the flag? Stick with BDARadio.com as I’m sure we’ll have much more to come!
