Roman Reigns received a lot of credit from his peers with his reaction to his first violation of the WWE Wellness Policy. For those that missed it, Reigns issued the following statement after his suspension was announced:
“I apologize to my family, friends and fans for my mistake in violating WWE’s wellness policy,” Reigns tweeted. “No excuses. I own it.”
There continues to be all kinds of questions regarding the credibility of the WWE Wellness Policy. We heard and reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com that Vince McMahon was originally going to punish him by having him pinned clean on the Money in the Bank pay-per-view. It ended up they had to suspend him when word of his failure leaked but it was known well before the pay-per-view.
