Roman Reigns Suspended for Violating WWE Wellness Policy Is Bombshell News

Roman Reigns has been suspended for 30 days for violating WWE’s wellness policy, WWE has announced. Reigns’ suspension begins now, and he has confirmed the news on his own Twitter account:

I apologize to my family, friends and fans for my mistake in violating WWE’s wellness policy. No excuses. I own it. — Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) June 21, 2016
Though it is presently unclear what exactly triggered the suspension, its significance cannot be overstated.
Roman Reigns Suspended for Violating WWE Wellness Policy Is Bombshell News
Reigns had been WWE’s champion from WrestleMania until this past Sunday, and just last night was announced to be main eventing the upcoming Battleground PPV in a triple threat match for the belt with his former Shield teammates, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. 
The only recent time I can think of that a comparably big name was suspended for violating the company’s wellness policy was Randy Orton in 2012.
