    Nice. Makes room for other talent. He won’t be getting to a main event status again this year I hope.

    • The Prince Of All Saiyans

      Orton was suspended twice and was back in the main event soon after.

      • MatthijsKlerkx

        Oh yeah, forgot that already…

        Lame people over there.

        • Fat Owens Fat

          Yeah, what sort of lame people over there decided to pass the title onto Ambrose?

      • Z….

        ya, but Randy Orton has been one of the most talented guys they had throughout his time there, and for a good while, was probably their best thing going. I dont think it totally bodies Reigns, but it obviously slows down the monster throat shoving

  • Zack

    Too funny. Sales drop, wellness suspension, now WWE might see him as a liability……WAIT!!!! That means they’ll have to delay the Shield Triple Threat until SummerSlam. Things just work out sometimes ??

    • DexDude

      For the record, he will still be back by the PPV (and could still be back on the RAW before it if they let him back 1 day early). They haven’t officially changed anything yet and everything is still advertised as a triple threat match so it’s possible they still leave it at that with Roman just not appearing on TV until the PPV.

      That would honestly be stupid.. but it’s possible and I could see WWE doing it.

      • Zack

        Agreed. For a main event, he should be present for the build up. Otherwise, they should’ve done an injury storyline where he comes back on said Raw or PPV. It looks like the drug test was after last night’s show due to the triple threat match being made beforehand, at least that makes sense. But more should be revealed next week ON THE NEXT “EXCITING” EPISODE OF MONDAY NIGHT RRRRRAWWWWW.

        • Damian Starr

          I am wondering if this is a retroactive punishment that has been timed well due to the 5 week gap…

      • blove112

        Hmmm i think ur math is off. If he is suspended until the 21st of July and the ppv is on the 24 th. How does returning on the 20th put him on raw? The 18th would be Monday

    • Barooq Kidd #POP

      Haha I instantly thought that this might be a work

      • Zack

        I wouldn’t think a drug test fail would be a work just from a perspective that it could lead to merchandise sale drops. To whomever is anti drug lol

      • T-Rock (#TeamHollywood)

        I thought it was fake

    • josh

      This is WWE we are talking about. Come on now.

  • The Shockmaster

    Lol believe that!

  • Zack

    Not related to Reigns but Wrestlezone reported that Becky was originally supposed to turn heel on Nattie and not the other way around.

    More importantly, Nattie is planning on not renewing her contract when it comes up later this year because WWE won’t clear Tyson Kidd and they want off the road.

  • Lisa

    I bet indy fanboys will be celebrating after reading this. Sad.

    • Jakerams

      I’m mixed on this. I’d rather Ambrose was suspended or both of them together. But Reigns was a close second so I’ll take what they give.

      • T-Rock (#TeamHollywood)

        I rather you get suspended off this site

    • The Shockmaster

      Well, Roman’s certainly getting a positive reaction now! 😉

  • #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

    I wonder if they will go kayfabe on TV about where Reigns is or they probably won’t say anything about it at all…

  • The Shockmaster

    “What’s Roman Anoa’i doing in the Impact Zone?”

  • Mikey Shango #DunDunDuuunnnnnn
    • ‘Drowen Hart #NN #NBNC ?????

      Wait till Immad sees this ???

      • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

        The greatest day of my life ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

        • Lisa

          That’s just sad and embarassing.

          • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

            Awwwwwwweeeee poor Lisa ??

    • Bite Me You Loser

      Pee-lieve THAT

      • Mean Dean

        Even the needle didn’t want to be around him

  • Mike

    Oh my god. Well it shows wwe will suspend anybody if they break the rules.

  • IM MAD JOHNSON #NewNation

    ????????????????????????????????????????????? BUMMAN IS ON THE SAUCE ?????????????????????????????????????????????????

    • Fat Owens Fat

      Do you have any report to say it was “The sauce”? What is to say it wasn’t prescription pain killers or supplements that triggered the test?

      • Z….

        doesnt matter. Its just like how people treat dudes that accidentally take something in baseball. Nobody cares. They just assume you’re a cheater. The perception is bad, especially from stupid people. Therefore, it looks bad to have a person caught for anything in prominent position when you are a company like WWE, and probably especially so in their case. And at the end of the day, you are always responsible for what you put into your own body. If you dont know something is or isnt on the banned list, your probably shouldnt be putting it into your body

        • Fat Owens Fat

          Maybe you should read MVP’s tweet a bit more. He clearly says that the WWE endorsed supplements can also be a cause for a violation. How do you expect something sold through the company to violate its own policies? And what is to be done say after a doctor prescribed pain killer was suddenly on the list of banned substances?

          • Z….

            well, that sort of thing has happened in baseball too, where a trainer prescribed something, and it turned out to actually have had something on the banned substance list. Like I said, I dont personally care, but the reasoning they usually give is that you should do as much research as possible about anything you put in your body. You should never just take something someone tells you to take. Obviously, considering that you are trusting whatever person gave it to you, its not entirely your fault, but the usual stance given is that it is

          • Fat Owens Fat

            But if its a WWE prescribed or advertised product(be it supplement or meds by WWE doc), then the company should take the blame too?

  • Zack

    Now if this happened to golden boy Cena…

  • Z….

    And It Is ALL OVER!! GG……………rofl

  • cp munk

    Guess will save the shield triple threat for summerslam. Until then I’m happy to watch Rollins and ambrose make poetry in the ring

    • Joseph Lisnow

      i’d rather WWE wait until summerslam. battleground isn’t’ big enough ppv.

      • cp munk

        Ya I’d rather wait till then too. I was kinda surprised that they announced the triple threat for battleground

  • The Middle Finger

    Reigns is pretty smart, and given the level he was on, you can only start to think that he’s trying to get himself fired on purpose.

    If he ever went to TNA, he’d bring it down quicker.
