Vince McMahon Originally Planned To Cover Up Roman Reigns’ Wellness Suspension

Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns received a lot of credit from his peers with his reaction to his first violation of the WWE Talent Wellness Program.

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 wrote on Twitter. “No excuses. I own it.”

There continues to be all kinds of questions regarding the credibility of the Wellness Program. Vince McMahon planned to punish Reigns by having him drop the WWE World Heavyweight Championship via clean pinfall and that was going to be it. However, word of Reigns’ failed test got out and Vince then felt last Monday that it needed to be announced publicly by WWE.
