Vince McMahon bet big on Roman Reigns when Seth Rollins went down with an injury last November. In a way, The Chairman had to do it, but it was ultimately what he wanted to do, so it all worked out.
That was until a few weeks ago when Reigns violated the WWE Wellness Policy and was forced to drop the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank. Apparently, his punishment isn’t quite over.
The Rollins Report segment on Raw was a rib directed at Reigns and while it was used to promote the Triple Threat Match at WWE Battleground later this month, there’s more to the story. McMahon is still upset with Reigns over his Wellness violation and directed the segment at him.
Reigns’ failure came at a time when McMahon’s support for him as “The Guy” had begun to dwindle.
