–Ross on Roman Reigns being suspended: “Very disappointed that Roman Reigns has been suspended for 30 days as a result of a failed wellness test in WWE. Hopefully, Reigns took something that he was unaware was a violation. There are lots of supplements on the market that I’m told often times don’t jive with the wellness policy and its up to every talent who may use these supplements to make sure that they are good to ingest. A failure to do is is totally irresponsible. Hopefully this is a one off situation that will never occur again for this talent that WWE is relying on to be a prime time player for years to come.”
Powell’s POV: It will be interesting to see if Reigns ends up publicly disclosing what he tested positive for. WWE doesn’t release that information, but given his high profile status, they may encourage him to discuss it depending on what triggered the suspension. Ross had a lot more to say about the Reigns suspension in his actual blog, so be sure to use the link at the top of the page.
–Ross on Paige: “What’s up with WWE’s Paige who is one of my favorite wrestlers in WWE no matter the gender? Uncomfortable rumors abound on the ‘net about an alleged incident that occurred after MITB Sunday night. Could this have been a personal dispute and if so how will it affect those in turmoil? Matters such as this rarely go unnoticed and one can expect WWE to thoroughly evaluate this matter.”
Powell’s POV: There were photos of what appeared to be a handcuffed Paige on the Vegas Strip that popped up online. She was not charged with any crime and she appeared on Raw after the incident. Stay tuned.
