Roman Reigns was suspended for 30 days violating the WWE's talent wellness policy.

World Wrestling Entertainment suspended wrestler Roman Reigns for 30 days effective immediately after violating the company’s talent wellness policy.

Real name Joe Anoa`i, Reigns lost the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on Sunday night at the “Money in the Bank” pay-per-view to Seth Rollins, likely as a result of the pending failed drug test.

Reigns’ last appearance was in the main event of “Monday Night Raw.” His 30-day suspension would end before the WWE’s next pay-per-view, “Battleground,” on July 24.

Reigns is scheduled to compete in the main event of that show against Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.

Since the WWE started making all wellness policy violations public in 2007, Reigns is one of the biggest names to make the list, joining the likes of Randy Orton and former WWE wrestler Rey Mysterio.
