So what's up with Reigns?

He's currently being Benoit'd, but surely they can't be serious about this? Are they trying a bit of reverse psychology here to build sympathy for Roman? Or are they actually blackballing him for bailing on WM?

I think it's a legit blackballing. The social media ban is a dead giveaway. Vince is one petty motherfucker.

Agreed. 
 


Reigns’ wife is pregnant with twins plus he has other kids and older family that lives with him. Oh yeah and he has a history of leukemia. He’s doing what is best for him and his family. He has the basis for a huge lawsuit I would think. 
 


Just have to remember this is wrestling so he could very well win MITB. Who knows.

They've even taken him off their Make-a-Wish promos.

I noticed they didn't use the SmackDown intro sequence, which heavily features him, on last week's episode - just went right into the show. That's not necessarily out of the ordinary, and could have just been coincidence, though.

He was edited out during the previous week. They've ghosted him.

That is seriously fucked. The guy had leukemia TWICE. He is a prime candidate for complications with covid. Vince gonna Vince.

Vince is a fucking piece of shit. Would be fitting if he contracts cv19 and never recovers. All his pettiness and fucking over people. Kinda hope it happens actually.

He will be jobbing to R-Truth when he comes back.

Vince keeps making things worse for himself. 

How is he being Benoit'd if they just aired a best of special on FS1 on Tuesday?

I imagine Vince wasn't impressed with the WM 36 thing but he can't use Roman at all until the pandemic anyways. Might as well hide him and make a big surprise comeback when the virus shit is over.

Not a fan of the performer but Joe is a legit good dude. Vince going out of his way to basically erase him from the product is a dirtbag move. Will be interesting to see if they can repair their relationship or if he just wrestles out his contract and retires.

But did he REALLY have leukemia the second time?

WWE superstar Roman Reigns says he's champing at the bit to get back in the ring ... but can't take any chances with his health because he needs to "protect" his young children.

"We just had two newborn twins, twin boys," Reigns says ... "They're 8 weeks old so I had to make a decision for them."

As we previously reported, Reigns opted out of performing at Wrestlemania 36 back in April -- citing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.

"A lot of people ... they think that it was based off of my heath and the history of my fight against leukemia. Talking to my doctors and stuff, I actually am fine and my immune system is good," Reigns explained.

"The drugs that I take to fight the leukemia, they don't attack your immune system."

Reigns says the decision was "bigger than me" -- "It's my family, it's my children, they are my legacy. No matter what I do in this world, my children are gonna be the ones to represent my name and carry our name forward. So I had to make that choice for them, to protect them being so young."

The 34-year-old says he misses wrestling like crazy -- "I wanna be out there, I wanna get back to work, I wanna get back to normal but I just feel like I have an obligation not only to my family and myself but to my community."

"Also, to set the example because at the end of the day, we can do a lot of different things and say a lot of different things but its through our actions that really speaks volume. That's what I'm trying to do."

Reigns says he's not sure when he will return to the ring -- but for now, he's in full "daddy mode" ... and that's okay with him!

That sort of reads like he did it more for himself.

Still doesn’t really explain why they’re editing him out of videos 

TheBearStare -

Definitely didn’t do it for the rock.

 Vince needs to do a tribute to Roman like this:
