Roman Reigns' stock appears to be plummeting with every passing week.
After violating the WWE Wellness Policy and incurring a 30-day suspension, WWE chairman Vince McMahon reportedly feels very let down by his Samoan heavyweight after investing so much in his main event push.
This past episode of Monday Night Raw featured a segment called 'The Rollins Report' where superstar Seth Rollins hosted a talk show aimed at promoting the forthcoming and highly anticipated triple-threat match between all three former Shield members.

With Reigns sitting out the action at present, the brunt of promotional duties have fallen on the ever-entertaining Rollins and current WWE Champion Dean Ambrose.
However, according to NODQ.com, there appears to be more to the segment than meets the eye.
McMahon is said to still be upset with 'The Guy' for his violation and penned the segment as a rib at Reigns. Rollins took multiple shots at his former Shield partner - who he also won the WWE Tag-Team Titles with - as he conducted a fake but amusing interview with Reigns.
First of all, Reigns was forced to drop the title to Rollins at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view clean, a job that 'The Big Dog' has never had to do before.
Since then, the WWE have had no problem with highlighting Reign's error and have consistently used it as an angle on television when usually, superstars are written off TV in keeping with storylines.
Reigns really didn't need this mistake. He was floundering as a babyface champion as it was before letting down the chairman.
In part, the way he was booked and forced down the fans' throats didn't help matters, but it's been an uphill struggle for the 31-year-old.
Triple H famously had to pay some dues after the Madison Square Garden incident with the Clique, and he wasn't nearly in the same top position Reigns was prior to his mistake. How long will the Roman Empire dwindle in the dog house?
