Roman Reigns hasn't been a favorite in the WWE ever since the break up of The Shield, with fans turning against him as the WWE creative team pushed him to the moon.
And it seems that ever since his suspension following a Talent Wellness policy violation, stemming from a drug test that was failed due to Adderall being found in his system, the WWE higher ups have lost faith in him as well.
According to a report from Cageside Seats, the WWE will no longer being pushing Reigns as a top superstar, for the time being at least.

"Although Raw this week made it obvious, Dave Meltzer is saying WWE is moving away from pushing Roman Reigns as a top guy "for the time being," the website's rumor roundup stated.
Reigns has now been pinned twice in his last two matches, first by Dean Ambrose at WWE Battleground which saw him lose the chance at winning his fourth title, and then by Finn Balor the following night on Raw.
That's two more clean pins than Reigns has suffered in the past year.
Vince McMahon is obviously punishing Reigns for his transgressions. This is the same man who suspended Titus O'Neil for three months for grabbing his arm when Raw wasn't even on the air. Of course he isn't going to let Reigns get away with just a one month ban.
However, this could actually be really good for Reigns. He badly needs to spend time away from the main event scene after far too much over-saturation. Giving him month long feuds with the likes of Cesaro, Chris Jericho and others could be exactly what he needs.
Who knows, maybe he'll finally get the heel turn he desperately needs. One can only dream.
