A hilarious post managed to find its way to the front page of Reddit’s r/SquaredCircle community, highlighting how Roman Reigns has been breaking the rules of professional wrestling.
The post, which you can view in full by clicking here, was ranting on the military gear that Reigns has been wearing since his debut on the main roster as part of The Shield.
It was inspired by a funny segment which took place during the main event of Monday Night Raw, where new champion Kevin Owens chopped Reigns and sold his own hand as if the body armour had hurt his hand.

He has now started a petition on Change.org which has managed to reach over 2,000 signatures and is only a few hundred of reaching the 2,500 target.
His post read: “Roman Reigns has been systematically breaking the rules of Admiral-Lord Mountevans Unified Rules of Professional Wrestling through the use of illegal body armour to protect himself during the course of matches with legitimately dress competitors, and has been doing so throughout his career.
“We require swift action that prohibits the use of this body armour in all future WWE contests by Mr. Reigns and anyone else.”
DAMAGING THE INTEGRITY
His petition will apparently be sent to some high-profile names as well.
Vince and Stephanie McMahon will be recipients, Jack Tunney – who passed away over 10 years ago, Mick Foley, President Barack Obama, California Congressman Tony Cardenas and Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings are just some of the big names who should expect this to fall on their desk.
He went on to add: “Upon closer inspection, I have come to the conclusion that Roman Reigns has been using this vest his ENTIRE MAIN ROSTER CAREER. This is shocking and appalling, and frankly, damages the integrity of the sport.
“I demand that Commissioner Stephanie McMahon do something about this immediately, and remove this unfair advantage from Monday Night Raw.”
