It has been quite the 48 hours for Roman Reigns. After something of a breakthrough moment at Sunday's TLC pay-per-view, the former Shield member finally reached the summit of the WWE (and stayed there) on Monday Night Raw as he clinched the World Heavyweight title for the first time.
With the WWE's top title now in his possession following his defeat of Sheamus, Reigns could have been forgiven for expecting praise to come his way from those who have played a part in his journey to the top.
That wasn't quite the case with Seth Rollins' tweet sent directly to Reigns in the aftermath of Raw, however. Scroll down this article to see the social media exchange between the two Superstars.

Rollins, of course, was the reigning champion before suffering a brutal knee injury during WWE's UK tour back in November. And, despite the long road ahead of him, he had a warning for his former ally:
Considering Reigns has been taking no prisoners over the past two nights of action, you might expect he wouldn't take too kindly to Rollins' comments.
The newly crowned champ, however, was doing his best to take the higher ground as he responded to Rollins:
Whilst there's plenty of mutual respect between Reigns and Rollins after what they achieved together during their early days on the WWE main roster, the friction between the two has been growing recently.
Unfortunately, with Rollins still months away from a comeback, the WWE Universe will have to bide their time before any talk of a title match between the friends-turned-foes can begin.
Still, with the WWE having finally got the title around their golden boy's waist, it wouldn't surprise us to see Reigns still at the top of the WWE when Rollins does return to in-ring action.
