The WWE Universe was in a state of shock earlier this week when it was announced that Roman Reigns had been suspended.
The former WWE World Heavyweight Champion was handed a month-long ban for a Wellness Policy violation, his first during his time in the company.
Reaction to the suspension has been varied, with many fans worrying about what will happen now with regards to the brand split rather than Reigns' choice to potentially/allegedly have taken some illegal supplements. Well, now one WWE legend has spoken about Reigns' ban.

Taking to his Twitter account, former WWE superstar and total legend Mick Foley has come out and given his backing to the currently suspended star.
In the tweet, Foley said that he was pulling for Reigns to come back better and that everyone makes mistakes.
It reads: ".@WWERomanReigns - everyone stumbles, everyone falls. Focus on family. Pull yourself up. Prove the doubters wrong. I'm pulling for you."
Judging by the replies to Foley's tweet, it seems there are many who agree with the former WWF Champion.
However, Roman's reckless actions in failing the test must have angered the WWE. First of all, they made him lose clean to Seth Rollins in the middle of the ring at Money in the Bank - losing his title - then Dean Ambrose ran down to cash in the contract he won less than an hour earlier, pinning Rollins following a Dirty Deeds to become the new Champion.
Ambrose winning off Rollins means that Roman isn't the official number one contender - despite being in the triple threat match that is scheduled for Battleground next month.
Reigns ban has also thrown the upcoming draft into absolute chaos. The Big Dog won't be around for the Draft itself on July 19 as his suspension ends on July 21. The presumptive first overall pick, it is now anyone's guess as to where Reigns will be drafted now.
Also, while his ban will have ended before the Battleground PPV, the former Shield star will have had absolutely no part of the buildup to the match. So, unless the WWE decide to run a weird injury angle, they will have to try and cover the fact that Reigns isn't there.
