Roman Reigns stunned the entire WWE Universe when it was announced that he was suspended by the WWE for a violation of the Wellness Policy.
The former World Heavyweight Champion was apparently pinned by Seth Rollins from the direct orders of Vince McMahon, with the WWE already knowing about the failed test, as an extra punishment on top of his 30-day ban.
Well, in the days following the suspension, several WWE stars of past and present have come out to lend their support to Reigns. The latest one to do that is Chris Jericho.

During the most recent edition of the Talk is Jericho podcast, Y2J offered his thoughts on the Reigns suspension, saying that he expects 'The Big Dog' to fully bounce back from his ban.
Jericho seemed to hint that the substance Reigns took to make him pop the test was something incredibly obscure, that other sports don't test for.
"Reigns is a great guy and a great worker," he started off as saying. "That he was suspended shows there is no BS or (messing) around when it comes to the policy. There are things on (the banned list) that are not anywhere but on the WWE list."
"You see the things that happened 10, 15 years in the past that don't happen anymore. You don't see guys dying young," Jericho added.
Jericho is pretty good friends with Reigns - as can be judged by their 'Back of the Bus' crew they have going with Dean Ambrose and Jimmy and Jey Uso. It seems very likely that Chris is sticking up for someone he is close with and trying to make it seem like his ban wasn't a major thing.
"Reigns is a cool cat. He'll own it, come back and be a bigger star in the future. I'm a huge Reigns fan and continue to be."
Yep, that pretty much confirms it.
