After falling foul of the WWE's Wellness Policy, Roman Reigns is almost half way through his 30-day suspension handed out on June 21.
In the 12 days since his ban was confirmed, virtually every member of the WWE Universe seems to have had their say on who is to blame, and what it means for The Big Dog moving forward.
And now, following in the footsteps of the likes of Mick Foley and Stone Cold Steve Austin, another wrestling legend, WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase, has offered his two cents worth.

Like his peers, DiBiase isn't willing to write off Reigns just yet:
"Everybody knows there’s been some controversy recently with Roman Reigns getting a 30-day suspension," 'The Million Dollar Man' said in an interview with BBC Radio, via NoDQ.
"Everybody makes mistakes. Everybody deserves forgiveness and a second chance and certainly I think this young man does as well.”
DiBiase's comments echo those made by Austin and Foley, both of whom backed the three-time WWE champion to bounce back from his current predicament.
“From what I know of him, and I don’t know him well, but what I have seen of him and as I’ve been around him and what I’ve heard from other people, is that he’s a really great kid," DiBiase continued.
"He’s not a dope addict, he’s not addicted to anything. He’s just a kid who, you know, hey, we all have… I wrote a book about it!
"Everybody deserves a second chance and I hope that he gets his as well. I think he still has an extremely bright future in the WWE.”
'The Million Dollar Man' has become the latest in a long line of former pro wrestlers to come out and sympathise with Reigns. This, though, is in sharp contrast with a lot of WWE fans, many of whom have lambasted The Big Dog for his foolish actions.
With just over two weeks before Reigns returns for Battleground, it remains to be seen how he deals with post-suspension life.
