It's been quite a turbulent month for WWE superstar Roman Reigns.

He lost his title at the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View and was then suspended for 30 days due to breaking the WWE Wellness Policy for failing a drugs test.

However, the month is over and the Samoan made his return to action last night during a house show, where he ran down to the ring and attacked Seth Rollins ahead of WWE Battleground on Sunday night.

Reigns is set to take on Rollins and Dean Ambrose in a triple threat match for the WWE Championship, and after serving his suspension, he's received support from two WWE favourites.

Discussing Reigns' suspension and his turbulent time of late, Edge and Christian have both discussed what the former champion should do now in order to put the past in the past.

When asked about Reigns' suspension, Christian kept his cards close to his chest and refused to open up too much about the situation, but he did admit he hopes it doesn't derail the superstar's career.

He said: “You don’t like to see stuff like that happen to anybody. Especially when they work hard.

"I don’t know what the circumstances are. I don’t want to comment on it in that respect. It’s a tough thing. You don’t want to see anybody in that situation.

"Like I said, it’s kind of a tough thing to put your finger on and you hope that it doesn’t affect him going forward. You hope that he can continue where he left off.”

Edge then weighed in on the situation and also remained fairly coy, but he advised the former champ to learn from his mistakes and move on.

“He’ll learn from it… we don’t know all of the circumstances surrounding it and probably never will. All you can do is throw guesses at it so, why bother?

"To me it’s like, ‘He’s a good kid. He’ll learn from it. He’ll own up to it and probably won’t make the same mistake again.’ I think that’s how you have to kind of deal with it.

"You see a guy like John Cena and there’s a reason he’s the face of the company. I think that’s the kind of model that the WWE is going to put out as their franchise player. That’s what you have to look to for guidelines to kind of aspire to.”

Reigns was drafted to Monday Night Raw during the live WWE Draft, being selected sixth by Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon.

The Samoan will make his in-ring return on Sunday evening when he main events WWE Battleground along with his former Shield members for the WWE Championship.
