The relationship between Vince McMahon and Roman Reigns seems to be less rocky these days. Or at least it appears to be, based on a tweet sent out from Vince McMahon’s Twitter account.
The Twitter account for the WWE Chairman sent out the following tweet to wish The Big Dog a Happy Birthday: “Happy Birthday to three-time #WWE Champion and former Universal Champion @WWERomanReigns. His conquest of adversity both in and out of the ring has served as an inspiration and guiding light to countless people around the globe.”
This comes after several reports suggesting that McMahon was not happy about Reigns pulling out of WrestleMania just days before the show. Since that time, the announcers were instructed to not mention his name on TV and he was edited out of a WrestleMania 31 clip that aired on Raw a few weeks ago. The clip was made to look like Reigns was involved when Seth Rollins cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase.
Konnan stated during his podcast that he knows for a fact that there has been heat on WWE management because that is what he heard from people in the WWE locker room.
Reigns has gone on record via TMZ and his Instagram account that his reason for not appearing on WWE shows has more to do about his family and not due to his leukemia battle.
