Roman Reigns falling-out?

Has anyone else noticed that Roman Reigns is no longer Vince's #1 guy? Reigns isn't getting pushed in the hopes of getting him over like before. What do you think is going on? Could he have had a falling-out with someone important?

Yeah, I think Rollins is still the face of WWE for now, but I reckon Reigns still gets plenty of airtime and high profile matches. I doubt there's been a falling out.

After the cancer treatment earlier in the year I'd imagine they're keeping him protected/rested rather than push him to the forefront so soon again. Plus it's a good chance to give some others a chance like Kofi had and now The Fiend.

There's been 0 falling out. I think maybe Vince just finally decided not to push Roman as hard as previously. Maybe the cancer was part of it, maybe the crowd reactions finally added up, but whatever it is Roman will remain very important, but they're keeping him away from the WWE or Universal titles for now and I appreciate that. I'm sure someday he'll be back there again, but I'd bet that they want to make sure he's ready and can handle that pressure before going back to it. Plus it gives them a chance to use other people in that spot instead.

I noticed and wondered, but if something had happened, surely the gossip blogs would've picked it up by now. Nothing stays secret in the wrestling world. I bet Reigns has a lot of other projects going.

I think Becky beat Rollins (and Reigns) to that top spot long ago. I'm not a huge fan of Roman Reigns, but I did love The Shield. What I find odd is how some fans reacted to his diagnoses. Prior to his announcement, he wasn't very popular. Then all of a sudden, people were praying for him, tweeting they wanted him to get better quickly, and creating YouTube videos wishing him a speedy recovery. And then when it actually happened, the positive reaction seemed to tip again with some fans accusing him of lying about his leukemia and faking the relapse all for PR. Basically, we want you to get well quickly, but not too quickly. I can't imagine facing that sort of scrutiny. Maybe it made him gun-shy.
