As noted, WWE announced today that Roman Reigns has been suspended for 30 days for his first violation of the Wellness Program.

"I apologize to my family, friends and fans for my mistake in violating WWE's wellness policy," Reigns wrote on Twitter. "No excuses. I own it."

It was announced on last night's RAW that Reigns would be facing Seth Rollins and WWE Champion Dean Ambrose for the title at WWE Battleground on July 24 in Washington D.C. Reigns' suspension will end on July 21st, days after the WWE Draft, however several days before WWE Battleground.

Dave Meltzer reported today on a breaking news audio on that WWE knew about the violation before last Sunday's WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view. It was noted that top officials knew about the violation before the Battleground main event was announced on last night's RAW, which would indicate that WWE may still go ahead with the match as planned, even though he wouldn't be able to appear on any television before the pay-per-view.
