When the Minnesota Vikings announced that they were building a new state of the art stadium, the assumption was that they would eventually get a Wrestlemania some day.

The man that attacked Roman Reigns at a live event over the weekend is getting off a whole lot easier than he should. WWE opted to drop the charges against him after he was arrested.

He has been permanently banned from attending future events.
