At some point in time over the past year, WWE wanted really badly to put Roman Reigns on the cover of the video game that is coming out in a couple of weeks.

Since they like to throw off fans, WWE has been teasing that Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns could be going after the tag team titles after their big victory at Summerslam.

One of the more conflicting Summerslam spoilers is the one involving Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose.

A new list has been released, and it shows which athlete has done the most for charity. To no one's surprise, John Cena was ranked #2, which is only a spot away from top ranked Cristiano Ronaldo, a famous soccer player.

The Miami Herald reached out to Roman Reigns to ask him about the attack by the fan in Vancouver. While he is okay from the incident, he stated that he did not like the fact that he could have easily been injured because someone wanted a brief moment of fame.

At one point in time, WWE had penciled in Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns as the winner of their tag team match at Summerslam. Now, however, there may be different plans.

There are quite a bit of people in the industry that are being critical of WWE and their decision to simply ban the fan that attacked Roman Reigns at a live event over the weekend.
