For a long time there, Vince McMahon was accused of not doing enough to protect his performers in the ring. Whenever an incident with a fan would take place, WWE generally did not go after the individual with their strong legal department.

After the latest incident with Roman Reigns at Night of Champions, management has now decided to add more security to live events.

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. Reigns reminded people that he was a father and a provider, so it is scary to think that it could be taken away by something so senseless.

The decision was made because he apologized for the incident. The 31 year old man stated that he only did it because other fans in the audience chanted for him to do so. He has been permanently banned from attending future events.

There are speculations floating around right now that Big Show and Roman Reigns have legitimate heat after an incident that took place during the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. Reigns delivered a punch to Show, and it looked a lot stiffer than it should. Show appeared to be legitimately upset with Reigns, and that fueled the rumors. It should be noted that Show is quite the professional and a fairly good actor when he is not doing forced comedy.
