“So, yeah, like the old saying, man, go and flip that cover over and read a few pages, get into a few chapters before you go running your mouth and just take this time to better yourself.”
WWE let Roman Reigns go home and Triple H made it clear that when Reigns returned, he would not lose his spot.
