Roman Reigns was suspended by the WWE in June for violating the company’s talent wellness policy, but that’s not what has gotten a bunch of wrestling fans riled up.

The WWE Superstar, whose real name is Joe Anoaʻi, is known for wearing signature body armor in the form of a reinforced vest that many followers think is conducive to cheating.

A Change.org petition launched Tuesday is now campaigning to slap another ban on Reigns and his “illegal” gear.

“Roman Reigns has been systematically breaking the rules of Admiral-Lord Mountevans Unified Rules of Professional Wrestling through the use of illegal body armor to protect himself during the course of matches with legitimately dressed competitors, and has been doing so throughout his career,” the petition claims.

“We require swift action that prohibits the use of this body armor in all future WWE contests by Mr. Reigns and anyone else.”

The petition, which was started by Mick Huck, will apparently be sent to Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Jack Tunney, Mick Foley, President Barack Obama, California Rep. Tony Cardenas and Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings.
