During WWE’s Universal Championship on RAW Monday night, Roman Reigns announced that he has been battling leukemia for the past 11 years, since 2008 and it is now back. Reigns said he will be setting away from the ring to focus on his health.
In the WWE press release, it was said that Reign chose to make his battle public in an effort to raise awareness and funds for the research in curing the disease.
Roman came to Greenville with the WWE about 2 years ago, and that was the first time I had seen wrestling or Roman. That night, I walked away a true fan of his. Plus he was fine as hell! hahaha! Sending nothing but prayers and love his way! Can’t wait to see you back in the ring!
Thank you to everyone who’s reached out…I can’t put into words what it means to me.
Your energy and positivity motivate me to get better quickly to get back in the ring, but for now I’m going to spend time with my family and focus on health.
Thank you – Joe/Roman
