Roman Reigns announcing his comeback

The former football player turned Pro wrestler has confirmed that his Leukemia is on remission and he would be coming back to reclaim his yard at Monday Night Raw. “The Good news is, I’m in remission, y’all. So with that being said, the Big Dog is back!” Reigns announced this on Monday Night Raw before linking up with his Shield brother to take down the newly found trio of Drew, Bobby and Corbin. And in the process saving their rogue brother Dean Ambrose.


Reigns who is now 33 years old, has been living with cancer ever since he was 22 years old, and the disease returned last year. He had to relinquish his WWE Universal Championship to fight the disease. However he has really thanked the WWE fraternity and his fans for the support they showed him during his dark moments. The former champion said in this in an emotional speech, “That overwhelming support that you gave me, it gave me strength, it gave me new life. It gave me a new opportunity and it gave me a new purpose.”
