Roman Reigns Leaves WWE to Fight Leukemia
The biggest active star of WWE-Roman Reigns has shared some incredibly shocking news with us. The polarizing performer released a statement on Monday night announcing his struggles with leukemia. And how he has to step away from the ring immediately to fight his disease. At the Monday Night Raw, Roman Reigns delivered a whole speech revealing his fight with leukemia. Naturally, it was a much emotional revelation for his fans who still remain thoroughly saddened by the broadcast news. But then again, the WWE star has taken the right decision to fight his battle, and is not exiting the company with all the possible prayers and luck.
Roman Reigns Reveals His Condition
The WWE universal champion shared that he was diagnosed with leukemia back in 2008 when he was only 22 years old. Although, Roman Reigns went into remission immediately, his fight against the disease never ceased. The star apologized to the crowd for not being the workhorse and fighting champion he aimed to be. And announced that he was relinquishing the title which was effective immediately.
Roman Reigns said that it was all a lie. And that he had been struggling in his fight with leukemia for 11 years now, but it was back. His disease would no longer let him fulfill his role. And since he could not be that fighting champion, he was going to relinquish the universal championship. The WWE star said that he was all ready to accept all the prayers anybody sent his way. But he did not need anybody’s sympathy or did not want people to feel bad for him because he had faith.
However, Roman Reigns made it clear that his game on Monday was not going to be his last game in the ring ever. He claimed that he was not retiring and that after his fight with leukemia, he was coming back home. And when he does, it won’t be about titles anymore. But for a purpose.
The WWE was pulled from some WWE house shows over the weekend. And fans started speculating injuries but apparently, the company was just giving his some time off.
Let’s just hope that Roman Reigns wins his fight against leukemia for he is one of the greatest stars in WWE history.
