WWE superstar Roman Reigns had many fights in the square, but apparently one of his biggest fights took place outside the ring. Reigns broke on [[moonnightRaw) character and turned to the crowd with his real name, Joe, to reveal that he had been suffering from leukemia for years, about which nothing was known yet. The appearance of the superstar was associated with news that he had to give up his Universal Championship belt. Take a look at the below:
As mentioned earlier, Roman Reigns' leukemia fights have not been known to wrestling fans until then. Before the announcement rumors had spread that Reigns was physically injured and would not attend the upcoming Crown Jewel event. It is safe to say that the announcement that viewers expected in relation to these messages was not as serious as what Reigns actually said.
The mass reaction was far different from the usual reactions of Roman Reigns on Monday Night Raw . Reigns has a lot of fans cheering on him and almost as many who will stir him up because WWE has boosted the wrestler's career over previous fan superstars of the past few years. Fortunately, the crowd was usually respectful and empathetic during the emotional announcement, and many supported Reigns in one that is certainly a hard time.
Roman Reigns ended his speech and left the ring only to be accompanied by his colleagues Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. The trio came to WWE in 2012 with three-man tag team The Shield, where it had a very successful run for two years. The group had recently been revived to fan applause. None of the three men could hold back their tears, and they closed things with their fists, signaling their brotherhood.
Roman Reigns showed, surprisingly, that he had leukemia at the age of 22, which would mean that his diagnosis was made sometime around 2007. Reigns, whose real name is Leati Joseph Ano, tried at the time in the NFL enter. He had signed with the Minnesota Vikings and the Jacksonville Jaguars, but was separated from both teams before the start of the season. Later, he spent five years in the CFL before retiring completely from professional football.
Two years later, the football career was over, Vince McMahon and the WWE used the athlete and signed him to a WWE development contract. Fast to the year 2018, where Roman Reigns was one of the leading stars of the brand and the ninth Grand Slam champion of the company. It is obviously time for him to achieve much more than that, and Reigns promised that his speech was not retirement declaration, saying that one day he would return if he is healthier.
