Roman Reigns opened tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw with some incredible news. The Big Dog, after taking in the crowd and greeting everyone ringside, revealed that his leukemia was in remission.
Reigns started his message to the WWE Universe by thanking them, both the ones who cheered him and the ones that didn’t, for all their well wishes and prayers over the past few months. He said that he found new motivation to step inside the ring. While superstars are here to make their mark and win championships, and that’s what he’s here to do, his main mission is here to spread awareness for cancer.
