Roman Reigns announces he’s in remission

Roman Reigns

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.

After that, he went back to when he first revealed his leukemia had returned. He said that he’d be swinging for the fences as he worked to make his comeback. Tonight he revealed that he and the Universe had hit a home run, as he was currently in remission.

Reigns thanked the fans again for all of their support before leaving the ring. He was greeted by Seth Rollins on the ramp as the fans chanted for him.

Reigns went to Twitter after his announcement, thanking his family and everyone who helped him through the past four months.

    To back up your point, ever since the whole Bob Orton/Undertaker Hepatitis thing, WWE has been pretty strict on making sure people get regular testing for blood issues. They probably found this in Roman’s blood within weeks of it returning, if not days.

  • Keith Learmonth

    Right? Like, if they wanted to just give him 6 months off to film one scene for a movie, which is a ridiculous enough assertion to begin with, they would’ve used it to put someone over. Have McIntyre put him on the shelf, or Ambrose, or someone.

  • Keith Learmonth

    He filmed one scene for the movie. He’s been gone for almost 6 months. How long do you think it takes to film a scene for a movie?

  • Soulshroude

    The WWe’s play on a work, with something that could be life threatening… because they couldn’t actually get him over with the crowd as a FACE.

  • Soulshroude

    I get yah’… just sayin’.

  • Mike the Ike

    Hey Killswitch, you biitch, I’m going to keep calling you out, you hypocrite, until you do the right thing and lift the ip bans you put in place, you fascist bastaard.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    They also forget the fact that Roman Reigns was the Unverlasial Championship it doesn’t make sense for him to drop the title like that if it was a work.

  • Darrin Tyler

    lol you people still believe this “story”…lmao

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I think this should to me how really lost some wrestling fans really are the can’t tell the difference between real and fake anymore.

  • Luke

    My “feels” are fine, I’m just having a chuckle because all you’ve got now are middle-school attempts to patronise me because actual facts and solid arguments have long since left your armoury.

  • Well, you got me there, you’re just a gullible fanboy, I apologize my wording was incorrect. I’ll make sure to pay more attention to my calling you out from now on little buddy, don’t want to hurt your feels.

  • Luke

    …anybody apart from you, it would seem, hence your Hollywood vision of what leukemia must always be.

    I don’t believe it’s a work, because treatments for chronic leukemia do not cause hair loss, and WWE are all about their image. The damage that would be done to them if it was EVER to be revealed that this was a work is too much to even consider doing it as an angle in the first place when there are far less controversial ways to write someone off television. If you can take that consideration into your mind, that make-a-wish central known as WWE would risk people finding out they used CANCER to sell their product, and still believe this was a work, then good luck to you. But it’s an inherently illogical thing to think.

  • Luke

    No, I happen to believe this one thing. One thing is not the same as everything.

    You just called me a smark, and then suggested that I believe everything WWE tells me. I can’t be both of those things. At least be consistent.

  • And you are believing everything WWE tells you like it’s Gospel, what’s that make you?

  • You haven’t demonstrated anything lmao, anybody can use google. You aren’t gonna convince me it’s not a work, I don’t listen to morons. I’m not gonna be able to convince you it’s a work, I can’t fix stupid. All you are doing is showing your markness, but it’s ok, I know you want to live in your fantasy world. I won’t take that away from you.

  • Luke

    Lol dude you’re arguing that everything is a work while calling me a mark. That is literally what smarks do.

  • Luke

    I demonstrably know more about leukemia than you do, which is the thing we’re talking about, so…

  • That would be agreeing I was in an argument lol, I’ve been around enough to know it’s a waste of time to argue with smarks on the internet.

  • No, I’m just not gonna argue with a mark who thinks he knows what he is talking about lol.

  • The facts are either it’s a work or he’s coming back to early for his own health, guess we’ll see if he dies off in 5 years.

  • Luke

    It’s ok to admit you’ve lost the argument 😀

  • Luke

    I guess that’s ONE way of saying you have no arguments left…

  • Mark.

  • Sure, keep drinking the kool-aid you mark.

  • Luke

    And my rebuttal as per above:

    Again, you’re thinking about acute leukemia, because that’s the one usually featured in films. CHRONIC leukemia, which is what Reigns has, can indeed come and go relatively quickly. Reigns’ doctors caught it early, so they were able to deal with it quickly. The idea that WWE would use ACTUAL CANCER for an excuse to let Roman go and film a movie is just ridiculous. They could have faked any number of things to do that. They’re not about to use cancer as a work in 2019, especially when nobody in that office can keep a secret.

  • And I’ll post this again then, He took just enough time off to be in Hobbs & Shaw, plus Vince knew nobody would boo him anymore if he claimed he was dying. Not to mention it takes longer than 4 months to recover from Leukemia, if you even can at all.

  • It was too make him top babyface though, sadly it worked because everybody who attends these things are marks, and most people don’t want to think WWE wouldn’t sink that low (they don’t know WWE though).

  • what?

    I know a amish girl that had leukemia she didn’t lose her hair. She only took off work during treatments I watch this girl bail hay and straw only days after final treatment Unfortunately couple years later the cancer came back this time she lost her battle with cancer

  • CC

    Not all forms of cancer require chemo.

    Yes I am surprised he has come back from it this quick, but that to me says it was detected early enough and only needed drug treatments not full blown chemo. It is quite common in this day and age to not require chemo.

  • CC

    If he was on a drug treatment rather than chemo he would not have lost his hair.

  • Luke

    I’ll post teh same reply here as well:

    Nope.

    There are four kinds of leukemia, two of which are referred to as “acute” and the other two being “chronic”, which is the kind Roman Reigns has, hence it being on and off for eleven years.

    Roman Reigns has/had chronic leukemia, which is treated with drugs that don’t usually lead to hair loss. ACUTE leukemia is the kind of leukemia that requires aggressive courses of chemotherapy which can lead to hair loss.

    All of this information is very easy to find. Please don’t make assumptions based on the Hollywood presentation of cancer and/or leukemia. There are lots of different forms and treatments.

  • Luke

  • Sparti Love

    I would be fine if this was a work to take him the biggest heel of all time.. but if it was done to make him a big babyface then it’s pathetic.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    For real he was the Unverlasial Champion for goodness sake.

  • Soulshroude

    JOE still has his HAIR. No one going through the 6 months to a year to 2 years… ends remission with hair, CHEMO IS a HUGE part of it. OR at the very least… LOOSES A mass ton of WEIGHT.

  • Soulshroude

    Remission from Leukemia, already? Did he go through Chemo? Why is he not BALD, Hairless? What type of Leukemia does he actually have, to be in remission from? This is too short of a time for any type of Cancer Remission to take place. This is an OBVIOUS WORK.

    IF not, give me someone who is actually going through this type of Cancer… proof the doubters wrong.

    In my opinion, the FACT of the matter was that he was taking time off to film with his Cousin Dwayne. ‘Nuff said.

  • what?

    How do you figure it’s all a work?

  • This was all so obviously a work, it’s disgusting to me to see so many people buying it.
