Roman Reigns drops Universal Title after Leukemia returns

Roman Reigns opened Monday Night Raw tonight. The Universal Champion came out in street clothes instead of his usual attire and dropped a bombshell on the WWE Universe.

Reigns revealed to the WWE Universe that at the age of 22, he was diagnosed with Leukemia. Reigns said it was the hardest battle of his life, and sadly, at the age of 33, it has returned.

Reigns then thanked the WWE and the WWE Universe for the past six years and told the fans that, whether they cheered or booed him, he loved every single one of them. He told the WWE Universe that this is in no way a retirement speech, and plans on recapturing the Universal Championship once he returns.

Reigns then left the Universal Championship in the middle of the ring, relinquishing it, before walking back up the ramp. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose then came out to hug their brother one more time.

    I am the same way. I don’t even want to say it because I hope he beats it and now I understand why Vince love him so much. But WWE wise business has just pick up with all due respect.

    I don’t like how he’s been literally shoved down fans’ throats, with four straight WM main events in a row, etc. But no, he doesn’t deserve to be sick, or possibly die. I wouldn’t miss seeing him on TV so much, but I also hope he gets better. That family has already lost too many people young.

    I wish him the best and a speedy recovery. On the other side, we can all thank Vince for the three years of bs on trying to get him over. The only highlight from this horrible situation is when Reigns returns he will definitely be more than over.

    I have no love for the guy as a wrestler, but nobody deserves this. He is not a bad guy in real life, and I hope anti-Roman fans can put aside their hatred for the character and give him their support.

    Wow God Bless him hope he gets well soon.

  • what?

    And now comes all the cruel comments
