Roman Reigns returning so soon after leukemia remission was his decision

Roman Reigns announced during WWE RAW this week that his leukemia is in remission and that he is back. He returned later on in the night and teamed up with Seth Rollins to save Dean Ambrose, teasing a Shield reunion. While this happened very quickly, it is what Roman wanted.

Fightful reports that Roman Reigns returning so quickly after his remission was completely his decision. Vince McMahon was also the first one to learn that Roman’s leukemia is in remission.

This news came early last week and that is why Vince McMahon made the announcement on Friday of Roman’s return to RAW.

His return was kept under wraps and only a few people knew of this. This includes Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, Kevin Dunn, and Michelle Wilson as they were given details about what would be happening on RAW this morning.

    So there you have it. Wrestling fans are not just promoters, wrestlers, agents and everything else and now they are doctors.

  • what?

    Yeah they had him on good morning America with a host that battled the same kind of cancer so wwe can get Roman over with the fans.. Highly doubtful

  • It’s a work you marks.

    I’d rather be a gully-calf, than a gullible.

    Cop-out. Leukemia is a very specific Cancer… notice neither he nor the WWe specified which type he has. There are so many holes to his (Joe’s) story as worked by the WWe. Just remember… the movie Heavy Metal: “I”ve got an… ANGLE…” (pun intended..)

    Hey, good for him. I’m glad he’s doing well, and feeling ready to get back to it. I just hope he doesn’t push himself too hard too fast.
