To kickoff Raw tonight, Roman Reigns announced that he has leukemia, and will relinquish the WWE Universal Championship.
Reigns said “My name isn’t Roman; My name is Joe, and I’ve been living with leukemia for 11 years, and unfortunately it’s back. This is not a retirement, but I am going home to focus on my health, and family, and I hope to be back soon.”.
In tears, Roman started walking up the ramp to the back, and was met by his brothers in Shield. All three men were in tears as they hugged. The trio held out their hands as they did the Shield pose.
I would like to give a special shout out to my friend, and fellow WWE enthusiast, Kelli Baker for all the information and breaking news!
