WWE star Roman Reigns had announced a few months back, that he will have to give away his title and leave the ring as he was suffering from leukaemia. However, Roman was at the ring recently and boy did he make a big announcement. The 33-year-old updated his fans on his health status as they cheered for him. Reigns said that his leukaemia is now in remission and he told the fans: “We didn’t just swing for the fences… we hit a home run!”
When Reigns, whose real name is Joe Anoa’I, made the announcement, his fans could be heard chanting ‘Welcome back! Welcome back!’ The wrestler thanked his fans and slapped hands with some of the other stars and celebrities present at the show. "So when I tell you this, I'm so grateful and so humbled and so honoured to announce this," Reigns began. "The good news is, I'm in remission, y'all. So with that being said, the Big Dog is back!" said Reigns to thunderous applause.
According to CBS Sports, Reigns was initially diagnosed with leukaemia in 2008 when he was 22. He had gone into remission but he still had to battle the disease. Reigns had made the announcement to the world in October 2018. He was often seen in public since, though he didn’t show up on WWE. He did, however, film a cameo role for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
Reigns quickly found himself on the ring with Seth Rollins that night. Their former Shield-mate Dean Ambrose was facing a four-man threat. Reigns threw in a spear and a couple of punches before walking off with Rollins. They did turn back at Ambrose, probably to tease fans for a later event.
