Roman Reigns Lays Down WWE Title Due to Leukaemia

Roman Reigns Lay Down WWE Title Due to Leukaemia

It’s indeed a tough time for American wrestler, as he laid down his Universal Championship title due to prolonged leukemia.

Roman Reigns revealed to his fans on Monday Oct. 22 he has been diagonised with the disease since about 11 years ago but was in remission.

Reigns said the leukaemia has returned which means he can no longer “be that fighting champion” which made him give up his title.

Fans sent messages of support on social media and the hashtag #ThankYouRoman has been trending on Twitter.

Roman, a former American football player, made the announcement in the ring at Monday Night Raw.

“Y’all have made my dreams come true,” the 33-year-old said addressing the crowd.

“It didn’t matter if you cheered me or you booed me, you’ve always reacted to me and that’s the most important thing and for that I have to say thank you so much.”

Roman, real name Joe Anoa’i, told fans he wanted to make it clear that his announcement wasn’t a “retirement speech” and revealed once he recovers he is “coming back home”.

“When I do it’s not going to be just about titles or being on top. It’s about a purpose.”

He added: “I will beat this and I will be back so you will see me very, very soon.”

After his emotional address, he was given a hug by Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, his partners from The Shield wrestling group.

Fans and other wrestling stars sent messages of support on Twitter.
