WWE Monday Night Raw got turned upside down on last week’s episode. None other than Roman Reigns came up with an announcement to shock the world. He confirmed his battle leukemia since 22 years of age. 11 years later it is back and he will have to start fighting it again from now on. As a result, he has to relinquish the Universal Championship on WWE Raw.
The pro-wrestling world left baffled as the news went viral. Roman Reigns was the current franchise player of the WWE. This is the biggest pro-wrestling promotion in the world. Hence, it’s nothing wrong to say he was residing at the top of the pinnacle of sports entertainment. It’s hard to think pro-wrestling business without the most coveted wrestler of this generation.
Even his colleagues were not aware of this decision until the announcement came. As surprising as it sounds but nobody had any clue until it happened on TV. PWtorch came up with this strange news about WWE wrestlers being unaware if the situation. Nobody knew about the leukemia diagnosis before Roman announced it in the middle of the ring.
The source also confirmed that even the creative team and the writers were completely blind about this. The two head honchos, Vince McMahon and Triple H might be the two only men who arranged this promo segment. Plus, there are chances that only a few friends of Roman Reigns circle knew about this. Others were not tipped off at all with this head-turner.
Here are further reports on this from stillrealtous.com,
“It’s being said that when Roman made the announcement, everyone just stopped what they were doing backstage. Reigns is well liked behind the scenes, and because of his work ethic many were surprised when he missed live events over the weekend with no explanation.”
Reports were indeed out about an injury regarding Roman Reigns. He is not someone to miss any show without a proper reason. So when WWE pulled him off from last weekend’s shows, the wrestling community started buzzing about his injury. Some of the sources already started spreading that his presence in Crown Jewel is in jeopardy.
They could barely predict that a bombshell was waiting on WWE Raw. As for now, Roman Reigns is up for a fight against cancer in order to come back to a WWE ring. Sources close to him confirmed that he is stronger than ever in these circumstances. “He seems to feel very confident he’ll beat this.” We send our thoughts and prayers to his family as they go through this battle.
