  • WWE’s Roman Reigns Reveals Battle With Leukemia; Relinquishes Universal Title

On the October 22 episode of WWE's flagship series, Raw, Universal Champion Roman Reigns shocked the world by announcing he has leukemia, that he's vacating the title, and leaving to heal.

Reigns told the crowd on WWE Raw on Monday night that he had been battling leukemia for 11 years, and that unfortunately it had returned.

Anoa'i was scheduled to perform in a three-way match against Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman in a headlining match at the WWE's "Crown Jewel" show November 2, which had been scheduled to take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; WWE announced later in Monday's broadcast that Strowman and Lesnar would go one-on-one at "Crown Jewel" to determine a new champion.

"Because the leukemia is back, I can not fulfill my role".

Despite the announcement, Reigns made it clear that he doesn't want to treat this as a retirement. And I've been living with leukemia for 11 years. You've always reacted and that's the most important thing, and for that, I have to say thank you so much. I'm not going to lie, I'll take every prayer you send me, but I'm not looking for sympathy.

This development has stunned the entire WWE universe. But I'm not gonna lie, that was the hardest time in my life.

Reigns, who has been in remission since late 2008, ended his annoucement by relinqueshing his WWE title and embracing his fellow Shield members, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, before heading backstage. He had no money, no home, and a new baby. And football was done with me.

"You wanna know who gave me a chance?" He paid gratitude to WWE for taking a chance on him and allowing his dreams to come true.
