WWE Stars Reacts to Roman Reigns Making Battle with Leukemia Public

roman reigns reactions wwe roster leukemia battle leave of absence

Roman Reigns received an outpour of support from his co-workers on social media after announcing that he’d be taking a leave of absence due to leukemia. 

As we previously reported … Reigns announced at the top of Raw that he’d been in remission from leukemia for the past 11 years, but it’s unfortunately returned. Because of this, Roman is relinquishing the Universal Championship to go home and fight it off once again.

WWE talent immediately began tweeting words of encouragement to Roman.

Kevin Owens wrote, “Roman is one of the best I’ve ever been in the ring with and one of the guys I respect and look up to the most in this industry. My thoughts are with him and his family. I can’t wait to see him overcome this and get to share a locker room with him again soon.”

The Usos said, “We been here for u, and will stay here for u. Day one uce. We love you.”

WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair also gave Roman encouragement by tweeting: “My family And I are thinking of you and are keeping you in our prayers! We are here for you!”

    IF I DIDN’T KNOW ANY BETTER I’D SAY IT WAS A WORK BECAUSE OF THE TIMING OF IT. THINK ABOUT IT. WITH SO MANY HATING ON ROMAN WITH THE CROWN JEWEL PPV UP IN THE AIR. AND SO MANY SUPERSTARS NOT WANTING TO GO. THIS BRINGS EVERYONE TOGETHER ON THE SAME PAGE AT THE RIGHT TIME AND MAKES ROMAN THE HERO WITH EVERYONE LIKE VINCE WANTS. A WIN WIN SITUATION FOR VINCE AND HIS HUGE MONEY MAKING DEAL WITH SAUDI ARABIA. GENIUS VINCE IF THIS IS A WORK YOU COOKED UP. GOT EVERYONE GOING JUST LIKE HE DID WITH THE DEAN AMBROSE SUDDEN HEEL TURN. NO EXPECTED IT. NO ON SAW IT COMING 100 MILES AWAY,
