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!”
Read below for additional tweets from the roster, as well as other wrestlers.

Our job gives us the ability to portray larger than life characters who possess super human qualities and characteristics.
After hearing his story it's very apparent that Joe Anoa'i is just as much of a superhero as "Roman Reigns" is.#ThankYouRoman

Roman Reigns exemplifies everything I believe a true leader should be.
Proud to have shared a locker room with him, and I’ll be proud to share it with him again after he wins this battle.#ThankYouRoman
