WWE star Roman Reigns started this week of Monday Night Raw by revealing to the WWE Universe. That he couldn’t be the wrestling champion that WWE required him to be as the chief titleholder on Monday night Raw because he has been fighting Leukemia for over a decade(11 years).

Roman also stated that this would not indicate his retirement, as he stated: “After I’m done shouting leukemia’s ass I’m coming back home (WWE).” He then went on to declare that the disease had returned and it would push him to step away. He said that he once again will fight it off and come back strongly and then he has to relinquish the Championship in order to do so.
