Roman Reigns has begun treatment to battle leukaemia - when the WWE thinks he'll return

GiveMeSport | Updated: 2018-11-09 18:05:13

The WWE was thrown into disarray with the news that Roman Reigns would undergo treatment for leukaemia last month and, as a result, he would have to relinquish his Universal title.

It caused Vince McMahon to make a series of decisions with WrestleMania season just around he corner.

On top of changing Elias and Braun Strowman from heels to faces, the expected Dean Ambrose heel turn was also brought forward.

More relevant to Reigns, though, McMahon had to pick who would succeed him as the Universal champion and Brock Lesnar was McMahon's pick.

Lesnar destroyed Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel to win his second Universal title and it seems as though, despite a very public interest in returning to the UFC, WWE fans can expect to see Lesnar around until WrestleMania 35 at least.

So, where does that leave Reigns?

The 33-year-old has battled the disease before 11 years ago, quickly putting it into remission. Now, according to Dave Meltzer and the Observer, Reigns' battle has begun once more.

Reigns just started treatment for his leukemia and any talk of his returning to WWE is “a long way off,” says the Observer.

Talking after WWE Crown Jewel, former Shield brother Seth Rollins commented on how hard Reigns' battle has hit everyone behind the scenes in WWE.

“It threw everything up in the air.

“It’s hard to go a day without thinking about him and how he’s doing and hoping he’s doing alright. I’m fighting the urge to check in on him like a brother every two hours, but he’s a strong dude, and I know that he’s in a good place mentally as well as physically.”

Rollins added: “He’s in good health for the most part. I think he’s going to be able to fight this thing pretty strong.

Everyone at GiveMeSport wishes Reigns the very best of luck during his battle with the terrible disease.
