Roman Reigns discusses his leukemia battle

Roman Reigns won the WWE Championship three times, once the Universal Championship, once the Intercontinental Championship, once the United States Championship and once the Raw Tag Team Championship (with Seth Rollins), proving to be the seventeenth wrestler in the story to complete the Grand Slam (new format); he also won the 2015 edition of the Royal Rumble, which allowed him to participate in the final meeting of WrestleMania 31.

Upon winning the Intercontinental Championship, he became the twenty-eighth Triple Crown Champion and the seventeenth Grand Slam Champion. Additionally, Reigns was ranked number one in Pro Wrestling Illustrated's annual PWI 500 list of the top 500 singles wrestlers in 2016.

Speaking with FOX 35, he discussed his leukemia battle: “I think it’s important, you know, to practice social distancing, I think it’s very important to take this thing seriously. But if you have any concerns, if you are newly-diagnosed or you’re an existing patient, to not be scared to tap into a resource like the LLS.

You know, they are just a wealth of knowledge, and that is the most important thing right now is getting information that you can count on. Proper information from experts that have been doing this a long time. And the LLS is spoken for, they’ve been around for a very long time.

They’ve advance research, and they’ve just put so many efforts into funding and helping out on financial assistance, and no one can tell you better than Dr. Lou himself of the great work LLS has done. I think that’s important for people to know, that it doesn’t have to be a death sentence.

You can continue to live your life, chase your dreams and fulfill goals. And that’s what I’ve been able to do with proper treatment and the right support”.
