According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Roman Reigns has now begun his treatment for leukemia. The news came shortly after Roman Reigns had relinquished his title due to health reasons.
Update from Roman’s Cousin
Roman’s cousin, Lance Anoa’i has released a statement regarding his cousin’s fight against leukemia. While he mentioned he could not disclose a time frame for his cousin’s return to the ring, he did disclose the family would like to see his return sooner than later.
“We have no idea on a time frame yet [for his WWE return] but we hope it is sooner than later!” – Lance Anoa’i
During the interview with Wrestling Inc, Lance mentioned the Anoa’i family encountered more bad news over the past couple of months. He mentioned his father Samu – who used to wrestle as a part of the Headshrinkers – was diagnosed with liver cancer. Understandably, this is a difficult time for the Anoa’i family.
