Seth Rollins discussed Roman Reigns’ battle with leukemia during a media appearance Friday.
“Roman is doing great. He obviously spent the holidays home with his family and he’s doing really good. He’s in a good position. He’s prime to make a comeback, hopefully, sometime sooner rather than later. But at the end of the day, he’s focusing on getting healthy right now. I will say that he’s doing good,” Rollins said on Fox 2 Detroit.
Reigns announced on the October 22 episode of Raw that his leukemia had returned after being diagnosed with the disease 11 years earlier.
As a result, Reigns vacated the Universal Championship to focus on getting treatment and eventually returning to the ring.
Reigns made it clear that he intended to eventually make it back to WWE as an active competitor.
Since Reigns’ departure, Rollins has been feuding with former Shield member Dean Ambrose over the Intercontinental Championship.
Ambrose turned on Rollins on the same night Reigns made his announcement, and it has been a consistent topic of conversation on WWE programming even with Reigns currently on the sidelines.
“2018 was a great year for me. A bit of a renaissance for my career. For 2019, I’m looking to take the next step,” Rollins said.
“The Royal Rumble is coming up in Phoenix later in January and then WrestleMania in New York City coming up in March, April. Who knows. I’m looking forward to getting back to it and seeing what 2019 has in store.”
