In the wake of Roman Reigns’ stunning announcement that he has been living with leukemia for 11 years and that the disease’s return would force him to relinquish the Universal Championship, an outpouring of messages from past and present WWE Superstars and employees alike were sent out on social media to offer support to “The Big Dog.”
‘Courage – strength in the face of pain or grief.’ You have given us your everything including a courageously vulnerable moment. We, your WWE family, give you all of our love and support. #ThankYouRoman #NeverGiveUp
