Roman Reigns recently spoke with SI regarding his return to the ring since announcing his remission from leukemia. Topics discussed include fan support and advice from WWE Chairman Vince Mcmahon before his leave of absence. Check out his comments below.
Vince Mcmahon's Advice:
"Now that I’m back, I’m enjoying every moment,” said Reigns. “That goes back to what Vince McMahon told me. Vince said to me, ‘Be present. He said, ‘Be there with your family and friends, and absorb everything you can. Maximize all that you can.’
Fighting Against Luekemia:
"That’s a terrifying word. Just the sound of leukemia strikes fear in people’s hearts. But knowledge is power, and that’s the biggest difference now from my first diagnosis. I have the WWE to help spread more knowledge and awareness about leukemia.The first time, I was only 22, it felt like a death sentence. This time around, it was nerve-wracking to let people know so much of my personal life, but the response and the support has given me a whole new perspective.My character can be polarizing, but everyone has dropped their opinion on Roman Reigns and supported Joe during this rough patch. That’s been a key part of my comeback."
“HOBBS & SHAW“:
"Creating with Dwayne, who is starring and producing the film, and going all-in with him felt good on so many levels,” said Reigns. “Hopefully everyone takes to it, enjoys it, and gets lost in it. DJ still lights up when we talk about my career and different bookings. There was a light in his eyes every time he was talking about my future."
