Roman Reigns Is Returning To Raw On Monday With A Health Update


Back in October, Roman Reigns stunned the wrestling world when he relinquished the Universal Championship, revealed that he’d been battling leukemia for the past eleven years, and announced that he’d be stepping away from WWE to, presumably, Superman punch and spear the disease back into remission. The WWE Universe had his back, and aside from a few notes like his role in the upcoming Fast and Furious spin-off Hobbs and Shaw, we haven’t heard many updates.

That changes this Monday, as WWE announced via social media that Roman — or Joe Anoa’i, more specifically — will be returning to Raw to let us know how he’s doing.

The only additional information from comes in the form of a preview blurb:

On Monday, The Big Dog returns to provide an update on his treatment, live in Atlanta. What will Reigns have to say to the WWE Universe, more than four months after his last appearance on the red brand?

We’re really hoping to follow this up with a Monday breakout about how Joe is healthy and feeling strong again, and can provide some kind of ETA about his return to a WWE ring. No matter how you’ve felt about Roman Reigns as a character or performer, his comeback is sure to be one of the best feel-good stories of the year. And if he’s not ready to say those things yet, we know for sure it’ll happen soon. Best wishes to Joe and Roman Reigns.
