Time to hunt again. Back in October, Roman Reigns was forced to vacate the Universal Title and walk away from the ring, at least for a little while, due to a recurrence of leukemia. There was no word on when he would be coming back to the ring and that is still the case at the moment. However, we might be on the verge of getting a major update, due to a surprise announcement.
As announced on WWE.com, Reigns will be appearing on next week’s Monday Night Raw to provide an update on his condition. There is currently no word on what this will mean, though it should also be noted that Reigns will be on Good Morning America on Tuesday. Reigns has not wrestled since the October 15, 2018 episode of Monday Night Raw in a six man tag.

It wasn’t a great time. Check out Reigns’ speech vacating the title:
Opinion: Well that’s rather encouraging. I don’t know what Reigns is going to say and there’s every chance that there is no major update and he’s just there to pop a rating for WrestleMania season. At the same time though, hopefully he has some more firm dates for us as just being back around the ring is a good sign. I know Reigns wasn’t the most popular guy in the world, but this is a different kind of story and something that hopefully leads somewhere better.
