It’s always good to have an expert’s opinion. Earlier this week on Monday Night Raw, Roman Reigns made his long awaited return after announcing that he was suffering from leukemia. To say his return was well received is an understatement but it also came with some questions. Some fans weren’t sure how Reigns could look as healthy as he did so fast, with some wondering if he was ever sick in the first place. Now, we have some clarifications.
A group called Leukemia Care, a charity based in the United Kingdom, took to Twitter to answer some questions and explain a thing or two about Reigns’ return. In a thread of responses, the group explained that Reigns very well could have received treatment and been in the shape he was in on Monday Night Raw. The main points made are that we don’t know what kind of leukemia Reigns had and it is very possible to not lose muscle mass or hair in the course of treatment.
Here are the tweets from the group (there’s some interesting information in here):
Morning! In response to some of the tweets we're seeing online about @WWE and @WWERomanReigns we wanted to have a little chat about leukaemia/leukemia, relapse and perceptions of cancer. #WWE @davemeltzerWON https://t.co/iIXgrBKKz3.A.THREAD! pic.twitter.com/thhKt17gTZ

The moment you were waiting for. Check out Reigns’ return on Monday night:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that people need to see. Fans tend to like to diagnose things themselves, but sometimes in wrestling you hear what’s really going on. I have no idea what’s going on with Reigns, but it’s great to see him back and hopefully healthy. It’s a great story and hopefully it can raise some awareness to fight this disease. Reigns can do a lot of good and it seems that he wants to.
