WWE Hall of Famer Edge was forced to retire from professional wrestling in 2011 due to a life-threatening injury. The 11-time WWE Champion had to officially relinquish the World Heavyweight Championship and proudly retired as World Champion in the process.

Edge’s sudden “exit” isn’t quite different from that of Roman Reigns for The Big Dog relinquished his hard-earned WWE Universal Championship this past September to take a hiatus in order to begin his treatment for Leukemia.

Although Reigns had particularly said that his sudden departure wasn’t supposed to mean a retirement by any means, at this point, it doesn’t seem like he will be able to return to the ring anytime soon.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, The Rated-R Superstar claimed that Reigns’ case is far more serious than his was as it’s a grave matter of ‘life or death.’

“I had to retire due to injury, but in this case, we’re talking life or death. This is Leukemia, a thing you don’t expect to hear from a guy who is in the prime of his career and looks like a superhero. The first thing I felt when I heard the news was sad, but I don’t think Roman wants people to feel that way.”

 

“I feel for him, but the best thing he can do is surround himself with his family, and that’s what he’s doing. As long as he gets healthy, who cares if he ever wrestles again? I watched him on Raw and thought that moment had to be really, really difficult, but he handled it with poise and class.”

Reigns won’t compete at WrestleMania 35 and his status for WrestleMania 36 doesn’t seem to be any different at this point. Even if the former Universal Champion recovers before WrestleMania 36, he would have a hard time getting medically cleared by WWE doctors.

WrestlingWorld wishes Roman Reigns a speedy recovery and hopes to see him back in his yard at the earliest.
