Roman Reigns opened this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW with the shocking announcement of being diagnosed with the returning Leukemia. Reigns was first diagnosed with Leukemia when he was 22 and managed to quickly remit the same, but after 11 years, the Leukemia has now returned which thus forced him to relinquish the Universal Championship.

During an interview with “Conversations with Maria Menounos”, “The Boss” Sasha Banks confirmed that the locker room didn’t know anything about Reigns’ leukemia diagnosis until The Big Dog revealed it on RAW.

“I didn’t know,” Banks said. “I don’t want to cry because he’s very special. I’m still shaken by that news.”


Banks continued, “He is the strongest, most amazing man I’ve ever met. He taught me so much since I’ve been on Raw. To know that he’s been battling with this and didn’t tell a soul…he’s a leader. Everyone looks up to him. There’s no bad word that anyone can say about him because he is the hardest working person that I ever met.”

As it appears, even the announcers (Michael Cole, Renee Young and Corey Graves) didn’t know about Reigns’ Leukemia diagnosis as they opened the show by discussing storylines. Their genuine reaction after Reigns’ revelation also confirms this theory.

However, it’s evident that the WWE Management was likely aware of Reign’s health condition on Friday as it was at that time when the immediate ex-Universal Champion pulled out of the weekend house shows. Also, the decision to turn Braun Strowman was made on Sunday as The Monster was an absolute babyface at the WWE Live Event in Boston.

The vacant WWE Universal Championship will have a winner on November 2, 2018 at Crown Jewel when former champion Brock Lesnar goes 1-on-1 with Strowman.
