WWE Superstar Roman Reigns made his first public appearance earlier today where he was in attendance for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Georgia Bulldog college football game. Reigns showed up for the game as he has played for Georgia Tech previously.
Reigns shocked the world last month when he announced on Monday Night Raw that he has been diagnosed with Leukemia. He relinquished his Universal Championship and walked out of WWE to fight his condition.
Despite his diagnosis with Leukemia, Reigns looked great as he made a quick comment before the game started.
“I’m the real big dog here,” Reigns said. “To hell with Georgia, baby.”

Dave Meltzer, earlier noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE is using Reigns’ Leukemia angle in the the feud between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.
“We’re all gonna get what we deserve,” Ambrose said. “I mean look at Roman. For Roman’s part and what Roman did in The Shield, he has to answer to the man upstairs. But what’s worse, is you have to answer to me.”
Reigns has started his treatment to the road to recovery. At this point, it is not known how long would it take for a 100 percent recovery and there is no potential return date. However, WWE is optimistic about this complete recovery and that he would possibly return in late 2019 or early 2020.
We, here at WrestlingWorld, wish all the best for The Big Dog.
