Roman Reigns to appear on Raw this week to update fans on his battle with leukaemia

Roman Reigns

Almost four months ago, Roman Reigns walked out to the WWE crowd in Providence, Rhode Island with an unfamiliar look to him.

Wearing street clothes with a downbeat demeanour, the then-Universal Champion would go on to tell the world that he was suffering from the disease known as leukaemia for the second time in his life.

Reigns revealed that he had first suffered from the disease when he was 22 years of age but was able to battle through it and how it went into remission.

But its return meant that Reigns had to step away from the ring for his own good, as emotional scenes saw him embrace with Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins at the top of the stage.

Little has been seen or heard of Reigns since, but it has since been revealed that Reigns has been filming for a part in his cousin The Rock's new movie Hobbs & Shaw.

Former world champion boxer Joseph Parker also shared a photo with the 'Big Dog' a few months back where he seemed to be in good spirits.

And news transpired last night that Reigns will return to Raw this coming Monday from Atlanta to update the WWE Universe on his battle.

Some fans are obviously skeptical that considering WWE's failing ratings, Vince McMahon may have pleaded with Reigns to appear to try and fix those as a temporary measure which wouldn't sit right with many.

However Reigns is scheduled to be on Good Morning America the very next morning, presumably to do some promotional work on behalf of the WWE, so we can assume that it will be positive news as he clearly seems fit and well to be now making public appearances.

There's been an outpouring of support on Twitter though for Reigns' return with several fellow superstars stating their happiness to see him back.
