During the week, WWE dropped a big announcement when they revealed Roman Reigns would be returning to Monday Night Raw this week to update fans on his leukaemia treatment.
Reigns hasn't been seen in the WWE since he announced last October during an episode of Raw that he was suffering from leukaemia and would need to take some time away from the ring in order to receive treatment.
Since WWE made the announcement that The Big Dog was coming back on Raw for the first time in months, fans have been wondering when he will return to the ring for a match.
Initially, during an Instagram post, the former Universal Champion's personal trainer, David Gonyea, stated that he and his gym 'provided a great space to help him prepare for his in-ring return'.
Many fans took this as Reigns will be announcing his return to the ring this Monday, but Gonyea has since cleared this up in the comments section of his post, via NoDQ.
Still out for a few months
In response to one fan asking about the legitimacy of Reigns' illness, he said: "Nah man he’s still recovering.
"He won’t be in action for another few months…keep in mind what leukemia is… and that he has been in remission this was a flare-up that he needed treatment for.
"I was working out with him and he was definitely moving slow. It’s the PG era they aren’t working cancer."
He later added: "He is getting better. Not 100% yet but he’s getting better and will be back."
Gonyea also said: "Since he left he’s been preparing to come back. Monday he will let you know how close he is."
The Big Dog
It sounds like The Big Dog is still a couple of more months away from having a match again in the WWE. Fingers crossed it happens at some point in 2019, but only when he is ready. His health must come first before the fans.
The fact he had to relinquish the Universal Championship before taking time off could mean he plays a part in the current storyline for the title between current champion Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins.
Better yet, many fans will be hoping Reigns makes another appearance with Rollins and Dean Ambrose for a final iconic Shield fist bump before The Lunatic Fringe leaves the company later this year.
Whatever Reigns says on Monday Night Raw, WWE fans are going to give him a fantastic reaction when he walks through the curtain and down to the ring for the first time in months.News Now - Sport News
