Roman Reigns remains one of the biggest stars in the history of WWE. He has seen a level of success only a few other stars have achieved.

He has defeated the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer. He is the Undisputed Universal Champion and no one can deny that fact.

While speaking to Logan Paul on the Impaulsive podcast, Roman Reigns recalled the first time he was diagnosed with Leukemia during his brief stint in the NFL.

“Technically we weren’t quite sure, this is where we saw the blood lapse that showed the elevated white blood cells which clearly says your body is attacking something, it’s fighting off something. So they were like yeah it could be anything Venereal disease, infection, cancer and all I heard was cancer, I’m like ‘Woah,’ it got super heavy.

So I compartmentalize emotions sometimes so I think it was just so overwhelming that it wasn’t even believable and even then it was like this was back in ’07 so this was years ago. So you hear about younger people with blood cancers more often now but back then a 21-year-old come straight out of college, a division one football player supposed to be kinda peak health right? You never would expect that. So it put a huge asterisk next to my name when it came to the NFL. So it was just an uphill battle from there man.”

We are certainly glad Roman Reigns has persevered under such unfortunate circumstances. We will have to wait and see what’s next in store for Reigns
