Roman Reigns had to depart the WWE last October in order to deal with a second bout of leukemia.
He relinquished the Universal title in the process, but now Dave Meltzer believes his leukemia is “not a deadly form” and “with that form he would be wrestling soon”.
In the past couple of days it has been revealed that Reigns will star in the new Hobbs and Shaw movie alongside WWE legend The Rock.
Reigns will play Rock’s brother in the Fast and Furious spinoff and they are, of course, real-life cousins.
The fact that Reigns has been able to film a movie during his recovery period is either very encouraging from one perspective or a tad suspicious from another.
Nobody seems to be suggesting that his illness has been a work of any kind and he has definitely had it before, so cynics need not worry.
However, Meltzer is said to have spoken to doctors – not Reigns’ actual doctors – for research of the situation and they see to think his return to the ring will be in the very near future.
Chances are, the WWE will leave the Big Dog off WrestleMania even if he was ready because they have started to map out the top of that card now.
Seth Rollins won the Men’s Royal Rumble event and seems on a collision course with Brock Lesnar while Becky Lynch – winner of the Women’s Royal Rumble – is almost certain to face Ronda Rousey.
Either way, it’s great to hear that Reigns is doing well.
