Roman Reigns, WWE star, announces cancer is in remission as he makes return

Roman Reigns, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar, has announced his return to the rings after the remission of his leukemia that forced him out of the ring close to four months ago.

The 33-year-old made his first appearance on Monday Night Raw to give his fans an update on his real-life battle with leukemia and it was fantastic news.

"I said I was going to swing for the fences. We did better than that, y'all. We didn't just swing for the fences," Reigns said.

"The good news is, I'm in remission, y'all. So with that being said, the Big Dog is back!" Reigns said much to the jubilation of wrestling fans in attendance.

The two then stepped out the ring, looked back at Ambrose, sparking the rekindling of the Shield trio.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Roman Reigns is set to return to the rings few months after being diagnosed with life threatening disease leukemia.

The 33-year-old announced on Monday Night Raw in October that he would be relinquishing the Universal Title after his diagnosis.

SunSport however reports that WWE owner Vince McMahon has confirmed the star will be returning to the company's flagship show next week.
