As was just announced, Roman Reigns came out at the start of tonight’s WWE Raw and announced that he is battling leukemia. Because of this, Reigns was forced to relinquish the WWE Universal Championship.
The wrestling world took to Twitter to express their concern, and genuine emotion for the Big Dog, and one that we share here at ProWrestling.com. We wish Roman Reigns AKA Joe Anoa’i the best and our thoughts are with him and his family. See below for a compilation of the thoughts around the wrestling world including WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, DIamond Dallas Page, former superstars like X-Pac, and other current superstars paying their respects.

Roman is one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the privilege to share a locker room with. We all knew he was the locker room leader and we all aspired to be like him. Come back stronger than ever my friend #ThankYouRoman @WWERomanReigns

Weather you cheered him or booed him he cane out every time and entertained. A guy that busted his ass and worked through something that he could have gotten sympathy for but kept it out of his job and did his job. @WWERomanReigns #ThankYouRoman

To say that this is gut wrenching is an understatement. Fans may not like Roman Reigns or the way he is booked, but Joe Anoa’i gets a lot of respect from every fan. We wish him the best and hope for a speedy recovery. #RAW
