Last night on WWE RAW, Roman Reigns (real name Leati Joseph Anoaʻi) announced he was relinquishing his WWE Universal Championship due to a battle with leukemia. Reigns was first diagnosed with the disease 11 years ago, before his WWE career began. In an emotional announcement, Reigns thanked the WWE for their support of him throughout the years.
