WWE star shocks fans with devastating cancer news

FilmMagic

"And because the leukaemia is back, I cannot fulfil my role, I can't be that fighting champion [I said I would be]", Anoa'i announced live to fans. The crowd was noticeably distraught and shocked over the news, but gave him a huge round of applause when he thanked them for their support over the years. When I was 22-years-old I was diagnosed with this, and very quickly, I was able to put it in remission.

Roman Reigns, WWE's biggest active star and certainly its most polarizing performer, announced in a shocking statement Monday night that his real-life battle with leukemia will force him to step away from the ring effective immediately.

The former Universal Champions said that by no means is he retiring, and he plans to return to WWE when he's done kicking leukemia's ass, but for now he's going home to focus on his family.

Anoa'i, 33, played college football for Georgia Tech and attempted to play for both the Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars. But I'm not going to lie, that was the hardest time of my life. However, he was cut by both teams before the season ever began and never played a snap in an National Football League game.

WWE superstar Roman Reigns has revealed he is battling leukemia.
