WWE News: Braun Strowman reacts to Roman Reigns recent revelation
- Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns are close friends outside of WWE
What's the story?
Roman Reigns revealed this week on Monday Night Raw that he had been fighting a battle of his own outside of the squared circle and that his 11 year battle with Leukemia had reached the point where he would be forced to step away from the ring.
In case you didn't know...
Roman Reigns overcame leukemia when he was younger and has been able to keep the illness at bay over the past decade which is how he has been able to climb the ranks in WWE, and never made his struggle public knowledge.
Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns have had a number of collisions in the ring, but have become the best of friends in real life and were even spotted traveling together last year when the duo was feuding on WWE TV.
The heart of the matter
Strowman was present on Monday Night Raw and noted that Reigns would be handed the first shot at his Championship if he defeats Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel next weekend, but it appears that Strowman didn't stop there as he also paid tribute to his friend on Instagram.
Strowman and Reigns were scheduled to be part of the Universal Championship match alongside Lesnar at Crown Jewel and the duo have been feuding over the past few months alongside Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Drew McIntyre, and Dolph Ziggler. Strowman and Reigns may have been the greatest enemies on-screen over the past few years, but as stated above even Reigns biggest adversary wants him to win the biggest fight of his life.
As already stated everyone at Sportskeeda wishes Roman Reigns the best of luck in his fight and we hope to be writing about his return in the coming months.Published 23 Oct 2018, 08:17 IST
