Roman Reigns Talks His Time In The NFL And Overcoming Leukemia

Current WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns joined Clay on OutKick on Friday morning to discuss his career and overcoming leukemia.

“It was a bit of a rollercoaster ride, you know. Very scary, especially to disclose this kind of information to essentially the world. We broadcast to a global audience. And I’m sure, as you know with social media and the connectivity of the internet, it can sometimes be a very toxic place, and people can say things that they don’t necessarily mean. They just want to kind of get a rise out of people or get a like, or get a comment and get a little traction. So, they’ll say anything.

“It can be a very hurtful place. So, I was a little nervous about that, but to be honest, the support and amount of people that lifted me up, it just really made things a lot easier for me to just not focus on anything negative, and just focus on healing and on my family and getting healthy. And that was just an amazing display of love and support that even in a place as crazy as social media, here is a lot of positivity. So I mean, I’m just so thankful to have had that support and that love and know people have my back.”
