• John Cena Reveals What He Told Roman Reigns After Leukemia Announcement
During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena revealed what he told “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns after Reigns made his Leukemia announcement on RAW.
Below is what Cena said:
“I texted him the day of the announcement just letting him know that he is in really good hands. He is part of a very exclusive fraternity. We all love him for what he’s done. We all respect the fact that he is taking care of his health which is first and foremost. I told him if he needs anything he knows where to find me.
I know Joe. I know Joe’s a tough SOB. I don’t ever expect ‘Hey man, I need this’.
I don’t ever expect to get that text, but if I do I think we have a mutual understanding that he knows it’s as good as done.”
