• Major Update On Roman Reigns’ In-Ring Return Status
As we all know, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns will return on next week’s episode of RAW to give an update on his battle with leukemia.
During Reigns’ stay in Waikiki, he worked with a trainer named Dave Gonyea and Dave posted on Instagram that Reigns was there to work on his in-ring return.
Below is what Dave posted on Instagram:
“Had the absolute honor and privilege of having Roman Reigns train at islandclubandspa during his stay in Waikiki! It was very humbling for an athlete of his caliber to not only train here but also speak so very highly of our facility. Glad we provided a great space to help him prepare for his in ring return!”

When people began commenting under this post and began asking Dave about Reigns’ in-ring return, Dave commented the following:
“Tune in to RAW on Monday night.”
Some people doubted that WWE faked Reigns’ leukemia to get sympathy for him and finally get him cheered by the majority and this led to Dave commenting the following:
“Nah man he’s still recovering. He won’t be in action for another few months… keep in mind what leukemia is… and that he has been in remission this was a flair up that he needed treatment for. I was working out with him and he was definitely moving slow. It’s the PG era they aren’t working cancer.”
