• Shawn Michaels Comments On Roman Reigns Not Using His Previous Battle With Leukemia To Get Over

During a recent interview with ComicBook, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels talked about Roman Reigns’ Leukemia announcement and how “The Big Dog” didn’t use his first battle with Leukemia to “get over”.

Below is what HBK said:

“It’s someone in your line of work, a person that you know, a person that you understand is a leader of this locker room, a leader of this generation, a role that once you have played or have seen other people play and understanding that that guy is going through something tough. And for us, that’s when it gets real.

We live in a constant world of make-believe. and on one hand, it’s the greatest thing in the world because it allows none of us to have to grow up and become adults. Every now and then real life comes in an throws you something in your face that makes you understand that real life does happen. And also to appreciate the time that we have with each other.

To understand that that’s something he’s fought through before, that was a revelation I don’t think anyone knew about. It’s encouraging on one hand, but it helps you understand and get to know him.

He could have used that to help in the wrestling business to help him ‘get over’ but that was something the human being, who he is, the real-life person didn’t want to do that he just wanted to put that behind him, go on his own merit, go on his own ability and be judged on that. And that speaks to the real character behind that young man.”
