Many WWE stars have taken to social media to react to Roman Reigns vacating the WWE Universal Championship and taking a leave of absence from WWE to once again battle leukemia, which had been in remission since late 2008.
Below are several of the messages:
‘Courage – strength in the face of pain or grief.’ You have given us your everything including a courageously vulnerable moment. We, your WWE family, give you all of our love and support. #ThankYouRoman #NeverGiveUp

Roman is one of the best I’ve ever been in the ring with and one of the guys I respect and look up to the most in this industry.
My thoughts are with him and his family. I can’t wait to see him overcome this and get to share a locker room with him again soon.#ThankYouRoman

Our job gives us the ability to portray larger than life characters who possess super human qualities and characteristics.
After hearing his story it’s very apparent that Joe Anoa’i is just as much of a superhero as “Roman Reigns” is.#ThankYouRoman

Roman is one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the privilege to share a locker room with. We all knew he was the locker room leader and we all aspired to be like him. Come back stronger than ever my friend #ThankYouRoman @WWERomanReigns

He’s our locker room leader.
He IS the business.
He’ll be back.
You got this, champ. #ThankYouRoman

Roman Reigns exemplifies everything I believe a true leader should be.
Proud to have shared a locker room with him, and I’ll be proud to share it with him again after he wins this battle.#ThankYouRoman
