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— John Cena (@JohnCena) October 23, 2018
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.— . (@FightOwensFight) October 23, 2018
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

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— Mike Kanellis (@RealMikeBennett) October 23, 2018
He's our locker room leader.— Singh Brothers (@SinghBrosWWE) October 23, 2018
He IS the business.
He'll be back.
You got this, champ. #ThankYouRoman

Roman Reigns exemplifies everything I believe a true leader should be.— Chad Gable (@WWEGable) October 23, 2018
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
