March 4, 2019 Observer Newsletter: Roman Reigns returns to WWE after leukemia remission, more


Roman Reigns (Leati Joseph Anoa’i, 33), returned to WWE after four months off, which included both a battle with leukemia as well as a role in the movie “Hobbs and Shaw” on the 2/25 show in Atlanta.

His return was a heavy emotional scene, both for himself and the crowd at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta. He noted that he was officially in remission and was back. Later he got physical in an angle where he and Seth Rollins saved Dean Ambrose from a beating from Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, Baron Corbin and Elias, where he was doing his trademark Superman punch and laid out McIntyre with a spear. Nothing was said about a first match back, but it would make sense for it to be at the 3/10 Fastlane PPV from Cleveland or at WrestleMania on 4/7 in East Rutherford, NJ, with some sort of a Shield reunion. That would make the former more likely since Rollins is scheduled to face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania.
