Leukemia is no joke, he's been battling it for eleven years.
I may not like the character portrayed on tv, but I always respect the man behind the camera until proven otherwise.
Get well soon, sir. 👊🏼🙏🏼 #RESPECT💯
I’m a wrestling fan. Always have been. Always will be. Doesn’t matter if it’s WWE, Ring Of Honor, or New Japan, or any of the smaller independents vying to make their mark. We live vicariously through them, and we cheer and shout and scream when we see something that makes us move.
This is what wrestling does to me. Until real life injects itself.
Seeing a guy like Roman Reigns, who tonight, announced he was battling his 2nd fight with Leukemia, really put himself out there like this, humanizes something that we take for granted. Wrestling fans are fickle. But it’s when we see the real person behind the character, and see their vulnerabilities and their insecurities, and show us who they really are, it allows to become bigger fans of the person and the character they portray.
I want to thank Joe for everything he has given to the business of sports entertainment. The sport of professional wrestling. He has been the guy who was at the forefront of the growth of the WWE and pro wrestling in the last 5 years, good, bad, or indifferent. Seeing him grow from FCW to Wrestlemania headliner, tonight left me abit speechless. I’m a wrestling fan. And i’m proud to be a fan of this man, and i wish him the best in his battle against cancer.
Wishing you the best, big dawg!
