Rikishi Comments On Roman Reigns Battle With Cancer

Reigns cousin Rikishi commented on Roman's battle with his Leukemia, and had been asked if he was aware of this before the announcement. Thanks to an interview by WrestlingInc, we now know the answer.

"We all knew about it. But it was his timing and as a family we supported his thoughts and when it was right for him to come out with it. I can't tell you how proud I am of him of being able to speak up because it's a domino effect in helping other kids diagnosed with leukemia. As we see on a weekly basis, he's doing the charities and meet-and-greets and bringing awareness to that disease. It's a beautiful thing as he's utilizing his platform. It's bigger than wrestling and that's one thing we're so happy he's able to get out there and bring awareness."

Rikishi added that it's crazy to be diagnosed with something that can kill you, and Reigns has been told that two or three times. Rikishi said more athletes shouldn't be scared to tell their story.
