Apart from this the other event that took place in the episode was the return of Roman Reigns. The former universal champion announced his return to action after a four-month hiatus. In October last year, WWE superstar Reigns stunned the Monday Night Raw crowd by announcing his long battle with leukemia and relinquishing the Universal Championship belt. He once again chose the same platform as he returned to Raw on Monday to announce that his cancer has gone back into remission. Reigns says he will be returning to the ring.
More than four months after revealing he was battling leukemia, Roman Reigns — real name Joseph Anoa’i — announced he was in remission and was returning to WWE. “I’m probably going to say this a lot, but I’m going to start off by saying ‘Thank you’,” Anoa’i said. “I missed y’all. I’m serious, I missed y’all, there’s no other job like this, there’s no other fanbase like you guys. I used to say this is my yard, but this is our yard.
