But there is a report from the US that states that WWE doctors are keeping an eye on Reigns due to his medical history. Renowned professional wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer stated that WWE has doctors monitor Roman Reigns. His leukemia is in remission, but it is still there.

“They have doctors who are going to monitor Roman Reigns, but he’s got a weakened immune system to a degree because the CML leukemia is in him for life. He beat it. It may not come back, it may come back. CML is one of those things that can come back and you know, likely will and he’ll likely go through the same scenario that he did. It’s one of those things that’s in you and it can come back. That’s one of the things that’s not really good as far as risk goes.”
