As we previously reported, the now-former Universal Champion Roman Reigns announced during RAW last night that he is battling leukemia and will, unfortunately, have to vacate his Championship and head home to focus on kicking the disease to the curb.
Despite being known as WWE’s biggest competitor, New Japan Pro Wrestling has reacted to Reigns’ shocking announcement. In an act of kindness and class, the company tweeted Reigns a message from their official @NJPWGlobal account.

The response has had a lot of fan support, with users on Twitter thanking the company for joining in on thanking Reigns for what he has done and wishing him the best with his next battle.

Reigns was originally scared to face Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia but will now be out of that match.
