WWE chairman Vince McMahon has paid tribute to Roman Reigns, in the wake of his announcement that his leukemia has returned.
Roman’s announcement shocked the wrestling world last night, and since then wrestlers from far and wide have been sending their well wishes to the former Universal Champion.
It’s no secret that Vince has always been a big fan of Roman both in and outside of the ring, and the two men have shared a series of storylines together on Monday Night Raw over the years.

Vince’s statement that Roman is a warrior is something that has been echoed by thousands upon thousands of fans in the WWE Universe, and as he begins the long journey that he has ahead of him, we all have no doubt that he’ll come out the other side of this a stronger man than ever before.
We all get caught up in the politics of professional wrestling, especially when we have events like Evolution and Crown Jewel right around the corner, but none of it really matters. None of it.
You can say whatever you want about Vince McMahon either in the realms of WWE or as a human being, but he’ll do everything in his power to ensure that Reigns gets through this.
Last night’s Monday Night Raw will forever be remembered for this announcement, but in the immediate aftermath of that, let’s remember that everyone from WWE, NJPW and beyond took the time to remind Roman Reigns that he is not alone.
