Even in 2018, it can take a little while for news to get around. But as people heard that Roman Reigns was once again battling leukemia, many of those whose lives he’s touched took to social media to offer their support.
Messages continue to be posted from around the world, from inside WWE and out. Many of them are from fans, some of whom are famous. Several are from people outside the wrestling business all together, another reminder his real name is Joe.
An earlier collection of messages can be found here. We’ll keep updating (until we need a third post), and encourage you to add your thoughts or messages you see in the comments below.

After watching the beginning of WWE Raw last night, I’ve come to the conclusion that we all should be grateful that we woke up this morning to experience life to its fullest. Make each day count, because you never know what life will throw at you. #ThankYouRoman— Kurt Angle (@RealKurtAngle) October 23, 2018

It’s no secret that in the dressing rooms of wrestling, politics & bitterness still exists & rivalries between companies are/will be there.— ウィル・オスプレイ (@WillOspreay) October 23, 2018
But it’s so lovely to see everyone banding together to wish @WWERomanReigns good health.
That’s what makes wrestling very special.
Me and @WWERomanReigns goes back along ways. He’s one hell of a father, friend, worker, and a human being. He will win this battle. #loveyoubrother #strong #brave #willovercome @WWE pic.twitter.com/iiJAM9WOsu— Heath Slater (@HeathSlaterOMRB) October 23, 2018
