Roman Reigns is back training ahead of his return to the WWE after battling leukemia
Great to see.
Personal trainer David Gonyea has announced that the four-time world champion Roman Reigns, real name Leati Joseph Anoaʻi, is back training after his recent battle with leukemia.
A few months ago, the 2015 Royal Rumble winner announced that he was taking time off from his profession and relinquished his Universal Championship belt.
As you can see in the Instagram post below, Gonyea was more than happy to prepare the WWE superstar for his return to the ring.
The post states: "Had the absolute honour and privilege of having Roman Reigns train during his stay in Waikiki! It was very humbling for an athlete of his caliber to not only train here but also speak so very highly of our facility. Glad we provided a great space to help him prepare for his in ring return!"
Vince McMahon confirmed that Reigns would be returning to Raw on Monday to provide an update on his battle with leukaemia.
In recent months, Reigns has also been filming a minor cameo for The Rock's Fast and Furious spinoff, Hobbs & Shaw - Reign's real-life cousin is The Rock.
At the time of his initial departure, the former member of The Shield said that he'd be heading home to focus on his health and treatment.
"I will beat this, I will be back, and you will see me very, very soon. But I want to make one thing clear, by no means is this a retirement speech," he said. "Because after I'm done whooping leukemia's ass once again I'm coming back home. And when I do, it's not just going to be about titles and being on top, no it's about a purpose.
"I am coming back because I want to show all of you, the whole world, I want to show my family, my friends, my children and my wife, that when life throws a curve ball at me, I am the type of man that will stand in that batter's box, I will crowd the plate, I will choke up and I will swing for the fences every single time. Because I will beat this and I will be back and you will see me very, very soon," he said.
It's great to see him healthy.
