Former WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns made his first public appearance since he revealed that he had leukemia. The reign is seen at the American football match where the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets face the Georgia Bulldog. In a message on Twitter, Reigns said, "I am a very large dog here. Fuck Georgia, baby. "Incidentally, 33-year-old Reigns also played for the Georgia Tech football team.
Three weeks ago, the Roman Government released the belt of WWE Universal after announcing that it would undergo treatment for leukemia. So this might be the first public appearance to be in power for more than a month.
In a very emotional speech, Big Dog revealed that he had been fighting leukemia for 11 years and because of relapse he could not fulfill his duties in the ring.

"I feel I owe everyone an apology. For months, maybe even all year long, I came here as a Roman government and said I would come here every week, that I would be the champion of the struggle, that I would be consistent, that I would go to work hard – but that's all lie, "Reigns said on Sunday Night Raw.
"The fact is my real name is Joe and I have lived with leukemia for 11 years. And unfortunately it came back and because leukemia returned, I could not fulfill my role, I could not become a champion of battle and I had to let go of the Universal Championship, "he added.
"I will not lie, I will take every prayer you can send to me but I am not looking for sympathy and I am not looking for you to feel bad for me because I have confidence," Reign said while standing in the ring, "he added.
While the Government has promised to make a comeback to WWE the date is unknown. He will most likely lose Wrestlemania 35 which will take place in April next year.
"I will return because I want to show you all at home and my family and my children and my wife that when life throws a curveball at me, I will choke and I will swing to the fence at any time. I will beat this and I will come back so you will see me very, very fast, "he concluded.
