Last night’s news of Roman Reigns’ leukemia diagnosis rocked the professional wrestling world. Reigns has been forced to relinquish the WWE Universal Title so he can go home and focus on his family and health. In the wake of the news, many within the professional wrestling world have offered Reigns their best wishes and prayers. However, one indy wrestling star also shared a rather amazing story about how Reigns helped him out when he was in a tough spot in the early stages of his career.
Connor Braxton, a product of WWE star Seth Rollins’ “Black & Brave Wrestling Academy,” took to Twitter and shared an amazing story. He said that after he finished training at Black & Brave, he was without a pair of wrestling boots for his first match, which was just days away. With little money, he texted Rollins to ask if he knew anyone who was willing to sell him a pair at a good price.
Rollins responded by saying he believed Roman Reigns had a spare pair and would ask “The Big Dog” himself. When Rollins texted him back, he shared what Reigns had said:
“Roman asked if you were a good brother, and said you can just have them. He said just make sure you pass on the favor to someone for the good of the wrestling business”.
