Former WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns opens up on his return to in-ring action under the WWE banner.
He returned to competition when he teamed up with fellow Shield members Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to beat Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin, and Bobby Lashley in a six-man tag team match that served as the headliner of Sunday’s (March 10th, 2019) WWE Fastlane pay-per-view event from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on the WWE Network.
This marked his first match back in five months since revealing that his battle with leukemia had returned. While doing a recent interview with Variety, Reigns talked about his journey back.
“I think a lot of it was nerves. Nothing prepares you for the ring like the ring. I’ve had some really good training sessions, some great workouts, but nothing is like being in that ring in front of that crowd with the lights on you. I was pretty nervous that I would have that ring rust…but I felt once I got out there and started moving around. My instincts took over and it was just like riding a bike.”
