During the interview, he opened up on his battle with leukemia and his physical health after it.
“Man, I’ve been killing it lately as far as my nutrition and my training so I feel really good right now, but, yeah man, there was definitely that transition getting back, just before (WrestleMania). And I think that’s why you saw me kind of leaning on The Shield at the time, in that very first match back. I mean, it’s live out there, anything can happen, so they just wanted to make sure to kind of keep the training wheels on me for that match, and I was gliding in there.
“I felt really good with the role I was playing. Then we made the next move going into ‘Mania against Drew (McIntyre) and I felt really good there. It gave me a good result. I was able to go in there and kind of feel like my old self and kind of do my thing. Over the past few months now, I’ve really been able to hone in and take my time, work through things, and get my feet down back solid to where I’m rooted in my routine. Everything’s just running on all cylinders now, it’s smooth.”
Earlier this year, Reigns announced on an episode of Monday Night Raw that his leukemia was in remission after battling it in late 2018. He had CML Leukemia, which is chronic myeloid leukemia. They were able to catch it in the early stages and took a pill to treat it as it’s oral chemotherapy.
