Its been tough for Seth Rollins since Roman Reigns' temporary WWE departure to battle leukemia. As one of his closest friends and partners inside the ring now goes back home, away from the brotherhood within the WWE locker room, to fight for his life. Rollins, currently the WWE Intercontinental Champion, watched from backstage as his Shield-brother announced to the world he has been rediagnosed with leukemia and will forfeit the WWE Universal Title in order to go back home and focus on his health.
Rollins opened up on the subject during a recent interview with Al Arabiya English. "The Architect" noted that he is "fighting the urge" to check in on Reigns every two hours like a brother. But in the end, he knows Reigns is strong and is in a good state mentally:
"It threw everything up in the air. It's hard to go a day without thinking about him and how he's doing and hoping he's doing alright. I'm fighting the urge to check in on him like a brother every two hours, but he's a strong dude, and I know that he's in a good place mentally as well as physically. He's in good health for the most part. I think he's going to be able to fight this thing pretty strong.
"We're just getting through it while we can. Obviously it's going to be easier as time goes on, but certainly the last couple weeks have been, and last week especially, have been a rollercoaster of emotions. Lots of ups and downs."
