Three months after relinquishing the Universal Championship and stepping away from the ring to focus on his battle with leukemia, Roman Reigns took to social media to update his fans on his progress.
Reigns’ update comes on the heels of his cousin The Rock’s announcement that Reigns would be appearing with The People’s Champ in “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” a spinoff of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise.

Family Healing! I cannot thank my family, friends and my new FAST & FURIOUS FAMILY enough for all the love and support I have received while on this exciting HOBBS & SHAW project. The time I‘ve spent with my cousin on this wonderful island has truly been a healing grace. I am grateful to the @wwe @therock @universalpictures and everyone on the set of HOBBS & SHAW, for allowing me to be a part of this franchise. All of your outreach and support has been a blessing and it’s only pushed me to get back in the ring as soon as possible. But until then…I’m excited for this movie to premiere this summer, our culture and mana in this film is strong! 📸: @hhgarcia41 #HobbsAndShaw #BigDog #WelcomeRomanReigns #WWE #TheRock
Reigns disclosed on the Oct. 22 edition of Raw that he had been living with leukemia for 11 years, and that he would be taking a leave of absence from WWE to combat the disease.
