In October 2018, Roman told shocked fans he received his first leukemia diagnosis at 22. “I was able to put it in remission, but I’m not gonna lie: that was the hardest time of my life,” he recalled. “ I didn’t have a job, I didn’t have any money, I didn’t have a home and I had a baby on the way, and football was done with me.”

He then thanked the WWE for giving him “a chance” before promising he’d beat the disease and be back in the ring. “This is by no means a retirement speech,” he said at the time. “I will beat this, and I will be back, so you will see me very, very soon.”
