Reigns got a big hug on the ramp from Seth Rollins, one of the other members of his wrestling group The Shield.
The four-time WWE world champion announced back on RAW four months ago that he was relinquishing his Universal Championship belt to fight leukemia. Reigns’ leukemia had been in remission since 2008 prior to returning last year.
