So, it’s been 13 years since I’ve really been into wrestling. I lost interest after Eddie Guerrero died and they used it as an angle. I can be crass and insensitive at times, which I’m not proud of, but using someone’s death to turn a profit’s shit.
Yeah, I’ve kept up with the product, especially the older wrestlers I used to watch, but by and large, it’s not huge on my radar. Then, I read about Roman Reigns, real name Leati Joseph Anoaʻi, last night.
OK, here’s a wrestler, who’s currently getting a huge push in the biz. He has everything to lose leaving now in his career, yet, he’s walking away to fight a true fight.
Apparently, in a recent exam, Reigns found his leukemia’d come back after years of remission. Instead of continuing his push and staying in the limelight he’s bowing out to fight…a testament to his character as a person.
I’ve known a lot of people who’ve had cancer. Some made is, some didn’t.
I wish him luck in his fight.
Be good to each other.
