Natalya has dedicated her regular column in the Calgary Sun to Roman Reigns, giving insight into what it was like backstage on the night of his leukemia announcement.
You would think that the wrestling world would have been dominated by Evolution and the controversy that was Crown Jewel for the past week or more. To an extent that has been true. However, even though it has been almost two weeks since the announcement, the revelation that Roman Reigns is battling leukemia continues to play on the minds of fans and wrestlers alike.
Since Reigns made the revelation on Raw and announced that he would be stepping away from the ring for a while, it has become apparent how integral he is to WWE. Turns out Vince McMahon had picked the right guy all along. Almost everyone currently in the WWE locker room has stated how much of a leader Reigns is and how much he means to everyone.
That latest to do so is Natalya, and she has gone a step further than posting her feeling on social media. Nattie has a regular column in the Calgary Sun, and she used her latest entry to talk about Reigns and his leukemia. Even though no one in the locker room was told about Reigns' illness before his announcement, the former Women's Champion said that you could feel a tension in the air.
Everyone backstage was told, "news was going to be shared that would change the direction of the brand." Nattie wrote " I wondered what it could be. What could possibly be such a big deal that we couldn’t miss?" It also sounds as if we only saw the tip of the iceberg when it came to the rest of the roster's reaction. "Backstage, our world stood still. We all were watching the monitor and hugging one another, crying and in total disbelief," Natalya went on to write.
Nattie wrote so much more in her column, explaining that Reigns is basically viewed as the company's Superman. If you want to read the article in its entirety, which we would highly recommend, you can do so by visiting the Calgary Sun's website. Reigns' news has had such an effect on the entire wrestling business. What's most important, however, is that The Big Dog gets better for himself, his wife, and his children.
