WWE star Roman Reigns is reportedly set to make a stunning comeback at WrestleMania just months after he was diagnosed with leukaemia.
The Big Dog, 33, shocked the world in October when he announced live on Monday Night Raw he was relinquishing the Universal Title after being diagnosed with the deadly disease for a second time.
Reigns, real name Joe Anoa’I, has not appeared on WWE TV since but has made several public appearances.
Fans have been buoyed to see the four-time champ attend a football game and pose for a selfie with a copper before being snapped with a fan in the gym while on holiday in Hawaii last month.
During that trip he also spent time with former world boxing heavyweight champion Joseph Parker while continuing his road to recovery.
The Daily Star claim his friends have revealed the superstar has been responding well treatment and is on the mend.
Now, just four months after his heartbreaking announcement, they claim Wrestling News believes WWE are dropping a number of hints Reigns’ long-awaited comeback will be at the Showcase of the Immortals on April 7.
Reigns, who formed The Shield with Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, watched on from home as the trio’s famous triple-powerbomb was borrowed by Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley and Baron Corbin and Sunday’s Elimination Chamber.
