World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has secured the future of one of its biggest stars with Roman Reigns – real name Leati Joseph Anoaʻi - reportedly signing a multi-year deal. It’s a major coup for the promotion as there are few who can draw crowds like Reigns, who is a real life hero after he battled back from Leukemia to get back to singles competition inside the squared circle.

According to Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin, the Florida-born Samoan wrestler has agreed to commit his future to WWE by agreeing a multi-year deal last month. The exact details of the contract are unknown but he will remain with the promotion for at least the next few years.

Reigns returned to WWE programming in February after revealing that his Leukemia was in remission and was given a rousing welcome by the WWE Universe. He reunited with The Shield for his first few encounters before entering the ring for a single match against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 35.

The 34-year-old, who starred in the #1 movie in the United States at the moment “Hobbs & Shaw”, recently confirmed during an interview that he has no plans of slowing down his wrestling schedule and admitted that he could go on for at least another five-years before considering a part-time role. He appreciated the movie role alongside former WWE star and cousin Dwayne “The Rock’ Johnson but made it clear that his main focus is on WWE.

"I can hold this schedule for at least 5 more years of being full-time. It’s great having other opportunities, but I still love having my physical thing in the ring,” Reigns told TMZ Sports during a recent interview promoting the new movie.

Reigns also recently praised WWE in the face of comments suggesting newly formed pro-wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is threatening their dominance in North America. He made it clear that the world’s most popular pro-wrestling promotion is way ahead of AEW and it's generous to be labeling them competition at this point.
