It was a star-studded night for many WWE superstars who attended the 2019 ESPYs in Los Angeles, California. Amongst those who attended was The Big Dog himself, Roman Reigns. The wrestler looked sharp in dark blue blazer paired with black trousers, a white shirt, a black tie and black shoes while his hair was pulled back in a ponytail. Roman was nominated in the first ever Best WWE Moment category and won for his triumphant return to WWE by announcing that his leukemia was now in remission during Monday Night RAW.
Roman beat his contemporaries like Becky Lynch, who was nominated for winning the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Championship at Wrestlemania 35’s first-ever women’s main event, Kofi Kingston, who was nominated for clinching his first WWE Championship at Wrestlemania 35 and Ronda Rousey, who was nominated for winning her first WWE Women’s Championship at Summerslam 2019. Reigns humbly accepted his award and in a statement issued said, “For to me just to be able to be healthy was the only award I needed. This is just so flattering for everyone to kind of lift me up and show me that support system and love from everybody.”
The wrestler further shared that it was never about the awards or anything like that. Instead, it was about awareness. For him, it was about sharing his story while hoping that someone could use it for a little bit of hope.
