Wrestling Inc reported that Roman Reigns was in attendance backstage at Monday Night Raw tonight before the show started. They also reported that he left the arena one hour before the show actually started.
There is no word at what Roman Reigns was doing backstage at this time.
One mode of thought indicates that he was either there to see his friends in the WWE in order to talk to them one week removed from his announcement.
The second idea is that Roman was maybe there to do a video promo for the fans.

With that said, this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw opened with a replay of last week’s Roman Reigns leukemia announcement. It was a nice video but it seems like WWE is pushing this real-life cancer battle almost as a story.
Roman Reigns leukemia fight has been picked up by numerous news sites and has become a rallying point for other wrestlers.
WWE NXT North American champion Ricochet talked about the development with the Miami Herald.
“[Roman] Reigns is a real-life superhero. He is the standard of like what, not just a sports entertainer should be, but like what a person should be,” Ricochet said. “He’s such a strong person, such a strong dude. I know he’s gonna kick this thing’s butt and come back stronger than ever.”
