Reigns stunned the WWE Universe when he relinquished the Universal Championship earlier this week by stating he was diagnosed with the terrible disease 11 years ago and after beating it the cancer unfortunately returned recently.
McMahon was very moved by the way The Big Dog handled the situation in front of the crowd at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island and described him as “a warrior, through and through”.
The Chairman tweeted: “A warrior, through and through. @WWERomanReigns, your entire #WWE family stands with you. #ThankYouRoman.”
Reigns was being skyrocketed to the top of the company after main-eventing four WrestleManias in a row, beating the likes of The Undertaker, John Cena as well as Triple H and winning four world titles.
ex-WWE Champion delivered a powerful speech last Monday night where he insisted he is not retiring from WWE and is instead determined to come back better than ever.
He said: “The reality is my real name is Joe [Anoaʻi] and I'd been living with leukaemia for 11 years... And unfortunately it's back.
"And because the leukaemia is back, I cannot fulfil my role. I can't be that fighting champion and I'm going to have to relinquish the Universal Championship.
"I'm not going to lie, I'll take every prayer you can send my way but I'm not looking for sympathy.

"I'm not looking for you to feel bad for me because I have faith.
"When I was 22 years old I was diagnosed with this and very quickly I was able to put it in remission. But I'm not going to lie, that was the hardest time of my life.
"I didn't have a job, I didn't have any money, I didn't have a home and I had a baby on the way. And football was done with me.
"But do you know who gave me a chance? The team that gave me a chance was the WWE.

"After I'm done whooping leukaemia's a** once again, I'm coming back home.
"I want to show my family, my friends, my children and my wife that when life throws a curveball at me, I am the type of man that will stand in that batter’s box, I will crowd the plate, I will choke up and I will swing for the fences every single time!”
Reigns was scheduled to defend the Universal Championship at WWE Crown Jewel on November 2 in Saudi Arabia against Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar in a Triple Threat Match.
