ROMAN REIGNS has reportedly signed a new “multi-year contract” with Vince McMahon’s WWE.
No details on the length or financials of the new bumper deal have been confirmed.
But Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin has reported “The Big Dog” recently signed a contract “for at least a few more years” with the company.
Reigns, 34, is arguably the biggest full-time superstar on WWE’s roster.
Despite previously being much-maligned by fans, he won over his critics with his stunning real-life bravery in overcoming cancer for a second time.
He 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 – 11 years after beating it.
Reigns, real name Joe Anoa’I, did not appear on WWE TV for four months but made several public appearances while fighting the leukaemia.
However, he shocked everyone in February when he confirmed he was in remission and returned to defeat Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania on April 7.
Meanwhile, over the past year the formation of rival promotion All Elite Wrestling has shook up the business.
Dean Ambrose, aka Jon Moxley, and Tye Dillinger, aka Shawn Spears, were two stars to leave WWE to join AEW.

Now McMahon is trying to ensure he has all of his top stars tied-down to long-term contracts to avoid the risk of losing them.
Last month Braun Strowman announced he had penned a new five-year extension.
That came after reports the legendary Undertaker had agreed a “contract for life” with WWE.
And Reigns, who is now following The Rock and John Cena’s steps into Hollywood, will no doubt have agreed a similar length.
