After a shocking announcement of his leukemia coming out of remission, Roman Reigns – who’s real name is Leati Joseph Anoa’i – was forced to step away from WWE. However, his leukemia was making miraculous progress quickly after his devastating announcement, which resulted in him relinquishing the Universal Championship.
Just four months after leaving the ring, Reigns returned to WWE Raw in heroic fashion. Although he missed the Royal Rumble during his absence, the son of WWE Hall of Famer Sika Anoa’i and brother of late WWE superstar Matthew “Rosey” Anoa’i was able to reunite The Shield trio tag team (with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose) as Ambrose was on his way to departing the company.
In addition to temporarily reuniting The Shield for a few matches, Reigns commenced a feud with Drew McIntyre, which led to a match at WrestleMania 35 in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The “Big Dog” was able to gain a victory over McIntyre.
In addition to the overwhelming support by the fans, the WWE star’s greatest support came from his family. Particularly, Roman Reigns wife Galina Anoa’i. While she is not showcased on WWE, Galina has been an overwhelming source of support for the former Georgia Tech University college football player.

Galina Joelle Becker, daugher of Kevin and Mildred Becker, is a Florida native. Galina Becker was very athletic in high school, particularly in the triple jump event of track and field. She continued to perfect her track and field skills while attending the Georgia Institute of Technology. Her athleticism led to a successful journey as a fitness model. Also, here is where she met Reigns before he started a career in professional wrestling.
After being friends, Anoa’i and Becker started a serious relationship and welcomed their daughter Joelle Anoa’i on December 14, 2008. On February 26, 2012, the two became engaged, and Galina officially became a member of the Anoa’i family in December 2014 at Disney’s Castaway Cay. In 2016, the couple welcomed twin boys.
The net worth of Galina is estimated to be $3 million. As an American professional wrestler, Reigns’ achievements – which includes reigns with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Universal Championship, Intercontinental Championship, and United States Championship – has resulted in a net worth of $12 million.
In 2015, Galina was featured in the WWE 24 documentary Roman Reigns: Never Alone, as WWE chronicled Reigns’ journey of competing against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31.
