Roman Reigns Out Of Wrestlemania Match

According to a report from Pro Wrestling Sheet, Roman Reigns is out of his planned match with Goldberg for the Universal Title at Wrestlemania 36.

Reigns expressed to WWE that he didn’t feel comfortable doing anymore of the Performance Center shows during the Covid-19 pandemic because he’s immunocompromised from his battle with leukemia and didn’t want to risk his health. WWE honored his request and he will now be replaced by someone else in the match against Goldberg, though it’s unclear who at this time.

 

S.A.M.’s Spiel: Well this certainly sucks on every level but I can totally understand Roman’s view here. The man just went through a battle with leukemia and he does not want to do anything to risk his health given he could be susceptible to contracting Covid-19. It will be interesting to see who they get to replace Reigns and how that will change how the match is booked.
