It had been previously reported that Roman Reigns will be out of his WrestleMania 36 match, where he was scheduled to face Goldberg for the Universal Championship. But who will his replacement be?
According to a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Braun Strowman will be taking Reigns place in the match at WrestleMania.
WrestleMania has been taped already, due to Orlando shutting down the Performance Center because of the Coronavirus. Dave Meltzer is reporting that Reigns was at the PC for his match, but ultimately chose to withdraw due to a compromised immune system; a result of his past battles with leukemia. Furthermore, Reigns’ cousins, The Usos, weren’t happy that The Miz was sick, which helped influence Reigns’ decision.
Check out what could have been:
WWE has not released an official statement on the status of these matches.
At this point, should they even go forward with the show? Just postpone the dang thing and get it over with. WWE should make WrestleMania the first live show back after the Coronavirus pandemic has calmed down. It would be one of the most historic broadcasts in the history of professional wrestling.
