Roman Reigns was set to face Goldberg at WrestleMania 36 for the Universal Title. Now he won’t be on the show of shows as planned.
Roman Reigns will not be competing for the WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 36. Due to his compromised immune system, he does not feel comfortable making the trip to Orlando for the Performance Center shows.
Reigns lives in Tampa, just over an hour away from Orlando.
Roman Reigns will be replaced in the match, but it is not certain who will replace him at this time.
Reigns is at higher risk for COVID-19 as a former cancer patient. The Mayo Clinic offered more guidance on the matter:
“Because cancer treatments weaken the body’s immune system, cancer patients are among those at risk of serious illness from COVID-19,” the Mayo Clinic wrote.
