Roman Reigns Off WrestleMania 36, Braun Strowman To Challenge Goldberg For Universal Title?



Roman Reigns was scheduled to wrestle Goldberg for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 36, but unfortunately, The Big Dog couldn’t make it.

According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, Reigns hasn’t competed for the big red belt at the 36th edition of the Show Of Shows. He didn’t feel comfortable traveling to the Performance Center in Orlando due to his compromised immune system. It is to be noted that The Big Dog resides in Tampa, just over an hour away from Orlando.

“Sources with knowledge of the situation tell us Reigns expressed to WWE that he didn’t feel comfortable doing anymore of the Performance Center shows during the coronavirus pandemic because he’s immunocompromised from his battle with leukemia and didn’t want to risk his health.”

Fightful reports that the WWE crew was informed about Reigns’ absence on the first day WWE began filming WrestleMania 36.

“We’ve been told that much of the crew involved found out that Roman Reigns wouldn’t be participating on Wednesday.”

In October 2018, Reigns was forced to relinquish the Universal Title to take a medical hiatus in order to battle returning leukemia. Four months later in February, The Big Dog made his grand return to the ring and went on to defeat Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 35.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio weighed in on the theory and revealed that Braun Strowman has possibly replaced Reigns in the Universal Title match against Goldberg.

“Yes, WrestleMania was taped Wednesday and Thursday and Roman Reigns did not wrestle Bill Goldberg. I believe Braun Strowman wrestled Bill Goldberg. Roman Reigns made the call himself. It was interesting because he was there and made the call.”

For what it’s worth, The Monster Among Men had been featured in the Universal Title picture numerous times during his initial days on RAW but never got the opportunity to lay his hands on the gold.

So, the million-dollar question is, has Strowman dethroned Goldberg? We’ll find out when WrestleMania 36 airs on April 4th and 5th on the WWE Network.
