• Backstage News On Brock Lesnar & Roman Reigns’ Return To WWE TV
“The Beast” Brock Lesnar lost the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre in the main event of Night 2 of WrestleMania 36, while “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns pulled out of his Universal Championship match against Goldberg due to health concerns.
According to PWInsider, Lesnar isn’t needed on WWE TV right now since he lost to Title, so expectation is that he’ll be kept of TV until the COVID-19 pandemic is under control.
On the other hand, Wrestlingnewsco is reporting that Reigns isn’t expected back on TV for a few months:
“The wrestlers I spoke to all agree that Reigns pulling out of the show was the right decision and one person who is friends with Reigns told me that he probably won’t be back for at least a few months
There is no word on how Vince McMahon feels about Reigns’ decision, but it is interesting that the announcers were told not to mention Reigns during the WrestleMania commentary.”
