• Roman Reigns Appearing On A WWE Program This Week
“The Big Dog” Roman Reigns was scheduled to face WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 36, but the match was scrapped when Reigns decided to go on a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic (The Miz showed up sick during WrestleMania tapings, Reigns has a weak immune system due to leukemia, and his wife was about to give birth).
Reigns has made very few appearances on WWE programming since then (on online WWE shows).
He’s now set to appear on The R-Truth Game Show this Tuesday on the WWE Network. He’ll be squaring off against Drake Maverick.
