• Triple H Confirms Roman Reigns’ WrestleMania 36 Status
While we all know that “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns won’t be a part of WrestleMania 36, WWE still hasn’t made an official announcement regarding Reigns being out of the Universal Championship match and is still promoting Goldberg vs. Reigns for this weekend’s WrestleMania 36 pay-per-view.
However, that changed with Triple H being asked about Reigns’ status during an interview with ESPN and “The Game” confirmed Reigns opting to not compete at the Show of Shows:
“You know, there are various talents, and I don’t wanna get into the specifics of WrestleMania because that’s a must-see event, but we don’t like to take precautions with our talent, any more so than we need to, and all of our talents are in this in a voluntary capacity.
If they don’t want to be a part of this, they feel there’s a risk, for whatever reasons, be it themselves or somebody around them, they don’t have to be here. Nothing is held against them for that. Same with our crew and everybody else.
We don’t want to take chances on that, and with Roman having a pre-existing condition, that would make him more susceptible to something, it’s understandable.”
