• WWE Doctors Monitoring Roman Reigns For Coronavirus

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, WrestleMania 36 has been moved to the WWE Performance Center (but it will still take place on April 5th).

The co-main event of the show will be “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns challenging Goldberg for the Universal Championship.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, WWE Doctors are monitoring Reigns for coronavirus because he has a weak immune system due to CML leukemia:

“They have doctors who are going to monitor Roman Reigns, but he’s got a weakened immune system to a degree because the CML leukemia is in him for life.

He beat it. It may not come back, it may come back. CML is one of those things that can come back and you know, likely will and he’ll likely go through the same scenario that he did.

It’s one of those things that’s in you and it can come back. That’s one of the things that’s not really good as far as risk goes.”

Speaking of Reigns, he’ll appear live on this week’s SmackDown from the Performance Center for a WrestleMania 36 contract signing with Universal Champion Goldberg.
