Roman Reigns Addresses The Rumors
According to all of the recent reports, the Universal Title match between Roman Reigns and Goldberg had to be cancelled after Roman had to pull out of the event. Reigns’ battle with Leukemia is well-documented, and in the middle of the current outbreak, with him being immunocompromised, he decided to step away.
WWE has not made an official comment on this or confirmed it, but Roman Reigns talked about it on his Instagram.
“You already know what’s going on. It’s all over the news — the dirtsheets, whatever you want to call them — that I pulled out of WrestleMania,”
“It’s funny because, for years now, man, years, people are like, ‘Don’t show up to WrestleMania. We don’t want you in it.’ There’s a nice handful of dudes and haters that didn’t want me there. But the moment I make a choice for me and my family, I’m a ‘coward,’ I’m a ‘sissy’ — a lot of different things that I am now.”
“But you don’t know the whole story. All you know is what you think: ‘Oh, well, his health,’ and this and that. You don’t know what else is going on in my life. You don’t know if I have newborns. You don’t know if I have family in my household, older family.”Roman Reigns
