Roman Reigns' Replacement at WrestleMania Revealed, More On Why Reigns Pulled Out

Braun Strowman Confirmed as Roman Reigns Replacement, More On Why Reigns Pulled Out
As noted last night, Roman Reigns pulled out of his match with Goldberg earlier this week.

Reigns wasn't comfortable competing at the Performance Center since he is immunocompromised from his battle with leukemia.

Meltzer reported that Reigns was actually at the Performance Center when he made the call himself to pull out of the match. It was noted that The Miz being sick and the Usos not being happy about it played into Reigns' decision.

As noted on our latest report on WrestleMania Changes, Braun Strowman will reportedly be replacing Roman Reigns against WWE Universal Champion Goldberg at WrestleMania 36.

Meltzer noted that the Strowman vs. Goldberg match was taped this week, and it is believed that an angle to build the match was shot at the Performance Center that will be inserted into this Friday night's episode of SmackDown.

WrestleMania 36 was taped this week and is scheduled to air on April 4th and 5th on the WWE Network.
