WWE Announces Braun Strowman As Goldberg's New Opponent With No Explanation

WWE Announces Braun Strowman As Goldberg's New Opponent With No Explanation
WWE has officially announced Braun Strowman as Roman Reigns' replacement for the WrestleMania 36 Universal Title match against Goldberg.


Michael Cole made the Strowman vs. Goldberg announcement during tonight's go-home edition of SmackDown on FOX. There was no mention of Roman Reigns backing out but as we've noted, Reigns did not compete as he was concerned about his his health and competing during the coronavirus outbreak due to his immune system.

WWE had originally announced a Reigns - Goldberg face-off for tonight's SmackDown, where it was expected that the change would be explained, but that segment hasn't happened yet and it was removed from the SmackDown preview. Also, Triple H said in a recent interview that Roman Reigns was going to be removed from WrestleMania in a "Very Unique Manner" but apparently the palns changed somehow.

The taped WrestleMania 36 event is scheduled to air tomorrow, Saturday, April 4 and Sunday, April 5 at 7pm ET, via the WWE Network and pay-per-view. It was taped on a closed set with no fans, at the WWE Performance Center and other locations. The Kickoff pre-show will begin at 6pm ET on both nights, and we will have live coverage beginning then.
