Stephanie McMahon Addresses WrestleMania 36 Rumors

Stephanie McMahon Comments On Roman Reigns Pulling Out Of WrestleMania 36, Reports Of Other Superstars Missing PPV

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Stephanie McMahon discussed a few topics related to WrestleMania, including the reports that multiple superstars have been pulled off of the PPV, the company’s testing protocols as well as the steps they are taking in the Performance Center itself.

Featured below are some of the highlights.

Things WWE has done to improve the safety of its performers and employees

“In terms of safety measures and protocols, first and foremost, every performance is voluntary for our performers and crew. That is a really important note to highlight. Also, the Performance Center itself is a closed set. We’re shooting in waves. No one person, regardless of who they are, is allowed to enter if they have a temperature of over 100.4, or if they have been out of the country or been in touch with someone who has been out of the country. We also do pandemic-level cleaning, which includes fogging and ultraviolet light, in the facility every single night. That could be overkill, quite frankly, but we really are trying to put in the best safety practices that we possibly can given the circumstances. Those are some of the measures we are taking, and it is as comprehensive as it can possibly be. We also changed some of the format for WrestleMania. We’re not holding the men’s or women’s battle royal—that’s just too many people in the ring at one time.”

On Roman Reigns’ removing himself from WrestleMania

“With all of our superstars, it really is a voluntary basis. It’s not my place to give his personal situation, but we support our superstars. We support their personal opinions and concerns, and again, this is all voluntary. Especially when you have a talent or a performer with pre-existing conditions, or whatever the reason might be. If someone is uncomfortable, we will absolutely honor that. We want our talent to perform at WrestleMania, but only if they’re comfortable. Regardless of their reasons, they have to be comfortable. It has to be something they want to do. We absolutely support all of our superstars and their decision of whether or not to perform, especially at this time.”

Reports that other wrestlers will miss the PPV

“Those are questions you’re going to have to wait and see how we handle creatively.”
