Apparently Roman Reigns isn’t the only WWE Superstar that has pulled out of WrestleMania 36, as a growing list of names that the company is keeping confidential will not be included in this year’s two-night pay-per-view special for a wide-variety of reasons.
Outside of the breaking news on Thursday evening regarding “The Big Dog” pulling himself from his scheduled WWE Universal Championship match against Bill Goldberg at WrestleMania 36 due to health concerns related to the Coronavirus Pandemic and his previous battle with Leukemia, there are other names that are “being kept confidential” by WWE that will not be part of the shows next weekend.
According to Dave Meltzer in this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter at F4WOnline.com, multiple additional WWE Superstars will not be part of WrestleMania this year after informing the company that they were feeling ill.
In these situations right now, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, WWE is immediately pulling talent off of shows when they are claiming to be sick.
In other cases, WWE Superstars arrived at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida — the site of the tapings for this year’s two-night WrestleMania 36 taped pay-per-view events — with slight fevers above 100.4 F, which was WWE’s cut-off point for not allowing talents to work.
Additionally, there were some employees and other wrestlers who reportedly told WWE that they were simply not comfortable flying in to Orlando for the show for various reasons.
WWE has apparently told all wrestlers and employees that if they do not feel comfortable traveling during the Coronavirus Pandemic, they absolutely do not have to, and that such a decision was promised not to negatively affect them in any way, shape or form when it comes to booking / creative decisions, or anything else related to their WWE careers going forward.
