It looks like a late-replacement opponent for the WWE Universal Championship defense of WWE Hall Of Fame legend Bill Goldberg at WrestleMania 36 has been decided upon following the unexpected news on Thursday evening that Roman Reigns has pulled out of the match due to his refusal to risk his health by continuing to compete during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
As we previously reported earlier this evening, “The Big Dog” is apparently out of the WrestleMania 36 match against Goldberg after speaking to company officials and expressing that he wasn’t comfortable competing anymore given the Coronavirus Pandemic, particularly since he just overcame multiple Leukemia scares.
The WWE Universal title match will still happen and Goldberg will still be wrestling against a new competitor and the rumor is that person is going to be “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman.
The @WrestleVotes account on Twitter seemingly added more fuel to these rumors this evening by tweeting a GIF of Reigns and Strowman embracing.
