The COVID-19 outbreak has taken over the world and that includes professional wrestling. WWE had to change their plans due to the disease. Roman Reigns decided to opt-out of his match with Goldberg at WrestleMania. He could not take the risk of contracting the disease considering his previous medical history.
While speaking to Ariel Helwani’s MMA show on ESPN, Triple H talked about Roman Reigns having to pull out from his WrestleMania match. He revealed the company will take a unique approach in order to write him out so that it makes sense in the storyline.
“You can watch our business in multiple different ways. One of them is the storyline aspect of it and to follow the storyline. Another way is the online component of it and the reality of it behind it. Roman has his situation and his reasons for doing the things he’s doing, but I will say from our standpoint and the storyline standpoint, it’s going to play out in a unique manner and we want it to play out that way. I don’t want to give away the ending of the movie before the movie takes place. Everybody just has to watch and see how this unfolds. It will unfold in a unique way and I think it will be meaningful for everybody.”
“There will always be critics, it’s our company’s mission to put smiles on peoples faces, and that’s what we’re trying to do in this situation at a time where people really need those smiles. It might not be the perfect product but it is the product and it is what it is right now.”
