Goldberg was scheduled to defend the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 36 against Roman Reigns. Unfortunately many plans have changed due to the coronavirus, and now, one of the feature matches of WrestleMania 36 has been changed.
Roman Reigns recently refused to fly to Orlando to film WrestleMania due to his compromised immune system from his history with leukemia. So that match has been cancelled.
Roman made his return to the WWE on WrestleMania 35, after having a scary battle with leukemia.
It is still not known who will take Roman’s place in the match, but Goldberg is still expected to defend his title.
You can see the announcement below:
