After recovering, Roman made a successful comeback with his recent feud with Goldberg, heading to the main event match at Wrestlemania 36 for the Universal Championship. That move, along with the increased restrictions on travel and growing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, also pushed it from a live event to a taped event that will air over two nights next month.
But it appears the event has now taken another hit with one of the WWE's biggest names pulling out of the show.
Reigns was previously diagnosed with the condition in May of 2007, while he was on the roster of the NFL's Minnesota Vikings.
It was only a matter of time until WWE was impacted by the coronavirus.
Reigns was scheduled to face WWE Universal Champion Bill Goldberg at the event, and had built the match-up over several weeks. Reigns reportedly told officials that he did not feel comfortable doing the show at the Performance Center during the coronavirus pandemic.
For Reigns, the decision comes with the 34-year-old looking out for his own health first, as Reigns has a compromised immune system from his multiple battles with leukemia, including one from October 2018 to February 2019. He formally announced on February 25 of previous year that his leukemia had gone into remission. Goldberg will instead defend his title against an alternate opponent, although there is no word at this time about who that may be.
It remains unclear at this as to who will replace Reigns in the event.
