Roman Reigns has not been on WWE television since before WrestleMania. He made the decision to stay at home during the pandemic to keep his family healthy. Now, he has opened up about the decision a bit more.
In a recent interview with The Hindu, Reigns mentioned he can’t trust everyone to take the pandemic seriously. Here is the full quote:
“For me, I just had to make a choice for my family. The company (WWE) has done everything that they can to make it the safest work environment possible. It is not the workplace that I was necessarily concerned about. The decision was taken mainly because each performer travels so much, and we are all such a diverse group and from all over the place. I’m not convinced, and I can’t trust the fact that everybody is taking it as seriously and locking themselves down at home like I am. I trust my life with my co-workers every time I step foot in the ring, but I just can’t put the same trust when it has my children, my wife and my family involved.”
Reigns also mentioned that he does not want to it to seem like he is standing against WWE.
“But I don’t want it to come off as I am taking a stand against the company at all, because I love the WWE. I’ve been a part of this company just since I was a little boy. That’s why I always take it so personally when I represent them.”
Reigns was supposed to wrestle Goldberg for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania. His departure from television was never addressed and he was replaced by Braun Strowman.
