Roman Reigns is reflecting on a conversation he had with Vince McMahon that in hindsight, he stands behind.
Ahead of the biggest match in WrestleMania history, a Championship title unification match pitting his WWE Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar and his WWE Championship, Roman Reigns is reflecting on early in the COVID-19 pandemic.
In speaking to ESPN, Reigns discussed the decision to remove himself from his WWE Championship match against champion at the time, Goldberg at WrestleMania 36.
Reigns was on the heels of additional treatments for his Leukemia and immunocompromised in addition to his wife, Galina being pregnant with twins at the time.
Roman said his conversation with Vince McMahon regarding his decision to withdraw from the match, “wasn’t a good one.”
Reigns went on to add regarding the experience at the beginning of the global pandemic:
“We didn’t have enough information [about COVID-19], We didn’t have a proper protocol for protection. I think I made the very smart choice in stepping back and kind of game planning and figuring this thing out and seeing where it went.”
Roman Reigns returned from a hiatus having spent some of the time away from the ring devising the new ‘Head of the Table’ iteration of the Roman Reigns character.
Reigns is set to square off against Brock Lesnar in the highly anticipated main event of WrestleMania 38 on the second night, WrestleMania Sunday (April 3.)
