Goldberg Talks About Roman Reigns Missing WrestleMania Match

ewrestlingnews: Former WWE Universal Champion Goldberg joined Carcast podcast, where he spoke about Roman Reigns backing out of their WrestleMania match, and how he found out about Braun Strowman replacing him.

On Reigns backing out of the match.

“I had a change of opponents at the very last moment. You know, Roman Reigns, everybody knows he has leukemia. You know, he’s in remission and his — obviously his immune system is down. And so, I don’t know why it was even considered in the beginning, except for the fact that we’d invested time and WWE invested the money in the angle, in the match, you know.

So literally until the 23rd hour, it was still a possibility that he and I were going to wrestle. So plans kind of changed at the very last minute. I did my match with Braun. and it was possible that I could do a match with Roman again before the fifth [the night the match aired]. That obviously fell through.”

How did he find out about the news?

“You’ve seen me go through this stuff. Can you imagine me being done on Friday. My obligations were complete for the year. My second match was already wrestled. So I was literally done. So I come back here on Friday and jump on the tractor, and eat as many Bon Bons and Uncrustables and Coke, drink as many Cokes and don’t go the gym for five days. And then I get a phone call in the middle of the week that it’s still a possibility.”

Why WWE made this decision at the last second?

“Because it was still a possibility on his end that he could go through with the match. We went to the training facility in Orlando, our temperatures were taken when we walked in, the place was you know, scrubbed up and down, there were a limited amount of people in and out of the building.

It was very controlled, I mean it was as — I think what happened was, somebody was sick and Roman heard about it. They didn’t have [COVID-19], they just had the flu. But just the fact that someone was sick in those circumstances, at the end of the day he just couldn’t do it.”

His respect for Roman Reigns.

“You know, more power to him to continually want to get it done. whether that’s realistic or unrealistic from a person in his shoes are concerned. But you’ve got to love the guy because up to the 11th hour, he was still willing to do it.”

Actually we all looked forward to that epic match. But all the same, one can not blame Roman. His health comes first.
Now , WWE Network may not be happy with Roman, but he still remains a dominant force in the industry.

It was actually sad not seeing roman wrestle that day,even though braun and goldberg later pulled off one of the greatest but shortest championship fights i’ve seen in a long time.

Roman reigns is good but that leukemia has really destroyed his career and has slowed him rapidly.

He made the right decision not just for himself but for the people he loves. He knows what he is doing, he knows his body and I’d have done the same

Goldberg did well to acknowledge Reigns despite him being his rival. I think the world will be a better place if rivalry is carried out in this fashion.
