Roman Reigns left the Performance Center before his match against Goldberg at WrestleMania 36 due to COVID-19 concerns, causing the show to be re-written with Braun Strowman replacing him in the Universal Championship match. He hasn’t been on mentioned on WWE television since, even being edited out of a video on Raw this week. Now though, he has spoken to TMZ about the situation and explained he is staying home for his family.
We just had two newborn twins, twin boys, they’re 8 weeks old, so I had to make a decision for them.
My children are gonna be the ones to represent my name and carry our name forward. So I had to make that choice for them, to protect them being so young.
I want to be out there. I want to get back to work. I want to get back to normal, but I just feel like I have an obligation not only to my family and myself but to my community. Roman Reigns
