Roman Reigns drops out of WrestleMania match

Hours before his WrestleMania match was set to be taped, WWE star Roman Reigns decided he will not compete against Bill Goldberg due to concerns over his health. Reigns is immunocompromised after battling leukemia twice and is no longer comfortable competing and being around other people while this pandemic is ongoing. A replacement - if any - has not been announced.

Instead of airing live with thousands in attendance, WrestleMania was taped over the past two days at the company's Performance Center in Orlando with no crowd and essential personnel only, and will be broadcast as a two-night event on April 4 and 5. (All WWE programming between now and April 8 has been taped.)

Reigns joins Dana Brooke and Rey Mysterio as talent no longer participating in the event. Both Brooke and Mysterio presented symptoms, but neither are confirmed to have the virus.
