    Wrestlemania Generic WWE Wrestlemania 36 - Universal Champion Goldberg vs Braun Strowman

    Braun Strowman will challenge Goldberg for the Universal Championship at the unprecedented, two-night edition of The Showcase of the Immortals, putting The Monster Among Men within distance of the World Title victory that has eluded him for years. The highly anticipated title bout also gives Goldberg the opportunity to score his most titanic conquest since trouncing Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series 2016.

    Strowman has come close to the Universal Championship on several occasions, most notably a series of singles and multi-man matches back when Lesnar held the championship, a narrowly thwarted Money in the Bank cash-in and a tight loss to Seth Rollins. Since then, Strowman has rebounded to win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and record a short stint with the Intercontinental Championship, but the World Title has remained beyond his reach until now.

    The dominance of Goldberg, however, has remained absolute. Ever since he was announced as the surprise challenger to then-champion “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt, the WWE Hall of Famer has shown little signs of slowing down, plowing through the monstrous titleholder to become Universal Champion for the second time. As imposing as Strowman is, there’s no small chance he’ll simply be a bigger notch than most on Goldberg’s belt, but a notch all the same.

    Tune in to The Only WrestleMania Too Big for Just One Night, streaming Saturday and Sunday at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.

    This could be good. Great even. Reigns lacks the physicality that Lesnar has, but a match with a similar formula to the Mania 33 Universal Title match could work here. My one wish would be minimal superman punches from Reigns. Only because I loathe that move.

    Roman Reigns Out Of WrestleMania 36 Match

    Posted By: Ryan Satin March 26, 2020
    Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Roman Reigns will not be part of the WWE Universal Championship match at WrestleMania 36 as planned.

    Sources with knowledge of the situation tell us Reigns expressed to WWE that he didn’t feel comfortable doing anymore of the Performance Center shows during the coronavirus pandemic because he’s immunocompromised from his battle with leukemia and didn’t want to risk his health.

    We’re told WWE honored his request and he will now be replaced by someone else in the match against Goldberg, though it’s unclear who at this time.

    As we previously reported, Stephanie McMahon detailed the many safety precautions the company is currently taking while filming shows during the coronavirus pandemic. This includes taking people’s temperatures and making sure they’re in perfect health before entering the WWE Performance Center, as well as not allowing anyone inside who has been out of the country (or in touch/contact with anybody who has been out of the country).

    WrestleMania is scheduled to air April 4 and 5 on WWE Network and PPV.
    This certainly changes things. I don’t really blame him at all tbh, can’t knock the man for not wanting to risk his health.

    That's good news. Reigns should stay safe, stay home until all that shit is through. He doesn't have to risk his health for anyone. Same goes for every other wrestler imo.

    Can't help but wonder who will end up challenging Goldberg after all.

    I give Roman massive respect for putting his health over this company. He's a high risk individual with his cancer history, he doesn't need to risk his life for Vince McMahon

    Was he previously comfortable with the situation? He should've been automatically ruled out for his condition.

    Wouldn't be shocked for this to turn into Goldberg vs. Shane.

    It's also their opportunity to do Goldberg/Riddle now

    Happy to see this. Glad he's putting his safety first.

    Really, I have no idea why they haven't just postponed it.

    Doing it recorded...Over two days...With no audience...Oof.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    Roman should have been well away and isolated anyway, so i'm glad he's made a stand for his own health.

    As for opponents err Strowman? Throw Goldberg into the Fiend/Cena thing?

    Roman's replacement is:

    Spoiler:

    Braun


    I'm torn on this. Goldberg going over Braun would further cement him as a dead main event guy. Braun should go over but his first world title win in an empty arena would be underwhelming.

    Why, exactly, is it going to be terrible?

    The empty arena? The card? Something else I’m not thinking of at the moment?

    The fact that the show is airing at all, in these troubled times, should be enough for even the most staunch cynic to put their feelings aside and be thankful. Harbouring negativity towards wrestling at this point seems so asinine to me that I’m almost shocked to see it. Yet, at the same time, I take an odd sort of solace in knowing that, even now, wrestling fans still find something to complain about. It’s comforting to know that things will never change.

    Re: WWE Wrestlemania 36 - Universal Champion Goldberg vs Roman Reigns

    I mean, I thought the Mania was going to be horrible before all this happened. The WWE as a whole is a really terrible company, in terms of their creative product, but also their morality. The WWE has botched the build of every single major match for the show, so yeah, it was going to already be terrible.

    It's not even just the empty stadium that takes away from Mania - WWE is damned if they do, damned if they don't, probably - because they either do it in an empty arena, or they try to hold off for maybe months and it's all a mess. I get that. But here's the thing: everything I'm seeing is that the VAST majority of the talent don't want to go ahead with the show. They don't want a taped WrestleMania, and/or an empty WrestleMania. But it's still happening because Vince McMahon is King God.

    Just because the world's going to shit doesn't mean I'm going to just blindly be happy that the WWE is still giving us some kind of product. If it's something good, I'm going to be entertained. If it's shit, I'm still going to call shit, shit. I don't see why that needs to change.

    Spoiler:

    Honestly this could make Braun a huge monster heel again if they wanted.

    Have him attack and destroy roman on smackdown, even if its just a shot of roman on the ground covered in blood or just unconscious and have them say hes no longer medically cleared.

    Braun can come out and say if Roman can call his shots and demand a shot so can he and thats why he destroyed the big dog.

    Mania comes and Braun just annihilates Goldberg and takes the belt.

    I’m not saying you should blindly be happy. However, if you’ve got time to be upset with pro wrestling in 2020, congratulations on living a charmed existence.
