With no explanation at all, WWE has officially announced that Goldberg will no longer face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 36. He will now face off with The Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman.
The rumors were out there, but Triple H had said WWE was going to come up with a unique way to write Reigns off the show. Clearly, that didn’t happen and this is probably not the kind of unique Triple H probably meant.
Strowman was the favorite to come in and replace Reigns who pulled himself from the show due to health concerns. There were reports WWE was working quickly to try and come up with ways to explain his absence on television and took their time making the announcement, which drew the ire of many fans. And, then, for this to be how they are going to announce the change?
Whatever WWE must have had planned fell through. Just have Cole randomly say it’s Goldberg vs Braun and show a match graphic? Wow.
