WWE should have removed Roman from the show the moment this situation became a pandemic, with his compromised immune system Roman is very wise in making the call to self isolate. 

Trouble is it leaves WWE in a predicament with a shortage of top tier opponents for Goldberg, off the top of my head there is Sheamus, Jeff Hardy and Braun Strowman who are not currently booked, I guess there is also the option of using someone from NXT or reshuffling some of the current matches, I would prefer them to not use The Fiend but I guess there would be the option of making Cena/Fiend into a triple-threat with Goldberg. 

They could of course just have Goldberg bulldoze through a mid-carder like Baron Corbin or Dolph Ziggler, out of the available Smackdown talent I would choose Sheamus, I guess Strowman is the logical choice in terms of status but I think Sheamus has a better shot of producing a watchable match with Goldberg.

That sucks. As if Rey Mysterio hasn't missed enough WrestleManias already due to injury and whatnot. However, I am glad Angel Garza got on the card. 

I read on a rumor sheet that WWE is deliberately sending out false results of WrestleMania matches just to throw people off. That was actually reported by that Tom Colohue guy that used to post here. If WWE was doing that it wouldn't surprise me. 

Certainly doesn't feel like a WrestleMania day.

Reports are suggesting Strowman substituted for Reigns, I guess it makes sense as Braun is a marquee name who wasn't booked in a match. My guess is Goldberg will go over in a short match, at least in the current climate having a very part time World Champion is no issue. I would imagine WWE will simply keep the strap on Goldberg until the next opportunity to have the match with Roman. 

It's weird to think Wrestlemania has now been recorded and no spoilers have been leaked due to the closed sets. Its weird but refreshing, the pre-taped format is smart to allow for post-show editing and of course it was vital to adhere to the lockdown regulations.

If WWE really wanted to be tricky and prevent spoilers, they would record each match with 2 different outcomes. Then only Vince and the video editor would be the only ones to know who really wins. 


Edit:

The Miz, Asuka and Cesaro are also among those that did not work the Mania tapings. Miz was reportedly sick with flu-like symptoms and barred from the Performance Center. No work on the others (yet). 

Edit 2:

Andrade missed his Mania taping with a rib injury.

WWE confirmed that Asuka and Cesaro worked the Mania tapings, so whatever else will take place after that.

It's pretty vague but it seems all that's confirmed so far is that Roman Reigns Andrade and The Miz did not work the Wrestlemania tapings. Its said that Braun Strowman replaced Reigns and Morrison may be working his tag match solo. Apparently Andrade was replaced with Austin Theory in his match.

But then they would play the wrong one like they played the wrong (also pre-recorded) Ravishing Rick Rude interview at SummerSlam 1989.

I saw a report that apparently they taped their segments earlier than originally planned. Which is why it some thought they missed the show.

Meltzer and others are reporting that there's major heat on Miz for showing up at the PC sick. And that Miz coming in while sick was the final straw that made Roman withdraw from the show.

Miz coming in while sick was stupid he doesnt know if he has rhe virus he put everyone else in danger by being there  it makes me wonder who else ie coming in sick regardless of the dangers of the virus. 

It might be a blessing in disguise that Roman has pulled out maybe they have Braun come in win the belt wnd have w decent reign with it  assuming they stop production for a bit.
Shiz for PB

The good news: Dolph Ziggler finally gets his WrestleMania singles match. 

The bad news: It's in an empty arena and under horrendous circumstances.
