Wrestletalk is reporting that there is bad press (in wrestling it’s called heat) with Roman Reigns. When the pandemic started, WWE reportedly told wrestlers that there would be no consequences if they decided not to perform. Reigns, who was set to face Goldberg for the Universal title, pulled out.
Reigns is a two-time cancer survivor and is at risk for the coronavirus. Ever since he has pulled out, he hasn’t been mentioned on television. Now, he is being edited out of campaigns and videos.
The ratings continue to dip due to the pandemic.
WWE may be calling back some of their big names such as Becky Lynch, AJ Styles, and Randy Orton, in an effort to raise those ratings.
