Roman Reigns decided not to work WrestleMania. The match didn’t happen, but they already had SmackDown filmed. This caused a big change.
In the middle of SmackDown this week, WWE randomly and very casually announced that Goldberg will defend the WWE Universal Title against Braun Strowman at WrestleMania 36.
There was no explanation given at all. The graphic was displayed on the screen and the match was announced as they were doing a run-down of matches for the show of shows.
Triple H said that WWE had something unique planned for this one. It looks like they exceeded expectations this time.
