Roman Reigns is the Head of the Table, but fans in Tampa were unable to see the Universal Champion. There were plans for him to perform at the live event over the weekend, but those changed as he was pulled from the show.

Sunday’s Tampa live event did not see the Tribal Chief perform. The main event match was changed during the show to Drew McIntyre and Sheamus vs The Usos instead.

It was not noted why Roman Reigns was pulled from the live event. Seth Rollins previously revealed his own positive test for COVID-19, but it was not confirmed that the Tribal Chief is positive as well.

Due to Reigns’ history with leukemia, he is immunocompromised. He missed a good chunk of time when the pandemic first started as a precautionary reason. We can only hope that they were being safe with Roman Reigns and he did not test positive for the virus.


Tommaso Ciampa vs. Pete Dunne was added to the live event to make up for those stars who could not be there. It is not 100% confirmed that all stars who missed the show are positive for COVID-19, because they could have been left off the show as a precautionary reason.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
