As seen during Friday night’s WWE SmackDown broadcast, it was announced that Goldberg will be defending his WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman at WrestleMania 36. It was kind of weird as no reason was announced for the change. They just aired a graphic with Michael Cole doing the voiceover (see below).
We reported last week here on eWn that Reigns pulled out of his match with Goldberg because of health concerns related to the coronavirus. Reigns’ past issues with leukemia led to the decision to replace him with Braun Strowman.
WWE WrestleMania 36 airs Saturday and Sunday on WWE Network.
