Roman Reigns Wants To Return To WWE But Reveals Why He Can't

It has been well over a month now since Roman Reigns was seen, or even referenced, on WWE television. Pulling out of his WWE Universal Championship match at WrestleMania 36 with Bill Goldberg just days before the event due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the card was changed and Braun Strowman emerged victorious over Goldberg. Since that time, an edict was allegedly given for WWE to refrain from mentioning Reigns on air due to the uncertainty of the timeline for his return. The company even cut him out of a highlight package of Seth Rollins' famous Money In The Bank cash-in at WrestleMania 31.

In a new interview with TMZ, Reigns addressed his current status and how he feels about a WWE return.

"We just had two newborn twins, twin boys. They're 8 weeks old so I had to make a decision for them," Reigns said in regards to pulling out of WrestleMania. He went on to deny that that decision had anything to do with his own health and well publicized battle with leukemia.
