Wrestlemania 36 went through some major changes due to the coronavirus pandemic and included two days of matches held at different locations. Amongst the main event caliber matches was Roman Reigns vs. Goldberg for the Universal Championship. However, a few days before the PPV, it was revealed that Roman had opted out of the match due to health concerns. Reigns is immunocompromised, as he battled with leukemia and hence, did not want to put his health at risk. Eventually, Braun Strowman replaced the 34-year-old wrestler.

However, there were some fans who were extremely critical of Roman's decision to opt out of Wrestlemania 36 and in a recent interview with PWInsider, when good friend and former WWE employee Jon Moxley was asked about it, the AEW World Champion shared, "Dude, I mean, this is unprecedented times! This is crazy! I mean you hear about all these other eras and people went through the Great Depression and wars and all that stuff. I grew up in the 90s so our generation has never had to deal with any kind of struggle or tough choices or anything like this, to this degree."

"So, it's crazy that we're actually living through something like this. And I would not judge anybody's decision about the things they do. I think, in his situation, it was definitely the smart thing to do. And I'd support that decision 100%. It was the right move," Jon concluded to PWInsider.

Roman made a good decision. Whoever is critical about this needs to understand that he has defeated leukemia twice in his life now, and people should understand the seriousness of this disease. And Roman Reigns, god bless you brother, you made the right decision. Believe That.

Roman has done the best decision in life, his health cannot be compare with sports, he can only participate in Wrestling when he is alive. Mr. Vince McMahon Roman has supporters Worldwide, other Companies like AEW will accept him. What are you going to do for him after death?. pls allow this Young man to manage his health and bring up his Children. Whether, you like it not, Roman is a star in your Company. K.k.y Nigeria.

For everyone who blasts WWE for terrible content and how they hate Reigns, I just don't get anymore. You either love it or hate it. Been watching wrestling since 1979 and I try not to miss it even in the state it's in right now. I always want to see what is going to happen next. But Roman has a family and this 2020 pandemic is unreal. I would rather see a healthy and safe person than a person who will be sick because they thought they owed the company something. So no I do not blame him, I blame WWE for still putting on a show. Just run Attitude Era repeats and watch the re ratings soar.

Roman made the right call especially considering the fact that he only called off his participation because The Miz went to the venue and he was not well. A reasonable thinking person will not want his life endangered further by sharing space with someone that's not well. I have respiratory issues, so I'm keeping away from my work place that's been compromised by a patient who tested positive for Covid-19

He did the best thing for his family and himself however with that being said he is paid millions of dollars which otherwise he wouldn't get anywhere else so the least he can do is to be there for them at least for one match.

Yea just for him to risk his health competing in a 5 min match with Goldberg. At the end of the day, you have to do what's best for you and your family. Roman made the right decision.

He did the right thing since he have leukemia and have a weak immune system. I know he did right because I have thyroid cancer and I have a weak immune too.
