Ahead of WrestleMania 36 airing on the WWE Network this coming Saturday and Sunday, Paul "Triple H" Levesque made an appearance on SportsCenter last night:
ESPN's John Anderson asked Triple H about Goldberg vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania having to be altered. Triple H said he didn't want to get into the specifics of WrestleMania because it's a must-watch event, but working the show is voluntary and any talent or crew who think there's a risk to themselves or someone around them don't have to be there and nothing will be held against them. He said WWE doesn't want to take chances in this situation.
Triple H also brought up Reigns having a pre-existing condition that would make him more susceptible to something and said it's understandable that he wouldn't wrestle at WrestleMania.
WWE has yet to officially announce that Goldberg vs. Reigns is off the show or reveal Goldberg's new opponent. The tapings for WrestleMania took place last week.
Triple H said they've had very few talent who have had issues or chosen not to be there.
During the interview, Triple H also discussed the precautions WWE has taken due to the coronavirus pandemic, the difficulty of wrestling without a live audience, and WWE wanting to continue entertaining people during this time.
Triple H's appearance on SportsCenter took place after WrestleMania 32 aired on ESPN last night. WrestleMania 35 will air on the channel at 3 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday (April 5).
