The original belief was that Reigns took time off due to concerns about his immune system being weakened as a result of his battle with leukemia. However, he later clarified that he took time off because his wife gave birth to twins and him wanting to be with his family.
50,000 fans in total will be in attendance at WrestleMania 37. This marks the first time that WWE has held a main roster show with fans. However, the WWE Universal Champion isn’t worried about this while the world still deals with the COVID-19 pandemic.
"I think our safety precautions are second to none," Reigns stated to TMZ. "We'll have the pods to create the social distancing, masks will be required. We'll be giving out masks for those who are forgetful. We'll have, I believe, cashless concessions, so we're gonna create an opportunity where everybody's gonna be as safe as they could be. We're trying to create that level of safety for everybody, but also trying to create an atmosphere and an experience they'll never forget."
Reigns will defend the Universal Title against Daniel Bryan and Edge in a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania 37 - Night 2. You can watch the entire interview by clicking on the player below:
