The Usos Give Update On Roman Reigns Following COVID-19 Diagnosis
The WWE Universal Champion was pulled from the recent Day 1 PPV
After revealing a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was pulled from Saturday’s Day 1 PPV, with his title match against Brock Lesnar cancelled as a result.
No details have emerged as to the severity of Reigns’ condition, nor how long ‘The Tribal Chief’ will be out of action for, and his cousins The Usos have spoken about Reigns’ condition, telling Sports Illustrated:
“It felt off not having ‘The Tribal Chief’ around,” said Jey Uso. “This match was for him. We represented, and he’s going to be OK. He’s home resting, and maybe playing some Call of Duty. We’re going to see him back soon.”
The Usos successfully defended their WWE SmackDown Tag team Championships against The New Day at Day 1, but admitted it was strange not having Reigns around to close the show:
“We opened the show, and we’re so used to seeing The Big Uce close the show,” added Jimmy Uso. “This pandemic is crazy, and all we want is for him to be safe and take care of himself.”
