Roman Reigns opted out of working for WWE during the COVID-19 pandemic due to concerns about spreading the virus to his family.
His last match was a dark match at the February 28 episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown, where he went over King Corbin via pinfall. Prior to that, he went over Corbin in 12:59 in a steel cage match at WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia.
Reigns has not spent his time away eating cheeseburgers. He has hit the gym hard and it shows. Check out the following video he posted on Instagram over the weekend:

Shoulders week 1 #Y3T. Seated Side Laterals, Rep range 12-16. Definitely getting stronger and building muscle but not quite where I want to be. The grind continues as I follow this fitness Journey/Lifestyle. Hope this finds everyone well and in good health. Shout out to Coach @neil_yoda_hill1 , wishing u a speedy recovery my friend! Stay safe and God bless! ??.
Reigns is on record as to saying his decision to stay away from WWE during this time is nothing against the company but a personal decision to keep his family safe. WWE has provided all talent and staff the option of not working during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It remains to be seen when Reigns will return but when he does, he’ll still be booked in the top of the card.
