Roman Reigns opted out of WrestleMania last year over COVID concerns, but with Mania only days away — and fans set to partially fill the venue — the WWE Superstar tells TMZ Sports he’s NOT worried about his safety.
WrestleMania 37 — goin’ down April 10 and 11 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa — is always a huge deal … but it’s even bigger this year cause WWE’s allowing 25k fans back in the building each night for the first time in over a year.
We straight-up asked Roman if he believes WWE is doing enough to keep him, his fellow wrestlers and the fans safe.
His answer … yes, Vince McMahon and his team are bending over backward to ensure the event goes off without a hitch.
“I think our safety precautions are second to none,” Roman says.
“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.”
Remember, Roman — who battled and beat leukemia —bowed out of WM 36 last April … at the time telling us he didn’t want to risk exposing his newborn baby to coronavirus.
But, things have changed, and Reigns says WWE’s doing everything they can to keep everyone healthy, while also allowing passionate wrestling fans a chance to let loose.
“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!”
