WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns vs. Edge vs. Daniel Bryan in a Triple Threat Match took place on the second night of WrestleMania 37.
Originally, Edge was supposed to wrestle Reigns in a singles match at this show. During a conference call before the show, he talked about plans changing.
“I think in the build to Fastlane was when we were told it was going to change to a triple threat,” Edge said. “The three of us have not talked about. I think it’s an unspoken thing we all know obviously, and what’s strange about is our stories, the journey of Adam, Bryan and Joe doesn’t help further the narrative. And it doesn’t help paint one guy as the villain and one guy as the hero.
“It can muddy those waters. All of that being said, if you look at our three stories outside of the characters, I think those stories help invest in the characters more because you know what these three men have fought, scratched and clawed to get back this thing. All three of these separate journeys have thought, this is it. I know for me, this was it, so I can’t speak for them. I was done, and I was told I had no choice.
“To have three guys in the position of having to main event after those stories, I’d like to think that helps you invest in the characters even more. I think that’s helped a lot with the build because there’s a lot of real involved. There’s a lot of truth involved, and in order for a storyline to fire on all cylinders, you got to have some truthful aspects to it, for the performers to pull it off and for the performers to have it feel genuine to the audience.”
