Edge explains how his injury at BackLash 2020 changed WrestleMania 37 plans
At WrestleMania 37, Edge will battle Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan in a triple threat main event on Night Two. Ahead of the event, Edge has opened up about how this was not the original plan.
Speaking on a WrestleMania 37 press call, Edge revealed that his injury at Backlash 2020 scuppered the initial planned match between himself and Randy Orton.
“It seemed to change everything. It was me and Randy at WrestleMania, me and Randy at WrestleMania, me and Randy at WrestleMania, that’s what my working plan was the whole time. Until I was told that it wasn’t the company’s plan.”
“I was pretty disappointed. I really wanted to – I just felt like, the story deserved that. So when I found out that wasn’t on the dock anymore, I was like “okay, so then, what?”, and it’s worked out the way it has, which is obviously very exciting. And honestly… look, I go from thinking I’m wrestling Randy Orton at WrestleMania, which is a dream, to wrestling Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania for the Universal title. That’s a dream, too.”
Edge hit an intense promo on the SmackDown WrestleMania special
