• Backstage News On When Vince McMahon Decided To Change Major WrestleMania 37 Match
As we noted earlier, the originally announced Roman Reigns vs. Edge Universal Championship match at WrestleMania 37 is now going to turn into a Triple Threat Match with Daniel Bryan being added to it, after what happened in the main event of Fastlane 2021.
According to Fightful Select, Vince McMahon made the decision to add Bryan to the Universal Title match at WrestleMania 37 in the last week on February.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Bryan isn’t being added to the match because Vince fears that fans in attendance at WrestleMania 37 will cheer a heel Reigns over a babyface Edge.
“I thought that it was because they were afraid that Roman Reigns was going to get cheered over Edge and f*ck up the match, but in fact, that isn’t the reason. I thought for sure that was the reason. That’s not the reason.
So Daniel Bryan is in there and Edge is a heel which is, I guess what he wanted.”
