Roman Reigns beat Edge and Daniel Bryan in the main event of WrestleMania 37, scoring a rare double pinfall as he stacked Edge on top of Daniel Bryan for the win.
The match was featured unbelievable action storytelling, where all three stars worked feverishly to main one another. The finish came when the heel Reigns—assisted by liberal outside interference from Jey Uso—connected with a con-chair-to on both Daniel Bryan and Edge, pinning them both. This was the right decision as WWE desperately needs to get from under its past and move forward. This was a great step in that direction in what was a phenomenal match.
Roman Reigns vs. Edge vs. Daniel Bryan had a strong case for the best-built feud headed into WrestleMania.
In what was supposed to be a on-on-one match between Roman Reigns and Edge, WWE’s storytelling got away from it a bit when it moved forward with the confounding decision fo turning Edge heel. Third-wheel Daniel Bryan went on to suffer two losses to Roman Reigns en route to WrestleMania, but he now finds himself in a similar position to his lovable loser role that vaulted him to superstardom at WrestleMania 30.
Anticipation for this match grew as WrestleMania 37 approached as each Superstar in this match had a legit case to win. The uncertainty as to who the overwhelming favorite was added to the intrigue of a Triple Threat that truly earned its main event spot. As of this writing, Edge is the slight favorite with the 2021 Royal Rumble winner holding a slight -150 edge. Daniel Bryan, meanwhile, found himself in a familiar role as the biggest underdog at +290.
Each of the three combatants stuck the landing on the go-home show for WrestleMania 37 Friday night on SmackDown. Bryan opened the show calling the match “the biggest match of my career,” while Edge followed up with an all-time WrestleMania promo, deftly calling out Roman Reigns being Samoan Edge. As Edge astutely pointed out, Reigns started out in a three-man group, entered through the crowd and used the Spear. The WWE Universal champion closed out the show with his signature soft-spoken promo, discussing how his triumphs are designed to help his entire bloodline rather than just himself.
