Roman Reigns was celebrating his victory over Rey Mysterio at Hell in a Cell 2021. It was given that someone would interrupt this segment since WWE books such celebration or contract signing segments for chaos.

The common assumption was Rey and Dominik Mysterio would interrupt the segment, but no! It was The Rated-R Superstar.

Edge returned, fuelled with anger and frustration! He brutally attacked Roman Reigns and constantly banged Reigns’ head on the announcers’ table. He didn’t stop at Reigns but attacked Jimmy Uso with a spear as well.

It’s official that Roman Reigns’ next opponent will be Edge, and it’s only a matter of time before the company books them in a title match.

Roman Reigns had flattened Edge at WrestleMania 37

Earlier, when Edge returned to WWE, he was booked in a feud with Roman Reigns. However, prior to that booking, Edge won the Royal Rumble Men’s Match, which earned him the opportunity to challenge any champion of his choice at WrestleMania 37.

For weeks, he pondered over the decision. Finally, he challenged Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Now, during the same time, Reigns had beef with Daniel Bryan. Therefore, the company turned the WrestleMania 37 main event between Reigns and the Rated-R Superstar into a triple threat match.

The Tribal Chief put Bryan and Edge on top of one another and emerged victorious with a double pinfall victory.
