‘The Ultimate Opportunist’ Edge returned in fairytale fashion and won the Royal Rumble after being forced to retire due to a neck injury in 2011. He went on to challenge Reigns at Mania after a long build-up and is yet to get the better of the Universal Champion. 

Daniel Bryan forced his way into this match to make it a Triple Threat after proving himself time and again, breaking through the challenge of Jey Uso (Roman’s bodyguard). 

This was one of the most anticipated matches of WrestleMania 37, making it to the main event of Night 2. There was never a more suspenseful moment than the three staring each other down at the center of the ring. 

Roman Reigns and Edge hit each other with Spears simultaneously!

Roman Reigns immediately used the ‘No Disqualification’ stipulation to his advantage and sent Bryan and Edge outside the ring only to get ambushed by Jey Uso. However, the two managed to overcome the bodyguard at last and turned their attention to the Champion again. The match immediately got physical and all three Superstars went through the brutality.

Daniel Bryan pushed Edge and Reigns to the limit

Edge, Reigns, and Bryan all had moments with each other and got to test the best and worst moves in the ring. The climax of the match was reached when Edge and Reigns met each other, eye-to-eye, and finally clashed. The two caught each other in the perfect moment and hit Spears at the same time only to collide on the shoulders.

Daniel Bryan took advantage of this and went straight for the Yes! Lock on both Superstars in succession. However, it was broken both times by each opponent.

Roman Reigns was soon sent through hell after Edge and Daniel Bryan both caught him in a Yes! Lock, doubling his pain. However, the two fought each other over the tap and broke the hold. Edge even managed to finish off Reigns with a Spear but Bryan pulled the referee out of the ring before the third count!
