WWE SmackDown ended in chaos, typical of any contract signing segment. Edge, Jey Uso, Roman Reigns, and Daniel Bryan came to blows after a stunning match got confirmed for next week’s SmackDown. Edge will wrestle his first one-on-one match on SmackDown in eleven years against none other than Jey Uso.

Before the match became official, Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan had a peaceful yet intense contract signing. Bryan declared he would make the Tribal Chief submit, just like he made Jey Uso submit inside the steel cage last week. This prompted Uso to lose his temper and get in Bryan’s face, after tossing the table out of the ring.

Jey declared himself the special enforcer for Reigns vs Bryan at Fastlane, but Edge had something else in mind. The Rated-R Superstar challenged Jey to a match for next week, the winner becoming the special guest enforcer for the Universal Title match at Fastlane.

Edge asked Adam Pearce if it was a good idea, and Pearce responded by booking the match for next week.

Edge stormed the ring and went right after Roman Reigns, while Bryan and Uso brawled in the opposite corner. Once he dispatched Uso, Bryan ran and tried to take out Roman, but Edge shoved him off. An irate Bryan then delivered a running knee to the man who will most likely be in his corner for the Universal Title match.

This flaring of tempers doesn’t bode well for Reigns, Uso, Bryan and Edge. The brawl was entertaining to watch, but it casts a doubt about Edge and Roman Reigns’ WrestleMania plans.

Will Edge turn on Daniel Bryan?

Turning on a popular star like Daniel Bryan won’t make any Superstar loved or even favoured by a fan. However, Edge’s immense popularity overcomes the sadness fans will undoubtedly feel, and this is a decision WWE has to make.

By turning on Bryan, costing him the championship and helping Reigns win, WWE can show how much Edge wants to beat and humiliate Roman Reigns. The Tribal Chief might make quick work of the Rated-R Superstar, but let’s not get our hopes up.

We have to wait to find out on the next episode of SmackDown. If Edge wins, what will happen to Daniel Bryan’s odds at Fastlane? Will Edge take the running knee too personally, or is it water under the bridge?
