Despite that, WWE is willing to give the modern era “People’s Champ” another chance. On Talking Smack, Reigns’ Special Counsel, Paul Heyman, offered a rematch to Daniel Bryan. However, he had one condition – it should happen inside the steel cage.

The official announcement stated, “If Bryan won, he would get his Universal Title Match at WWE Fastlane. If he lost, however, he had to acknowledge Reigns as The Head of the Table and the best competitor ever. Bryan accepted the offer with the condition that the rematch is in a Steel Cage to assure a clear winner.”

Bryan felt like a failure when two ‘part-timers’, Edge and Reigns, made it to WrestleMania while he lay on the ground. This Friday, he aims to turn things around for the better.

Roman Reigns reacts to SmackDown’s Steel Cage match

Following the official announcement, Reigns shared his thoughts on the Steel Cage match. Reigns, who has emerged out of his recent cage matches as a winner, thinks Bryan will “end up in the same place. On the ground. Knocked out.”

Reigns is referring to something Bryan pointed out on the talk show. On Talking Smack, Bryan expressed his disappointment at missing WrestleMania.

“You have two guys in the main event of WrestleMania who have wrestled a total of three matches this year,” he pointed out. “In the last eight days, I have wrestled more matches than the two of those men combined.

“On Sunday (Elimination Chamber), I sat on the ground while two men — who’ve wrestled only three matches this year – are going to main event WrestleMania. I failed myself. So, if you wanna ask how it felt to win the Elimination Chamber for the third time, it didn’t feel good.”

However, he is not putting himself on the back burner. He is going to reclaim his legacy as he defeats Uso and then Reigns. You can watch the Talking Smack segment below –
