What happened during the Fastlane Pay per View Main Event could have important and sensational implications in view of Wrestlemania 37. The victory of WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns over Daniel Bryan came in a very controversial way with the challenger who is was hit by Edge while sitting down while he had made the WWE Tribal Chief surrender with the Yes Lock (this without the presence of a referee).
The passage to Heel of the Rated-R Superstar practically changes everything and apparently the Main Event between Roman Reigns and Edge for Wrestlemania 37 should turn into a Triple Threat Match between the champion, Edge and Daniel Bryan.
In the last episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, the well-known colleague Dave Meltzer clarified the reason for this choice and why Vince McMahon has in fact upset the main event of the Show of the Immortals. The Chairman of the company for some time apparently was dissatisfied with the Wrestlemania 37 card which, although unofficial, had already been outlined for many days.
Meltzer explained the reasons for this choice in this way, here are his words: "Vince McMahon wanted to twist the show's card, the truth is that he wanted changes and was not satisfied. Overall it became clear that he wanted to change the Main Event.
Everyone on the creative team wanted to change something and there were several ideas, but most of them weren't appreciated by the Chairman, so McMahon decided he wanted a three-way meeting. We are talking about three high caliber wrestlers, maybe McMahon believed that the two-person clash would confuse and mess up the match, instead so Roman Reigns is the champion, Tribal Chief of the WWE, now Edge is back as Heel and then there is Daniel Bryan, highly acclaimed by fans and which certainly can generate uncertainty.
So that's why we came up with this unusual transformation of the Main Event "
