In the second evening dedicated to Wrestlemania 37, aired as the first one, from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida, it was staged as the closing of the card of the most anticipated event of the year in the entire pro-wrestling world, the much talked about triple threat match valid for the Universal title, currently alongside Roman Reigns.
After winning the Royal Rumble, the Rated R Superstar Edge in fact wanted to challenge the Tribal Chief of Smackdown, initially confirming the contest that was supposed to be a simple single match, which however quickly turned into a triple threat match, thanks to the intervention of the former WWE Champion, Daniel Bryan, who after making Roman Reigns surrender to his finisher in Fastlane, without the referee noticing it, clamored for a new titled rematch.
In the end, the WWE officials decided to broadcast a three-way match at Wrestlemania and not just a single match between Edge and Reigns, with fans who were almost all on the side of the Rated R Superstar or the leader of Yes Movement, but these factions have both been left dry-mouthed, for the result arrived in ppv.
In a match that started in a great way, which was then lost for a few minutes with a little slow pace, in the end the three great WWE athletes transformed the contest into a masterpiece of storytelling, going to tell a story with shots of sensational scene, such as a double Crossface performed on the champion, by both his opponents, simultaneously.
After Edge started hitting Bryan with his famous Con-chair-to, the umpteenth interruption of the match by Jey Uso tipped the scales in favor of the champion, who with Spear and sediate managed to make his way to victory, going to pin both of his opponents, now annihilated by his attacks.
After months of reign, Roman Reigns manages to triumph even on the most important night of the year, thanks to the fundamental help of his cousin, who has done nothing but confirm that Reigns is the true Tribal Chief of the company.
