WWE Hall Of Famer Edge is on his way to WrestleMania after his Royal Rumble win. Following a tricep injury, his career was in sheer jeopardy but he defied all the odds and made a triumphant return at the Men’s Rumble match, earlier this year to win the entire melee. Thus, he punched his ticket to the Biggest Event of Them All.

In one of the most shocking incidents in the history of professional wrestling, Edge was forced to retire from competition due to a neck injury back in 2011. Now that he’s back, he must be entitled to receive some big-time matches, down the road. While speaking on The Steve Dangle Podcast, he was asked which WWE Superstar he always wanted to face while in that retirement phase.

Interestingly, the Rated-R Superstar revealed that he wanted to face Roman Reigns for years. Edge noted on a time when he and Christian have started a podcast in 2016. At that time, Roman was getting a lot of negative heat from the fans but the veteran never understood the reason as The Big Dog always has a lot of talent.

“Roman Reigns. For years I was saying- especially when Jay [Christian] and I had our podcast, he was getting all kinds of flack and I never understood it because I know how talented that guy is. I could see the guy that was in there that wasn’t allowed to come out character-wise. So he was a guy that I always saw and was like ‘Man, what I could do with that guy.”

If plans remain intact then it’s certain that the fantasy warfare between Edge and Roman Reigns is happening, this year. Reports from several sources have suggested that the Rumble winner will be challenging Roman Reigns for the Universal Title at WrestleMania 37. FastLane is the last stop that can alter the plans.

One of the major reasons behind Edge challenging Reigns at WrestleMania 37 is over the fact that there aren’t any credible babyface challengers available on the SmackDown roster for the champion. So, a challenger from Raw that is the Ultimate Opportunist will have to be borrowed for the blue brand. The storyline is likely to commence from next month onward.
