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 the WWE Tribal Chief surrender with 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 announced matches for WrestleMania 37 so far
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." The COVID-19 pandemic prevented WWE from having fans in attendance for last year's WrestleMania. However, WWE has decided to allow a limited number of fans for WrestleMania 37 and are taking the necessary health and safety precautions to do so.
The company has already launched ticket sales for the event and is expecting to host at least 45,000 fans per night. Having fans back at WrestleMania 37 is a huge boost for WWE. This could be a sign that the company will slowly transition back into having crowds at events. It will certainly be great for the WWE Superstars who have been missing the fan interaction.
