Backstage concern over Edge looking old on WWE TV

There are now just over two weeks to WrestleMania 37, which is considered by the whole WWE Universe and in general by all wrestling fans as the event of the year for this extraordinary business. Vince McMahon's company has now fully organized the card for the two evenings of the show, which will be held in Tampa on April 10th and 11th.

In the latest Fastlane Pay Per View, however, a surprising change took place that upset the Main Event and that in fact changed the programs for the Show of the Immortals. Edge became Heel by attacking Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan at the same time and Daniel Bryan could be the big change to the Wrestlemania 37 Main Event.

As Dave Meltzer points out in the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, it is now inevitable that Daniel Bryan is the Babyface of the situation and that he can thus challenge the two opponents in the show of the Immortals.

Edge has recently returned to WWE after a long absence and has won the Royal Rumble 2021 upon his return, won after a long battle and beating Randy Orton as the last opponent. Eventually, the Canadian wrestler decided to face WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Dave Meltzer was keen to explain the reason behind this rather unexpected choice of Vince McMahon's company. The fact that Edge is a little over the years has in fact led to this program change: "A person close to the backstage told me the age issue was quite concerning with the Canadian wrestler looking older each week.

Obviously, the plot wanted to make things seem different and the only rumors that will come are about a Vince McMahon who wanted to mess up the plans a bit." Furthermore, Meltzer recalled that this storyline looks very similar to the one that led WWE Yes Man to the WWE Heavyweight Championship title at WrestleMania 30.

The ongoing storyline for the Universal Championship is strangely similar to Daniel Bryan's legendary 2014 run towards capturing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 30. Daniel Bryan doesn't have the same momentum that he had in 2014, but the former WWE Champion is not expected to be booed.

The jury is still out on how Roman Reigns will be received as there is no way to determine how the fans will react to the Tribal Chief. WrestleMania 37 will be the first show to have a relatively large audience, and people are unsure how a live crowd will greet the reigning champion.
