It’s one of the big ones. We are now a few days removed from WrestleMania 37 and that means it is time to both look forward but also discuss WrestleMania in quite a high level of details. There was a lot of material to cover from the show and that is not a bad thing whatsoever. As usual, the main event was the part of the show that is going to get the most attention and now we have a bit more on the match.

The main event of the second night of WrestleMania 37 saw Universal Champion Roman Reigns successfully defending the title against both Daniel Bryan and Edge. The match had been set up for several weeks now with Edge winning the Royal Rumble and then costing Bryan his shot against Reigns at Fastlane. That set up several stories for WrestleMania and it took more than one person to make those stories work.

According to Fightful Select, Paul Heyman played a huge role in setting the match up, as he does with most of Reigns’ matches. Reigns was always the planned winner for the match and the finish of the match was not one that was changed close to the time of the show. Heyman, Edge and Bryan all contributed to putting the match together. Bryan’s addition to the match was not confirmed until the week of Fastlane in March.

It was a heck of a match. Check out how we got there and the match itself:

Opinion: You can definitely tell how much effort was put into this match as they made all of the parts of the story work out very well in the end. There were three people coming together to make the match work and that is one of the most difficult things to do, especially on such a huge stage. It was a good main event and WrestleMania worthy, so well done to everyone involved.
