WWE SmackDown star Daniel Bryan has spoken about his involvement in the Roman Reigns vs Edge storyline heading into WrestleMania.
Edge won the Royal Rumble is set to challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania, but Reigns first defends against Bryan at Fastlane this coming Sunday.
Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Bryan said:
“The hard thing about the idea of a triple threat is that Edge was forced to retire almost 10 years ago, and him coming back is a really powerful story. What I think the story needed more than anything else was to make the WrestleMania match between Roman and Edge not a sure thing. We’ve cast doubt on that. The idea of me versus Edge at WrestleMania is pretty cool. Two guys forced to retire, and now we’re both back.
“All that’s to say, I don’t think Edge and Roman need Daniel Bryan involved in the story. What I do think is exciting for the fans is that now there is a lot of doubt about the match you’re going to see at WrestleMania, and I think that’s really fun. Will it be me and Edge? Or me in a triple-threat? Or Edge and Roman? The more passion you drum up for this, the better it is for everybody.”
On tonight’s episode of SmackDown, Edge will face Jey Uso to determine which of them will be ‘special enforcer’ for the Bryan vs Reigns match on Sunday.
In the same interview, Bryan said the match with Reigns will be a “violent professional wrestling match”.
