SmackDown Results: Edge attacked, Top Champion returns
Edge kicked off SmackDown saying his future match at WrestleMania was up in the air until next Sunday at Fastlane, where Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns would face-off for the Universal Title. The 2021 Royal Rumble winner mentioned Bryan’s promo from last week where he said he loved to compete and perform more regularly than Edge, at least in the last 10 years.
The Rated-R Superstar said he may have been out of action for a long time but back in the day, he used to perform multiple times a week with legends like The Undertaker and Batista. Daniel Bryan walked out and said he had ‘infinite respect’ for Edge but this could be the last time he gets an opportunity like this.
Edge made it clear that he was sure that he was better than Bryan in the ring.
