The main event of Night Two of WrestleMania 37 saw Roman Reigns defend his WWE Universal Championship against Daniel Bryan and WWE Hall Of Famer Edge in a triple threat match. Ultimately, Roman Reigns came out on top and successfully retained his title.
However, it seems one of its participants didn’t want to be in the match. While speaking to BT Sport, Daniel Bryan revealed that he didn’t want to be part of the main event as Bryan had no intention of getting in the way of Edge’s comeback story. Bryan believed that he shouldn’t have been in the match at all.
“I kept trying to get out of it too. You know, this is a heck of a story, ten years to do the day that he was forced to retire.’ It was shortly after Elimination Chamber, in the build to the singles match I had with Roman at Fastlane, it was like, ‘this is going to be a stick Daniel Bryan in here thing.’ Not to say that I didn’t want to be part of it, I just thought it would be such a strong main event, just the two of them. WrestleMania 30, it felt like with the way the crowd was reacting with Batista and Randy, they kind of needed me in there.
This one didn’t feel like it needed me. It’s all water under the bridge now, but maybe that was in the back of my mind, ‘hey, I’m not sure I should be in this match,’ is why I had this weird reaction to actually being out there.”
Daniel Bryan had previously revealed that he is currently trying to wrestle in promotions outside of WWE. With his WWE contract is expiring soon, we will have to see what Daniel Bryan will do next.
