When Edge won the 2021 Royal Rumble match, he had the opportunity to challenge any championship he wanted in the main event of WrestleMania 37. When he won, the WWE Championship was held by Drew McIntyre, the man who will now be challenging for the championship at this year’s WrestleMania.
Ultimately, Edge decided to go with SmackDown’s WWE Universal Championship, currently held by Roman Reigns. Despite this, while speaking with Sportskeeda, Drew McIntyre says he also wants a dream match against Royal Rumble 2021 winner Edge.
“I can’t wait for it to happen. I’ve been waiting a very long time. I’ve to say I’m a little disappointed he didn’t choose Drew McIntyre and the WWE Championship as the match. It was pointed out recently that it was his first match on SmackDown in about 10 years. His last match was with a young Drew McIntyre.”
“I look back to that time and how different things were. Like he was the Heavyweight Champion. He was on top of the world. I would have done anything to get myself a title shot and then you fast forward to the present day with Edge making his return. I’m the WWE Champion. I’m on top of the world and he would have done anything to get himself a WWE Championship shot. So, the story writes itself. We have a lot of history together. It’s going to be great when it happens.”
Drew McIntyre was actually Edge’s final television opponent during a 2011 episode of Friday Night SmackDown. Edge finally changed that when he competed against Randy Orton after the 2021 Royal Rumble event on an episode of Monday Night Raw.
WrestleZone will have live coverage of both nights of WrestleMania 37.
