It is expected that WWE Universal Championship triple threat bout will main event the night 2 of WrestleMania 37. Roman Reigns will defend the title against Edge(men’s Royal Rumble winner) and Daniel Bryan.
There is no news on which match will open night 2. Also, there is not going to be any pre-show match on night 1 at least, so that WWE Championship could be the first match that the fans get to see upon return.
