Reigns lives in reality, in the here and now. Bryan and Edge are dreamers, but it’s time to wake up. Their comeback stories don’t end with a title win. It ends with them being crushed by the Tribal Chief.

Daniel Bryan has said that this could be his final WrestleMania. Edge shoots down that notion, stating “What do you think this is for me?” It very well could be his last one as well.

Edge is sitting in the middle of the ring when we return. He says that he fought for nine years to get his career back. He didn’t try to make another career off of his wrestling past. This is all he’s ever wanted to do.
