WWE Fastlane 2021 is in the history books now and we are less than three weeks away from WrestleMania 37. Surprisingly, there's still a lot of uncertainty around the match card of WrestleMania, including the main event of the pay-per-view.

We reported earlier that the originally planned main event of WrestleMania 37 between Edge and Roman Reigns has now been changed to a triple threat involving Daniel Bryan as well. On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed why Vince McMahon made this change to the WrestleMania main event.

"The story on this is when Vince decided to tear up the show…he wanted some changes, he wasn't satisfied. Evidently, this is the match he wanted changed, the key match. There were all kinds of ideas thrown around and from what I was told, most of them weren't good but this was the best of the ideas was to make it a three-way. Meltzer continued, The idea is it’s three guys who are really good workers. I thought that it was one of those things where they were afraid that Roman Reigns was gonna get cheered against Edge and f**k up the match. I thought that but that is not the reason…I think that he just felt that it wasn't what he wanted and it was what he wanted and now it wasn't what he wanted. So Daniel Bryan is in there and Edge is a heel, which I guess is what he wanted so there you go." (h/t
