Edge To Serve As Special Ringside Enforcer For Universal Championship Match At WWE Fastlane

Edge returned to the ring on SmackDown for the first time in a decade.

On March 12, during the Universal Championship Match contract signing, Daniel Bryan enraged Jey Uso when he told Roman Reigns that he would tap him out the same way he did his cousin. Jey proceeded to flip over the table and exclaim that the Title Match at Fastlane needed a "special guest enforcer." Edge then came out and challenged Uso to a match for the following week, with the winner being named Ringside Enforcer.

Tonight, March 19th, the two men faced off. This marked Edge's first match on SmackDown since March 2011, when he beat Drew McIntyre. Uso nearly put Edge away after a Superkick and Splash, but the Rated-R Superstar kicked out at two. Edge would eventually put the match away after delivering a Spear.

Following the contest, Roman Reigns came to the ring and hit his WrestleMania opponent with a Spear of his own. He then trash-talked Daniel Bryan, who was on commentary and challenged him to come in the ring and try to tap him out. Bryan accepted the offer but was ambushed by Jey Uso before he could get through the ropes. After being thrown in the ring, The Tribal Chief laid out Bryan with another Spear, standing tall as the show went off the air.

As it stands, Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship versus Daniel Bryan at Fastlane, with Edge as the Special Ringside Enforcer. The winner of that match will move on to face Edge, the winner of the 2021 Royal Rumble, at WrestleMania on either April 10 or 11, 2021.
