Edge winning the Royal Rumble simply proves that WWE doesn't learn from their past mistakes


Edge wins the 2021, Royal Rumble match by entering at number one outlasting 29 other men that entered after him and last Eliminated his Rival Randy Orton to win it and now he is going on to face Roman Reigns for the universal champion at Wrestlemania in what is regarded as a dream mat........ Blah blah blah blah blah!!!!!, It's okay, enough of that nonsense my ear is full of listening to those nonsense, WWE is moving to the future instead of focusing on the present towards heading to the future WWE is moving backwards. Fans bailed about Brock Lesnar and WWE said "well Brock it's okay for now" and now they give us another old star who is even more older and more accomplished, he is even in the Hall of fame, and now they are even given him a better push than Brock Lesnar, Lesnar never won any Royal Rumble, throughout his second run in WWE, Brock never challenged for a world title in the mainevents of wrestlemania against a younger star, Lesnar has always been a heel whom after everything would end up putting over a younger wrestler who is a Face and that's it, but Edge, he Returned from injury that led him to retirement, few months later he was injured again, first match back from the second injury he wins the Royal Rumble match. Although the virtual fans cheered for him, I think that was just because of the moment, later on they will discover the great mistake WWE have made.


Even if WWE wants to give Edge another run as world champion, it shouldn't be at Wrestlemania even if it is, it shouldn't be with a Royal Rumble win, there are several other options better than Edge, names like Bobby Lashley, Big E, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, Ali, Ricochet would have been a better option than Edge, but perhaps no other person deserves to win the 2021, Royal Rumble match than Daniel Bryan.

Moving into the Royal Rumble pay-per-view, one man was in everybody's mind, the promos he was cutting and all angles even the current storyline was suggesting a Daniel Bryan Royal Rumble win and a Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan match at the mainevents of wrestlemania but it didn't happen, this was WWE's opportunity to give Daniel Bryan a Royal Rumble win for the one time in his career, even in his promos Bryan told the world that he doesn't have much Rumble matches and much Wrestlemania matches left in him, so this could have been a perfect opportunity to give him a Rumble win and a mainevent but WWE chose a washed up Edge. Even though Edge won the Royal Rumble he should have gone to Raw or NXT to make his choice but he went to smackdown, thereby taking away both the Rumble win and the Mania match from Daniel Bryan, now they are trying to correct things by booking the Bryan Roman match at Fastlane which was the same thing they did in 2015.

This was the same mistake WWE made in 2014 and 2015, in 2014, Bryan was the most popular star in WWE after coming out of a hot 2013, instead of giving Bryan the Royal Rumble victory, so as to have a match with Randy Orton at Wrestlemania, WWE opted for a returning Batista, this made the fans unhappy as they loudly booed Batista even though he was a face thereby turning his name to Bootista, WWE seeing that the fans will not give in to Batista vs Orton, they added Bryan into the match by having him overcome Triple H in the opening contest, Bryan Went on to win the triple threat match and win the WWE champion to correct the mistake but that didn't take away the Royal Rumble mistake. In 2015, Bryan was still hot with the fans but WWE decided to move past him and move into the future but the fans said the future is not now, for that they loudly booed Roman Reigns even though he was there with Dwayne The Rock Johnson, from there Reigns became the boo factory leading him to turn heel in 2020, perhaps if there was a live crowd they would have booed Edge. WWE had both Reigns and Bryan have a match at Fastlane to determine who will face Brock Lesnar for the WWE champion at Wrestlemania, Roman Reigns went on to win the match and then at wrestlemania, Bryan won a classic seven men ladder match to win the Intercontinental Champion and then Seth Rollins cashed in his MITB contract to win the WWE champion in the said Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns match, that was their solution in 2015, now what will be their solution now in 2021.

Now they are trying to save the situation by first giving us the long awaited Reigns vs Bryan match at Fastlane first before Edge vs Reigns at Wrestlemania but I don't think that will take away the fact that they once again failed us in Daniel Bryan. I don't care about Edge vs Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania, everything that Edge is enjoying this year was supposed to be enjoyed by Daniel Bryan.
