Edge ‘Refused’ WrestleMania Win For Sad Reason

Edge and Daniel Bryan had no chance of beating Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Title at WrestleMania 37 because the company’s sole goal all along was to strongly put over Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns Buried Edge In An ‘Angry Rant’ Backstage.



Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio, “There is no doubt what their intention is that there is one guy they are push, and everybody else is there to, you know service their one guy. That’s what this match was.”

Paul Heyman revealed that WWE have to script promos or Raw, Smackdown, and PPV’s, as they could face cancelation by USA, FOX, and Peacock if a performer says something over the line. This would cost WWE hundreds of millions of dollars. Vince McMahon’s Net Worth In 2021 Was Just Revealed.

Heyman told the Sports Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch, “As for other performers, that, again, is something without a perfect answer. Vince McMahon owns a content creation conglomerate that now has on the table and in application, three separate billion-dollar deals, and I’m sure he’s working on more. Knowing Vince, he is probably trying to envision the first trillion-dollar content output deal. There is a billion-dollar deal for Fox television for SmackDown.

There is a billion-dollar deal with NBCU for Monday Night Raw and there is now a billion-dollar deal with Peacock for the domestic streaming rights to WWE Network. When you have such deals, you have to protect those deals from someone else screwing them up.

So, if Mr. or Mrs. or Ms. X goes out to the ring and on live television or a livestream says something that is egregiously wrong and it gets through or it said in front of all these witnesses and it causes a major scandal, and cancel culture or not, deservedly gets WWE thrown off of fox or NBCU or Peacock and blows a billion-dollar deal, who is to blame besides Vince McMahon for not saying, ‘I want to know what this person is going to say before they say it?’ Peaky Blinders is not streamed live no. It’s filmed. You know what these characters are going to say. Better Call Saul is not streamed live.

It’s not a Broadway play that then goes live to the universe where someone can say something so controversial, whether it is QAnon or a left-wing conspiracy, it doesn’t matter. We don’t leave ourselves open to someone screwing multi-generation lifetimes of work to get to where we are.

Therefore, if someone walks out to the ring, Vince McMahon has the right to know exactly what that person is going to say. Otherwise, he is jeopardizing the shareholders’ right to a return on their investment hoping and counting on the chairman to maintain control in a creative environment which can always go wrong. Look at the trouble the NBA is having with the controversies that are arising out of the social views of some of their top stars.

Whether their top stars are right or wrong, the NBA is suffering the backlash of what some people and what some top stars are feeling in their hearts. Look at the trouble the NFL has had in dealing with the social ramifications, political viewpoints, and social viewpoints I’ve some of their teams’ top players and even some of their teams’ secondary players, whether they’re right or wrong is not what I’m discussing. What I am discussing is, there are ramifications of all things that are said and done, and WWE, as a scripted performance that allows some improv, tries to keep control of that environment.” Credit to Fightful for the transcription.
