It appears that Edge will be challenging for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 37.

"Not sure when this will be officially announced, but Roman Reigns vs. Edge is the planned main event at WrestleMania," Dave Meltzer reported in today's Daily Update. "The Bianca Belair match isn't 100 percent right now."

Edge returned to the ring in Sunday's men's Royal Rumble match, entering at number one and wrestling for more than 58 minutes. He last eliminated Randy Orton to win the Rumble. Edge and Orton started the match as the first two entrants and Orton was taken out in an injury angle. After Edge eliminated Seth Rollins, Orton blindsided Edge with an RKO. Orton went to throw Edge out of the ring, but Edge reversed and threw Orton out.

This was the first time Edge has wrestled since tearing his triceps last June. It was also the second straight year that Edge returned at the Royal Rumble. Edge made his surprise return to the ring in last year's Rumble, wrestling for the first time since being forced to retire in 2011.

Edge cut a promo on last week's Raw and declared that he was entering the Royal Rumble.  Edge said he needed to win the Rumble, go on to WrestleMania, and take back what he never lost when he had to vacate the World Championship in 2011.

SmackDown's Reigns retained his Universal Championship against Kevin Owens in a Last Man Standing match at the Royal Rumble.

Belair won the women's Royal Rumble match by last eliminating Rhea Ripley. Belair is part of the SmackDown roster. At the Royal Rumble, Sasha Banks retained her SmackDown Women's Championship against Carmella.

WrestleMania 37 is a two-night event taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11.
