It’s official! Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship title at Fastlane against Daniel Bryan. On tonight’s SmackDown, Daniel Bryan defeated Jey Uso in a Steel Cage Match and has now earned the right to a title match at Fastlane on Sunday, March 21st, 2021.
Tonight’s Steel Cage Match was announced last week on Talking Smack by Special Council Paul Heyman who told Daniel Bryan that he had been authorized to offer him a rematch with Uso. The match’s stipulations were that if Bryan won, he would get his Universal Title Match at WWE Fastlane. If Daniel Bryan lost, he would have to acknowledge Reigns as The Head of the Table and the best competitor ever. Bryan accepted the offer with the condition that the rematch be in a Steel Cage to assure a clear winner.
The Universal Championship is up for grabs at Fastlane on Sunday, March 21st, airing on Peacock and the WWE Network at 7PM / 4PM EST.
