Roman Reigns also took to Twitter to comment on the match, saying that once they’ve experienced the Island Of Relevancy, they’ll always want more.
Edge then responded to Roman Reigns’ comments on Twitter by uploading a photo of himself resting Reigns’ head on a chair with the message, , “Night night kid. Try not to drool on the chair. See ya at #MITB”
