WrestleMania 37: Roman Reigns made bold prediction on SmackDown - it came true

Reigns pinned both opponents at WWE WrestleMania 37

Roman Reigns secured a dominant victory in the main event of WrestleMania 37 on Sunday night. 

The Tribal Chief successfully defended his Universal Championship belt against Edge and Daniel Bryan in a bout that will be remembered for a long, long time. 

Not only was it a brutal affair with weapons, outside interference and submission holds throughout, but it ended in quite incredible fashion. 

To end the match, Reigns caught Edge with a con-chair-to, before stacking him on top of the motionless Bryan, pinning both men at once.

It was a real statement victory and one that proved Reigns will be a dominant champion for months - and perhaps years - to come. 

But it was also a victory that Roman predicted on Friday Night SmackDown ahead of WrestleMania 37. 

Just 48 hours before the event, he cut a promo promising Edge and Bryan he'd 'smash them, stack them and pin them' at 'Mania. Check out the clip below:

That really is some brilliant foreshadowing on Roman's behalf. 

Following WrestleMania 37, he then cut a promo confirming that he'd kept his word. Check out that exclusive video below: 

"What did you think was gonna happen? Are you calling me a liar? I told you on Friday. I'm gonna smash 'em, stack 'em and pin 'em one, two, three." Reigns said.

"I'm gonna stand up, put this [belt] over my head, make 'em look up to a greater man. Million dollars of pyro - pow, pow, pow. Just like I called it. 'And still'. Acknowledge me."

Yep, it's fair to say that at WrestleMania, Edge, Bryan and the entire WWE Universe acknowledged Roman Reigns.
