For 38 years, Wrestlemania has been the stuff of dreams. Some dream of winning the Stanley Cup or the Super Bowl, but i dream of Wrestlemania. I am dreaming about soaking everything in so I can be phenomenal. At Wrestlemania, I make everyone and everything around me better.
You need to fight your inner demon and become undeniable. I need Wrestlemania. You cannot call Wrestlemania ‘stupendous’ without me. While I need Wrestlemania, Wrestlemania needs Edge. Edge says he is laying out the challenge for everyone in the locker room. He needs someone to step up and stand across the ring against me to face the man who is the best in the business. You fight me a Wrestlemania and I will make you live forever.
