Edge stated that the fans are WWE’s phantom limb and without them, it doesn’t feel quite the same yet.

“It’s not going to feel the way it’s supposed to until we get there that night and you actually hear a rumble and a roar out there from an audience. Then it will become fully real to me, I think. Right now, as a company, we’re all kind of flying blind because we have these stories and we have this creative but we don’t know what the actual reaction is going to be. When we walk out there, who knows how they’re going to react?”

He continued by stating that the fans have not seen this version of Reigns in person, but he thinks it’s the version they’ve wanted to see for a long time. However, the unknown is still there and the same goes for himself. He wonders how they will react to him. He hopes they will react and WrestleMania will have a pretty ravenous crowd, reaction-wise.
