– As previously reported, Edge’s WWE contract was set to expire on April 30th. Edge did not sign a new deal with the company. He met with WWE officials a few weeks back when he showed up to give John Cena a pep talk, but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement.
Edge pulled out of an appearance for Resistance Pro Wrestling show on May 11th due to filming for Haven but has promised to appear at a future show.
– Michael Cole’s heel gimmick has been transitioned away. His new role is to be an edgy style of character who respects John Laurinaitis as one of the top heels but has a more neutral stance. This was seen on Monday when he was very sympathetic toward Cena after he was attacked.
