- While Edge had been suffering increasing numbness in his arms and hands as well as periods of uncontrollable trembling, very few people knew of the severity of the situation and at WrestleMania 27, there was no kind of talk that it would be Edge’s last match. WWE creative plans were laid out for Extreme Rules and after with Edge involved in the storylines.
The announcement of his retirement came as a shock to almost everyone in the company. The news didn’t really get around until the crew showed up for RAW on Monday.
With Edge gone now, there’s a major lack of babyfaces on the WWE roster, especially on the SmackDown side. Someone like Randy Orton may get moved to SmackDown now or a star like John Morrison, Christian or others may get the big opportunity they’ve been waiting on to fill the void.
