WWE Hall Of Famer Edge is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best heels to have ever stepped foot inside a WWE ring. He made his return at last year’s WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view after a long hiatus of nine years, following a career-ending neck injury. He competed in a few matches against Randy Orton. Edge was unable to defeat Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan to win the WWE Universal Championship on Night Two of WrestleMania 37. Seth Rollins recently dropped a bombshell regarding Edge quitting WWE.
Mike Chioda recently spoke to Jon Poz on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, where he revealed that Edge and Randy Orton wanted him to be the referee for their matches last year.
“They did call me for a match, a month or two later after the released me, for Edge and Randy Orton. But I was on my way to Texas so there was no way I could make it. They thought I was still in Tampa.
Chioda continued, “They [Edge and Orton] wanted me to be the referee of that match. Yeah, I didn’t get it either. The company’s releasing me but the boys still want me to referee their matches…which is awesome, don’t get me wrong, but I thought I might be able to go out strong and retire soon.”
