Edge WWE Departure Rumor Revealed

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. ‘The Rated R Superstar’ 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 would then compete in a couple of amazing matches against Randy Orton. Edge was then unable to defeat Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan to win the WWE Universal Championship on Night Two of WrestleMania 37.



Edge would go on to have matches with the likes of Roman Reigns and then Seth Rollins. Edge is currently the leader of Judgement Day but that all changed after a previous week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. This is because after Finn Balor was revealed to be the fourth member of the faction, they all turned on Edge and brutally attacked him, thereby kicking him out of the group. He was feuding with the faction and is now out of action.

Sean Sapp provided an update on Edge’s current deal with WWE from behind Fightful’s paywall. The multi-time world champion signed a three-year contract with the company in 2020. According to the report, Edge is currently working limited dates with WWE.

WWE sources confirmed that Edge is on a deal with limited dates, which is why he has appeared periodically since splitting him from the Judgment day feud. One WWE higher up said that the vignettes this past summer were a way to “buy some weeks” on television before Edge’s return, and give them a little more time in order to build to some important matches throughout the rest of the year, which happened with the Balor and Priest matchups.

In 2020, it was reported that Edge was on a three-year contract, for 25 appearances and 5 matches per year. However, that was either incorrect or amended, as Edge competed in ten matches in 2021, and has already competed in six matches in 2022. We aren’t sure when his deal is up or how many appearances are left on his existing deal. If the length was correctly reported, that deal could be up soon, if it wasn’t frozen due to injury. We’ve not confirmed if that’s the case.
