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’s bold text messages to WWE RAW Superstar also leaked recently.
Edge would go on to have matches with the likes of Roman Reigns and then Seth Rollins, the latter of which took place at WWE SummerSlam and then on a previous episode of Friday Night Smackdown at Madison Square Garden. After he lost to Seth Rollins, Edge was written off of WWE television via an injury angle.
The Rated R Superstar squared off against Seth Rollins once again, this time in a Hell In A Cell match at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on October 21st. In the end it Edge pulled off the victory after what was no less than all-out war between the two WWE Superstars.
Since then, Edge has been absent from WWE television as well. Jim Ross recently spoke on his Grilling JR podcast where e said that Edge made the right call staying in WWE and not going to AEW.
“He has got a brand established in WWE. It’s home for him. He is comfortable there. He’s got a really open, established communication with Vince, which is crucial. Would I have loved to have had him in AEW? Hell yeah! Are you kidding? Absolutely. But I just think that WWE for him, after all these years, was home.”
“He is a lifer there (WWE). Would I like to see Adam Copeland have a match in AEW someday? Of course, I would….Is it going to happen? Unlikely. Highly unlikely, perhaps. But that would have been kind of cool if he had come and worked for us. But I understand why he did, and I think he made the right decision.”
