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 last week’s 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.
AEW star Matt Hardy recently spoke on Episode 36 of the MCW Cast, where he claimed that WWE cleared Edge medically so that he would not sign a contract with AEW.
‘That was one of those things too. I think if they [WWE] hadn’t have cleared Edge and let him wrestle, he was going to end up at AEW. So they kind of had to go, ‘Oh. If we don’t want him to go, we got to let him have his way.”
