Edge’s WWE Future Could Include A Reunion With Familiar Face


Edge may be nearing the end of his in-ring career soon and as it comes close to wrapping up, a familiar face from his past has been talked about for a WWE comeback.

This past weekend at WrestleMania 39, Edge competed in a Hell in a Cell match with “Demon” Finn Balor. It was the culmination of a ten-month storyline after Balor and The Judgment Day kicked Edge out of the very same group that Edge created in the first place.

The 49-year-old WWE Hall of Famer picked up the win over his body-painted opponent Balor, who also suffered a huge cut on his head during the match. Edge threw a ladder at Balor’s head, which led to Balor getting 14 stables in his head to help his recovery.

Edge recently commented on getting to compete in his 14th WrestleMania, which includes the last four years as well. Keep in mind that he had to retire in 2011 due to a serious neck injury and miraculously made his return at the 2020 Royal Rumble.

While the Rated R Superstar returned at the 2020 Royal Rumble, his best friend and former WWE Tag Team Championship partner Christian (Cage) made his return to the ring at the 2021 Royal Rumble. Christian was retired for 7 years at that point. There was an emotional E&C reunion as well. Instead of staying with WWE, who may not have wanted him at that point, Christian chose to sign with AEW in March 2021.

In this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer wrote about Edge’s potential retirement.

“Edge this week talked retirement in a lot of places. Basically he noted that he’s turning 50 (birthday is 10/30) and had said last year publicly that he was looking to retire this year when his contract expires. He said he wants his last match in Toronto. There is no PPV show scheduled right now for Toronto, but said he would retire just doing a show in Toronto more than he’d want to retire at next year’s Mania because to him, he started in Toronto and that’s where he wants to end it.”

As he continued, Meltzer mentioned there’s been some chatter about Christian possibly coming back to WWE some day to reunite with Edge considering they are best friends that started in pro wrestling together.

“Behind-the-scenes there was talk of Edge and Christian wanting to team together for one last time or run but we don’t know Christian’s contract length and if it would be possible. Edge signed a three-year-deal for $3 million per year in early 2020 and likely the time was extended due to injuries but would be up later this year. Tony Khan had approached him while he was retired to come to AEW, but WWE made the bigger offer and he went back to WWE at the time.”

While Edge was off Monday’s Raw, Christian Cage was on AEW Dynamite on Wednesday in a quick backstage appearance with Luchasaurus.
