Will Edge depart WWE and become All Elite?
Following The Rated R Superstar having the last match on his current WWE contract on the August 18th episode of SmackDown, rumours of the former champion wrestling in a different promotion for the first time in over 25 years seem stronger than ever.
If the former World Champion is looking to truly retire from in-ring competition soon and have his final ever match alongside or against best friend Christian, signing with Tony Khan’s promotion is the only way that this can happen.
Hall of Famer Bully Ray addressed the possibility of the two-time Royal Rumble winner making the jump on Busted Open Radio. While Bully Ray believes that the bidding war between both companies could rival MJF’s projections for 2024, All Elite Wrestling is not the right place for The Rated R Superstar:
“If this is Edge’s last match in WWE, if his contract is expiring, if he is done … do you think Tony [Khan] has the money to lure Edge over to AEW? Without a doubt. There could be one hell of a bidding war. I would be really shocked if a homegrown WWE talent in Edge … WWE is not just letting this guy go. So many people are begging this guy to make the jump over to AEW. Personally, I don’t think that’s the right fit … I think Edge is one of those guys that should be a WWE lifer.”
Will Edge Be At AEW All In?
With the former World Champion’s contract expiring, there is no 90-day competition clause, meaning that the Hall of Famer could become All Elite at midnight of the contract expiration date. With there being a strong rumbling that an E and C reunion could be taking place inside Wembley Stadium, the man of the hour has shot down any possibility of an All In appearance, as he is still under contract with WWE when the Wembley Stadium show takes place.
Despite not taking place imminently, there is a “real possibility” that the Hall of Famer could become All Elite at some point in the future.
In his last match until further notice, the veteran celebrated 25 years in WWE by defeating Sheamus in the first time ever match on SmackDown, which took place in Toronto with his wife and children in attendance in the front row.
