Backstage news on potential next CAREER MOVE for Edge

Last updated

Edge’s next move could be rejoining his old friend Christian at AEW.

There has been no shortage of rumors about Edge’s future recently. The former world champion had previously said that he would like to end his career in his hometown.

Speculations picked up when it was revealed that the Rated R Superstar was competing in his last contracted match on this week’s episode of SmackDown from Toronto. While the WWE star has said that he is not sure about his future following the match, many believe joining AEW is the most sensible move for him.

Edge joining AEW is a ‘very real’ possibility

The latest Fightful update provided a backstage look on the situation. They noted that Edge’s ring name has been trademarked by WWE, so he won’t be able to use it outside. Though there are many in AEW who see him joining the company as Adam Copeland

“However, there are many in AEW that think that Copeland coming in could be a real possibility. Those close to him claimed earlier this year that the idea of him working in AEW isn’t as “out there” as you’d think. Obviously, Edge is close with Christian, but also Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler, who helped him prepare for his in-ring return.

The company management is also open to the possibility. The report noted how Tony Khan even tried to sign the Hall of Famer before his in-ring return back in 2020 at WWE Royal Rumble:

“Tony Khan was interested in bringing Edge before it was even known that it was fully possible for an in-ring return back in 2019. Edge contacted Vince McMahon and explained the discussions, and McMahon wanted the return to be in WWE if it were to happen. WWE set up meetings with doctors and test to get approved, which led to his return.”
