The wrestling world is abuzz with speculation and rumours. One of the most significant whispers making the rounds is the potential move of WWE Hall of Famer, Edge, to All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
This development has sent shockwaves through the industry, with fans and insiders alike discussing the implications of such a monumental shift.
Edge’s Farewell to WWE SmackDown
Edge recently made headlines with his emphatic victory over Sheamus on SmackDown. The victory was not just another notch on his belt; it was a statement.
Following the match, Edge addressed his fans in Toronto, hinting that he might never wrestle in his hometown under the WWE banner again.
This revelation has led many to believe that if he does return to the ring in Toronto, it might be for a different promotion, possibly AEW.
AEW’s Track Record with Former WWE Stars
AEW has a history of signing big names who have parted ways with WWE. The rumour of Edge considering a move to AEW gains traction, especially given his close ties with AEW’s Dax Harwood.
Additionally, Edge’s long-time friend and former tag team partner, Christian, who is currently with AEW, could play a pivotal role in this potential transition.
Contractual Implications and Speculations
Ringside News has claimed that inside sources have revealed that discussions between Edge and WWE did not reach a conclusive agreement.
This has fuelled the internal belief within WWE that Edge might be AEW-bound. However, there’s a twist in the tale.
The timing of Edge’s contract expiration might not align with AEW’s ‘All Out London’ event. But that doesn’t mean the idea of Edge joining AEW is off the table.
The Name Game
If Edge does make the jump to AEW, fans might have to get used to a new name. WWE owns the rights to the name ‘Edge’, which means that upon his AEW debut, he might go by his real name, Adam Copeland.
This change, while significant, is a small price to pay for the potential matchups and storylines that await him in AEW.
The Bigger Picture
The overarching question remains: Can Edge be the game-changer for AEW? His potential move could pave the way for an Edge and Christian reunion, a prospect that fans would undoubtedly relish.
Edge’s legacy in WWE is undeniable, but a new chapter in AEW could add another layer to his illustrious career.
