Backstage news on Edge's current status

After being one of the great protagonists of Wrestlemania 37, the Rated-R Superstar Edge has literally disappeared from the WWE scene. The Canadian wrestler participated and was defeated that particular way in the Triple Threat Match against Daniel Bryan and WWE Universal Champion and WWE Tribal Chief Roman Reigns.

The most important WWE event in the coming months (and after Wrestlemania 37) is undoubtedly SummerSlam and on this show, it seems that Vince McMahon's company wants to make it the biggest Pay per View of recent times.

Great returns are expected for SummerSlam and for this year with the presence of the public the WWE wants this summer event at least on a par with the Show of the Immortals.

Edge won the 2021 Royal Rumble

Many names have been made about SummerSlam but apparently, the two eligible names for a return to WWE are John Cena and Edge.

While for Cena, the Boston leader, a titled clash against Roman Reigns appears likely, it is not yet clear what WWE will do with the Canadian wrestler. During the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the well-known colleague Dave Meltzer took stock of SummerSlam: "WWE wants to make SummerSlam a Wrestlemania 37 level show and it looks like big returns are planned.

The show should be organized with John Cena vs Roman Reigns as the main event, of course, the match scheduled for the WWE Universal Championship, then since it seems that in Houston there is also the return of Edge, his return to the ring appears more and more eligible.

this event. At the moment, however, it is not clear in what context and in which match it can be used." Through the local advertisements that WWE has broadcast in Houston, Texas, the state where the company's first three events will be broadcast with live audiences, the federation wanted to confirm that for this event there will also be the Rated-R Superstar Edge and consequently his arrival at SummerSlam seems quite obvious.

There was speculation that Edge might get a one-on-one match against Roman Reigns once he returns to WWE. However, since the current plans are for John Cena to face Roman Reigns at SummerSlam, Edge might have to look for another opponent.

''The show is expected to be loaded up with Roman Reigns vs. John Cena for the Universal title as the main event,'' Meltzer noted. Edge won the 2021 Royal Rumble and chose to face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 37. However, Daniel Bryan threw a wrench in his plans and got himself added to the match.
