Latest news on Edge's status

Edge is undoubtedly one of the most iconic wrestlers of any era, having won a whopping 31 titles during his long career. In addition to being an eleven-time world champion, the Canadian veteran has held the Intercontinental title five times and the United States Championship once (making him the twelfth wrestler to complete the Grand Slam).

He also won the 2001 King of the Ring tournament, the Money in the Bank and the Royal Rumble. In 2012, one year after his first retirement, he was inducted with full merit into the WWE Hall of Fame by his friend and colleague Christian.

Against all odds, he came back at the 2020 Royal Rumble to the delight of fans. In the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, 'The Rated-R Superstar' suffered a brutal attack from the other 'Judgment Day' members led by Finn Balor.

Speaking to Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo analyzed Edge's prospects in detail.

Backstage news on Edge

"What happened in the last episode of Monday Night Raw made me happy" - admitted Vince Russo.

“I really didn't like what WWE was doing with Edge. Now they have to make him go back to being a babyface, even if he will be called to apologize to the fans for his actions ”- he added. From the Rumble of 2020 until today, Edge has never been absent from the scenes for too long.

Guest in the latest edition of 'Steven' s Wrestling Journey ', the 48-year-old from Orangeville spoke of his future: "I won't fight for another ten years, that's for sure. I think it won't even be five.

Maybe I could get to three if the physique allows me. I don't know, I don't think my career will last much longer. I am aware that the window is getting smaller and smaller”. Recall that Edge was forced to retire in 2011 due to a stenosis of the spinal canal.

The hope of the fans is that their idol will be able to end a legendary career in the best possible way. For his part, Edge didn't let them down, performing admirably at the Royal Rumble and engaging in an excellent feud with Randy Orton.

When he issued an open challenge for this year's WrestleMania, it ended with AJ Styles answering the call. It also led to Edge violently and viciously attacking The Phenomenal One and turning heel in the process. He formed The Judgment Day shortly thereafter, aligning himself with Damian Priest. The pair fortified their ranks by adding Rhea Ripley a few weeks later.
