In a thrilling culmination to his current WWE contract, Edge gave an electrifying performance last Friday on "SmackDown," besting Sheamus in a match that will undoubtedly go down as a TV classic. This spectacle unfolded amidst the palpable energy of his hometown supporters in Toronto, Canada.
At the age of 49, the wrestling maestro took a moment post-match to speak candidly to his fans, articulating the ambiguity of his professional future. By the subsequent day, it was revealed that his tenure with the wrestling titan, WWE, would conclude come September.
Speculation Swirls Around Edge
As Edge's next step hangs in the balance, the digital wrestling community is rife with speculation. Some fans wonder if Edge might cross over to AEW, especially considering his enduring camaraderie with Christian, his erstwhile tag team comrade, now shining in the AEW limelight.
Addressing these whispers, Bully Ray, a former in-ring foe, shared his insights on the latest "Busted Open" episode. With conviction, Bully Ray acknowledged the financial allure AEW might hold for someone of Edge's stature.
"If Tony [Khan] has the deep pockets to entice Edge over to AEW? Indisputably," Bully Ray remarked. He further suggested, "The ensuing tussle between WWE and AEW over Edge could be monumental. It would stun me if WWE lets a talent they've nurtured like Edge walk away.
The clamor for Edge to hop onto the AEW bandwagon is palpable. However, from my vantage point, I genuinely believe Edge embodies the spirit of WWE." Having first stepped into the WWE universe over two decades back, Edge's dramatic return in 2020 after nearly a decade-long hiatus only bolstered his standing as one of WWE's cornerstone performers.
However, as Bully Ray astutely highlighted, WWE veterans like Paul Wight (formerly known as The Big Show) and Mark Henry have transitioned to AEW, albeit in off-stage capacities. As the wrestling world awaits Edge's decision, his next move promises to be a game-changer.
