In the world of professional wrestling, loyalty to a particular promotion can be a rare and cherished quality. One such individual who embodies this loyalty, according to WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle, is none other than Edge.
Angle recently shared his insights on the Kurt Angle Show podcast, shedding light on why he believes Edge will continue to stand by WWE, despite rumors circulating about a possible move to All Elite Wrestling (AEW). Angle and Edge's history in the squared circle dates back to the year 2000 when they were part of the formidable Team ECK alongside Christian.
Their partnership was later augmented by the addition of Rhyno, forming "Team RECK." This shared history was punctuated by a memorable feud in the spring of 2002, culminating in Edge's victory in a Hair Match at Judgment Day 2002, resulting in Angle's iconic bald look, which he has maintained for over two decades.
While Angle has retired from professional wrestling for over four years now, Edge, at the age of 49 (turning 50 shortly), continues to be an active competitor. Recent speculations surrounding Edge's contract status with WWE suggest that it may have expired, fueling rumors of a potential move to AEW.
Some even speculate that Edge could make a surprise appearance on AEW TV during the WrestleDream PPV in Seattle.
Angle on Edge's WWE Loyalty
However, Kurt Angle is steadfast in his belief that Edge's loyalty to WWE will keep him from making the leap to AEW.
Angle emphasized, "I think Edge is loyal to WWE. He's been loyal since day one. Don't get me wrong; a lot of other wrestlers have crossed over, especially his best friend and kind of brother, Christian, but I just don't see Edge doing that.
I really believe he's going to be WWE for life." In a landscape where talent mobility has become increasingly common, Edge's unwavering allegiance to WWE serves as a testament to the deep-rooted connections and bonds formed within the wrestling industry.
As fans eagerly await further developments in this intriguing saga, it's clear that Edge's next career move will continue to be a topic of great speculation and discussion among wrestling enthusiasts worldwide.
