On January 26th, at Royal Rumble, Edge made his return to the ring after nine years participating in the match of the same name entering with the number 21, but was eliminated by Roman Reigns after making three eliminations.
The following evening, in Raw, he announced that he wanted to continue his career, and shortly after he was joined by Randy Orton (his ex-partner in Rated-RKO); and after proposing to meet, Orton hit him with an RKO, then repeatedly attacked him with two chairs, injuring him (kayfabe).
Edge then returned to Raw's March 9 episode by attacking Montel Vontavious Porter, who had insulted him while the two were in the ring, and shortly thereafter also Randy Orton with an RKO, taking revenge. In WWE Edge has won the World Heavyweight Championship a record seven times, the WWE Championship four times, the Intercontinental Championship five times, the United States Championship once, the WWF/World Tag Team Championship a record twelve times, and the WWE Tag Team Championship twice.
He is WWE's 14th Triple Crown Champion and 7th Grand Slam Champion. He also won the King of the Ring tournament in 2001, was the first Money in the Bank ladder match winner in 2005, and won the Royal Rumble match in 2010, making him the first wrestler in history to achieve all three of those accomplishments.
During a long interview with Metro UK, he believed holding WrestleMania 36 during Coronavirus is important: “As long we can try and be as responsible and as safe as we can, why wouldn’t we try and do this for everyone? As a performer, that’s what we want to do.
If we can do that and if people watch and can have fun for a few hours then our mission is accomplished … Here’s how I’ve always looked at this job. My responsibility is to make you forget your responsibilities for two or three hours a day, or during that show.
That is a huge responsibility, and it’s a privilege. I don’t look past it. I didn’t have it for nine years. Now I come back, and the gravity of that responsibility is not lost on me. Sure, it’s entertainment.
Yes, we’re jumping around in tights. But a time like this, it’s very, very important. I truly believe that”.
