WWE witnessed one of the most nostalgic moments of this year as The Rated-R Superstar took his leave in front of the Toronto audience. The recent episode of SmackDown celebrated Edge’s 25th anniversary. There had been multiple speculations regarding his contract with the Stamford-based promotion over the past few days, which now seemed to have come to an end.
Talking to ET Canada, The Rated-R Superstar also revealed that his contract with WWE would expire after this SmackDown episode. Edge faced Sheamus last night before announcing his last appearance in front of the Toronto crowd. He, however, didn’t take his leave from the world of professional wrestling.
This gave his fans an idea of his probable journey in All Elite Wrestling. The fans took to ‘X’ to vent out their hearts. “Adam Copeland is All Elite,” wrote one user, beginning the chain of probability among the fans. “That pop when Adam Copeland shows up at ALL IN is going to be nuts,” wrote a member of the wrestling universe.
While many people claimed that it wasn’t possible, fans couldn’t hold back their horses. “Damn guys if you think about it it can actually happen Matt and Jeff Vs Christian and Edge,” pacified one fan. “Bring back the Edge and Christian show that totally reeks of awesomeness,” followed another. The excitement of Edge going to AEW is quite evident. It would be interesting to note if the WWE Hall of Famer goes to AEW.
Bully Ray wants to be the one to retire Edge
Hardly did the news of Edge’s retirement surface, than numerous stars expressed their desire to be the man to retire him. One such man was WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray. A member of the Dudley Boys faction, Bully had often faced Edge in the ring while they both were signed to WWE.
Recently, he took to ‘X’ to reignite the legendary feud that he shares with The Rated-R Superstar. “Standing alongside Christian against The Hardys and The Dudleys. Book it,” he wrote. Bully is working with Impact Wrestling currently and is in a good fighting spirit. The tweet attracted a lot of attention, and fans were already hyped up for the match.
However, many fans are also of the opinion that this is the end of wrestling for Edge. They were not down with the idea of him stepping into any other promotion below WWE. Referencing AEW, one user wrote, “That would be lame as f*ck he’s not going to a second rate promotion“. It is only a matter of time, which would make things clear about The Rated-R Superstar staying or stepping away from the Triple H-led promotion.
