WWE has confirmed that Hall of Famer and member of the famous ‘SmackDown Six,’ Edge, will be a part of next Tuesday’s SmackDown 1000 show.
The ‘Rated-R Superstar’ is going to be hosting an episode of the ‘Cutting Edge.’ There’s no word yet on who his guest is going to be on the returning talk show, but you can always count on the ‘Rated-R Superstar’ for some kind of entertaining moment.
WWE.com released the following statement to confirm the announcement:
The Rated-R Superstar is coming home.
Edge is returning to host a special edition of his talk show “The Cutting Edge” next Tuesday as part of SmackDown’s historic 1000th episode.
The WWE Hall of Famer was responsible for many of the blue brand’s greatest moments, whether it was stepping up as one of the SmackDown’s premiere Superstars after the initial brand split in 2002, his unforgettable Money in the Bank cash-in on The Undertaker or running roughshod over SmackDown with General Manager Vickie Guerrero in his corner.
What will he have to say? Find out when “The Cutting Edge” returns during SmackDown 1000, next Tuesday at 8/7 C on USA Network!
I find it unfortunate that WWE, and even Edge himself, seem to focus so much on the comedic aspects of his character. There are new fans out there who don’t know about the man who was full of evil and cold calculation.
He was the first ever winner of Money in the Bank and cashed it in on John Cena immediately after he had been brutally beaten down in an Elimination Chamber match. Here’s hoping that we see just a glimmer of that evil genius on next week’s SmackDown 1000. On top of winning the inaugural Money in the Bank Ladder match, Edge is also an 11-time WWE World Champion, a ‘Grand Slam’ Champion, one of only two men to win a Royal Rumble, Money in the Bank and King of the Ring, and was ultimately inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012.
Edge joins Batista, Rey Mysterio, and many more on the list of returning stars confirmed for SmackDown 1000.
