When Edge returned from retirement in 2020 he listed off a ton of names of people he wanted to wrestle. A year later, that list remains the same length but now he will have the opportunity to wrestle some new faces.
During his appearance on The Steve Dangle Podcast, Edge was asked who he saw while he was retired who he wanted to wrestle. In a possible look into his WrestleMania future, Roman Reigns was the first name to come to mind. Here is the quote:
“Roman Reigns. For years I was saying- especially when Jay [Christian] and I had our podcast, he was getting all kinds of flack and I never understood it because I know how talented that guy is. I could see the guy that was in there that wasn’t allowed to come out character-wise. So he was a guy that I always saw and was like ‘Man, what I could do with that guy,’ but there’s loads of them. There really is.
A guy like Cesaro or Seth Rollins or AJ Styles, like AJ Styles- so I started in ’92, I think AJ started in like ’96 and we’ve never wrestled. Which is insane. We’ve both been in the industry for that long we were just separate places. He was TNA or he was Japan and I was WWE my entire career. That’s another aspect of [coming out of retirement] too is all these guys that I haven’t wrestled that I should have by now. So that’s really cool.”
As a result of winning the Royal Rumble, Edge now has the choice of facing Drew McIntyre, Roman Reigns or Finn Balor at WrestleMania 37.
