WWE Looking For AEW Star To Return? WWE/AEW

An update has emerged on Edge’s wrestling future, and a possible reunion with Christian Cage, amid retirement speculation.

Since his return to the ring at Royal Rumble 2020, the Rated-R Superstar has been making up for lost time, after he was forced to step away from the ring in 2011 due to his neck injuries.

In recent months, Edge has teased stepping away from the ring for good, now that he’s able to finish his career on his own terms.

In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer commented on Edge saying he’s looking to retire at a show in Toronto, Canada, potentially within the next year.

Noting that there has been some behind the scenes talk about the possibility of an Edge & Christian reunion, Meltzer wrote:

“Edge this week talked retirement in a lot of places. Basically he noted that he’s turning 50 (birthday is 10/30) and had said last year publicly that he was looking to retire this year when his contract expires.

“He said he wants his last match in Toronto. There is no PPV show scheduled right now for Toronto, but said he would retire just doing a show in Toronto more than he’d want to retire at next year’s Mania because to him, he started in Toronto and that’s where he wants to end it.

“Behind-the-scenes there was talk of Edge and Christian wanting to team together for one last time or run but we don’t know Christian’s contract length and if it would be possible.

“Edge signed a three-year-deal for $3 million per year in early 2020 and likely the time was extended due to injuries but would be up later this year.

“Tony Khan had approached him while he was retired to come to AEW, but WWE made the bigger offer and he went back to WWE at the time.”

Edge last wrestled at WrestleMania 39 Sunday, defeating Finn Balor in a Hell in a Cell match.

Christian was last in action at AEW Revolution, losing to Jack Perry in a Final Burial bout.

He did appear on this past Wednesday’s Dynamite, reunited with a returning Luchasaurus.
