Edge is being missed by his fans for quite a while now. The WWE legend faced betrayal from his stable, The Judgment Day, and then turned into babyface. Edge received a brutal beatdown, and as a result, he suffered a “non-displaced orbital floor fracture.” 

The superstar’s return was revealed to be on the July 25 edition of Raw from Madison Square Garden. Edge also had considerable disagreements with the creative team, as they tried to give his storyline supernatural angle. It seems there’s a solution to the creative anchor, and it’s the R-Rated Superstar.

Bryan Alvarez revealed on the latest session of Wrestling Observer Live that Edge will return back with his R-Rated Superstar gimmick. He read a question from a fan asking if Edge is going to rejoin his former stable.

Alvarez pointed to the contrary, saying that the Rated-R merchandise is already ready-made. He also referenced that Edge left the stable because he didn’t want a spooky angle taken by the creatives. It is worth noting, he added, that Judgment Day also didn’t go in a spooky direction.


I think the’ve already got Rated-R Superstar merch so I’m pretty sure that he’s returning as the Rated-R Superstar. Now what that means as a babyface [or as] a heel I don’t know. I don’t think he’s coming back to Judgment Day. Especially because he left Judgment Day. He left because he didn’t want to be invovled with anything spooky but then they haven’t done anything spooky [with Judgment Day].

Vignettes from WWE clearly indicate that Edge is returning to TV. While Finn Balor helped the stable take him down and effectively replace him, Edge is most likely going to exact his revenge. Only a few days left before fans will see Edge bask in his older glory as the Rated-R Superstar.
