Edge lost to Finn Balor in an ‘I Quit’ match at the Extreme Rules premium live event on October 8, 2022. The Rated R Superstar was removed from future WWE appearances as part of his storyline with The Judgment Day. It appears that Edge could very well be reaching the end of his WWE contract.

Sean Sapp provided an update on Edge’s current deal with WWE from behind Fightful’s paywall. The multi-time world champion signed a three-year contract with the company in 2020. According to the report, Edge is currently working limited dates with WWE.

WWE sources confirmed that Edge is on a deal with limited dates, which is why he has appeared periodically since splitting him from the Judgment day feud. One WWE higher up said that the vignettes this past summer were a way to “buy some weeks” on television before Edge’s return, and give them a little more time in order to build to some important matches throughout the rest of the year, which happened with the Balor and Priest matchups.

In 2020, it was reported that Edge was on a three-year contract, for 25 appearances and 5 matches per year. However, that was either incorrect or amended, as Edge competed in ten matches in 2021, and has already competed in six matches in 2022. We aren’t sure when his deal is up or how many appearances are left on his existing deal. If the length was correctly reported, that deal could be up soon, if it wasn’t frozen due to injury. We’ve not confirmed if that’s the case.


Edge has previously teased permanent retirement from in-ring competition, noting that 2023 would be his final year in the pro wrestling world and that he plans to retire in Canada. 

It remains to be seen if Edge will return to WWE in time for the 2023 Royal Rumble premium live event. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we will keep you posted on the situation.
