Edge seems okay with wrapping up his WWE career at this point, because he gets to do it on his terms. His “peace of mind” when it comes to calling it on his career might not include 100% retiring from the ring, because there is a very strong thought that the Rated R Superstar is going to AEW.
Ringside News exclusively reported that there is belief within WWE that Edge is on his way to AEW. It was later reported that the same thought of Edge coming to AEW is present within Tony Khan’s company as well.
There are two stories going around about Edge’s WWE contract situation. One says WWE rejected Edge’s counteroffer, and another says that Adam Copeland was the one who rejected WWE’s deal. We can confirm that it was WWE that rejected the deal.
Ringside News reached out to confirm this story, and a tenured member of the team confirmed with us that WWE rejected Edge’s deal, and that also gave them a very good idea that Adam Copeland is looking at AEW.
We were told that, “WWE did not accept the offer Edge made to stay.” It was also said that “from what we heard about the offer, WWE was smart to turn it down.”
The general thought is that WWE thinks Edge is going to AEW, because Edge knows what they can offer him. AEW can obviously offer him a light schedule, and maybe even more money. No further specifics of the deal Edge wanted were revealed, but it will be.
There is a thought that Edge might have an idea already of what AEW can offer him. Dax Harwood is his neighbor, and he is obviously still close with Christian Cage as well. Only time will tell what all the details are, but we might find out in time if Edge is willing to let all the information out in an interview down the line. At this point, it’s very likely that interview will not be under WWE’s umbrella.
