WWE saw Edge wrestle in Toronto, and that may be his final match with the company. All signs point to the Rated R Superstar going to AEW at this point, and many would have to agree.
Chris Jericho knows what’s going on in the pro wrestling rumor mill, and he shared thoughts on the potential impact Edge might have on the AEW roster if he decides to join All Elite Wrestling.
Chris Jericho spoke to Josh Martinez on the Superstar Crossover podcast, where Adam Copeland came up in the conversation. He was rather coy in his response, because even if Chris Jericho knew anything he wouldn’t let that cat out of the bag.
“Well, I mean, who’s to say for sure? But if you look at Chris Jericho, for example, where I was in WWE, there really wasn’t much more that I could do there. You’re there for many years, and you’ve wrestled everybody, and it’s great. But it’s always good to shock people, and to show up with a new kind of mission.”
“So I think somebody like Edge, you know, there’s a lot of guys over [in WWE] like this. They’ve kind of done everything they can do there. For him to come to AEW with a whole fresh new coat of paint, a whole new roster of matches that he can have, obviously a new name, which would then, knowing him, knowing me, what I would do is a whole new look—a whole new mindset. That’s the best thing about having AEW and about us being as successful as we are, is that there’s now a viable alternative, I don’t wanna say, competitor, because it’s not that, but you can now go to either company.”
Edge recently concluded his WWE contract with a match against Sheamus on the August 18th episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown. While he hasn’t made any definitive announcements about his future in wrestling, there’s speculation that he could make the move to AEW. Chris Jericho previously held Tag Team Championship titles with Edge. Jericho drew a parallel between Edge’s current position and his own when he left WWE, having achieved everything possible in that promotion, and there are a lot of possibilities as well.
Ringside News exclusively reported that the general idea within WWE is that Edge is going to AEW. He did not ink a new deal with the company, and it appears that he could be setting his signs on Tony Khan’s company, so he can mix things up with that roster.
Edge got to work a lot of the matches that he wanted to while he was with WWE during that last run. It appears that he might have more stories to tell, but they could be in AEW. Only time will tell if Adam Copeland’s AEW debut will be a big cap on Arthur Ashe Stadium’s Grand Slam event.
