Edge made perhaps the greatest return in pro-wrestling history by coming back from a neck concussion that ended his career, nine years ago. After the shocking appearance at Royal Rumble 2020, he started a personal rivalry with Randy Orton that culminated in at Wrestlemania 36, night two via a Last Man Standing match. He came out as the winner in one of the greatest matches of his illustrious career.
Following this win, speculations are running rampant on what would be next for him. WWE officially addressed this matter by publishing a short article on the 11-time world champion.
There’s no immediate update on his next appearance as WWE intends to use him in special capacities. But he will soon be coming back for more matches once the occasion is bigger. Here’s more from the company’s official website,
“Edge completed his comeback in epic fashion at WrestleMania, defeating Randy Orton in a grueling and emotional Last Man Standing Match that saw The Ultimate Opportunist hold back tears as he finally administered a brutal Con-Chair-To to Orton to win the match.
Now that he has completed his journey back to WWE, however, what lies ahead for the WWE Hall of Famer? Clearly, he has the ability to compete, and with Orton dispatched, the door is wide open. Will tonight bring a glimpse of his future?”
Meanwhile, Edge himself took to Instagram on Monday to reveal that he’s now officially out of self-quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic, and back to his duties as a father. He praised Randy Orton for giving a hell of a fight and said he is proud of what they accomplished together at the empty WWE Performance Center. Plus, he also said that it was certainly not the last for him and Orton in the WWE.
“So this was my Sunday,” Edge said of the attached photos. “Actually it was filmed two weeks ago. So I’m officially out of self-quarantine and back to being dad. After being Edge for WrestleMania 36. For the first time in a singles match in 9 years. Against, in my opinion, the most naturally talented person in the industry in @randyorton I will always be proud of what we accomplished with some strange circumstances.”

So this was my Sunday. Actually it was filmed two weeks ago. So I’m officially out of self quarantine and back to being dad. After being Edge for WrestleMania 36. For the first time in a singles match in 9 years. Against, in my opinion, the most naturally talented person in the industry in @randyorton I will always be proud of what we accomplished with some strange circumstances. I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of each other. And for that I’m strangely thankful. He pulled me to a 40 minute fight after being retired for 9 years. Wasn’t sure I had that in me. Now I know. He pushed me. For all of you, hopefully you watched WrestleMania and were able to get lost in it and try to forget about our current reality, even if only for a few hours. I’d also like to thank EVERYONE for the outpouring of positivity for the @wwe 24 documentary, The Second Mountain. Also, thank you to the ENTIRE team it took to support me and make all of this happen. I’ll get to you all on separate posts😉 It’s humbling. Lastly, stay safe everyone.
As reported earlier by wrestling sources, WWE signed Edge in a contract that will last for three years starting from this year’s Royal Rumble. He will compete in at least three matches, per year along with 25 appearances. Two of those matches for 2020 have already passed by as he competed at Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania 36.
So only one of his scheduled matches is remaining in 2020 which might take place when a bigger PPV like Summerslam or Survivor Series approaches, later this year. A bunch of names is waiting to share the ring with the veteran superstar who can create magic with any superstar, on any given date.
