Update On Edge’s Status In WWE After Getting Injured By Seth Rollins

WWE Hall of Famer Edge is likely to be out from the WWE storyline for some time. Since after the monumental return at Royal Rumble 2020 from a career-ending neck injury, he’s working in a limited schedule for the WWE and that will continue as he leaves for another hiatus following what transpired following his match at the Madison Square Garden.

The Super SmackDown from MSG on September 10 witnessed Edge and Seth Rollins squaring off in a SummerSlam rematch. During the match, Rollins low-blowed his opponent then followed it up with several superkicks. He then finally connected with The Stomp to defeat the 11-time world champion.

Per the storyline, The Stomp is extremely harmful to Edge’s surgically repaired neck and hence he was then put on a stretcher and taken to a hospital. In an update to the situation, the stretcher angle was done to explain his absence around for a few months, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The legendary superstar isn’t really injured while the attack led to this kayfabe injury to make it look, legit.

Edge vs. Seth Rollins program to continue?

WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix announced during Tuesday’s WWE NXT episode that her husband, Edge was back at home. He was resting up with family following last week’s attack from Rollins. WWE also tweeted out Beth’s comments to play out that injury angle, but they have never issued a formal storyline injury update.

On a related note, Seth Rollins indicated on Smackdown that the feud against Edge might just continue once the latter returns. Rollins said he can’t move on until he finishes off The Master Manipulator. He also intended to finish him off in front of his family or have one more dance with him in the ring, teasing the third match of this ongoing rivalry. Extreme Rules could have been hosting the match but it could have been postponed.

While nothing is confirmed, this match could take place at Crown Jewel 2021 or Survivor Series 2021. It was also rumored earlier in the summer that Edge was set to move to, based on a WWE Shop listing that had him listed as a member of the red brand. To date, there’s no update on that move as we wait for the WWE Draft 2021 to begin in early October.

WWE Smackdown Preview (17/09/21): Roman Reigns-Finn Balor Feud Continues

A week after the historic Madison Square Garden edition, SmackDown will continue the buildup for the upcoming PPV event, Extreme Rules. Roman Reigns and his Universal Championship remains the central point of the show toward which a Demon is now coming after. Also, there will be fallouts from last week’s when WWE’s blue brand returns with the latest episode from the Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tennessee.

WWE Super SmackDown on FOX from MSG saw the return of Finn Balor’s alter-ego, The Demon. It also marked the return of Brock Lesnar on the blue brand and both these men are focused on getting their hands on the Universal Championship possessed by Roman Reigns.

Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, and SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos were dominated by The Beast Incarnate in the opening segment of the show. Lesnar also challenged Reigns for the Universal Title and that match will be happening at Crown Jewel 2021. But for now, Balor’s Demon King has received a title shot at Extreme Rules 2021.

A couple of weeks ago, Reigns defeated Balor in a singles contest to retain his title but that win wasn’t a clean one due to interference by The Usos. As a result, he received the rematch over the title.

Then following the main event match of Super SmackDown between The Usos and The Street Profits, we witnessed the return of the Demon avatar of Balor after a hiatus of almost two years. The Demon hit the ring and faced off with Reigns as fans cheered to sent MSG show off the air. We bet there will be consequences, this week from that segment.

Speaking of last week’s main event, The Usos retained their SmackDown Tag Team Titles against Street Profits but that happened as a result of a disqualification after Reigns hit the ring and attacked Ford and Dawkins. Reigns also punished Ford with the Guillotine Chokehold submission as it appears a rematch for the tag belts should be waiting at Extreme Rules with some sort of stipulations.

Seth Rollins defeated Hall of Famer Edge in a rematch from SummerSlam at the MSG episode of SmackDown. Not only that, but the Curb Stomp from him also sent the Rated-R Superstar, straight to the hospital. The question remains whether this has sent Edge to a hiatus, for now, or another rematch against Rollins will be waiting at Extreme Rules 2021.

A match from the women’s division with the lineup being Carmella and Zelina Vega vs. Liv Morgan and Toni Storm was reportedly taken out of the MSG card as Edge vs. Seth Rollins went overtime. All the superstars of that match was really frustrated as we hope the match gets placed on this episode of SmackDown. Also, a segment to continue the rivalry between Kevin Owens and Baron Corbin was also put aside due to time constraints which should be out back on the card on the latest episode from WWE’s blue brand.

WWE Announces Return To Madison Square Garden After Making New Records

WWE made their return to Madison Square Garden with this week’s Super Smackdown edition from New York City. Despite a number of segments’ cancellations from the event, it was a successful outing with the likes of The Demon King or Brock Lesnar making their way back to WWE’s weekly programming. Edge vs. Seth Rollins also featured in this episode dedicated to the 9/11 incident victims.

Now, WWE will again return to Madison Square Garden in NY for the annual post-Christmas live event on Sunday, December 26. This has been a tradition for the company for the past few years. But it did not take place in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, a Ticketmaster pre-sale has begun late last night with the “HOLIDAY” pre-sale code to sell out the tickets of the upcoming show.

WWE reportedly set a record with Super SmackDown on FOX taping from Madison Square Garden. It appears that the MSG TV taping produced the highest-grossing blue brand event of all-time in WWE’s history, according to Ariel Helwani.

“Last night’s WWE Smackdown at MSG produced the highest grossest Smackdown gate of all time, per sources. Not just in NY. Of any city ever for any SD. (Smackdown has been around for 20 years.),” the tweet from the source noted.

During the commentary, Smackdown announcer Michael Cole announced a sold-out crowd of 14,425 fans in attendance for last night’s Madison Square Garden return. It was noted by WrestleTix that the attendance was likely closer to 13,000, and the announced number wasn’t accurate. WWE often boosts up their announced attendance numbers.

Edge was one of the headliners of the Madison Square Garden event as she competed against Seth Rollins. He was apparently very emotional for his first match at the venue after a decade. There was a moment during the commercial break, following Edge’s entrance, where he got down on his knees, then kissed the mat to let her emotions out. This perhaps marked the final time that he performed at this historic venue.

As of now, there’s no word on what WWE has planned for Edge and Rollins after Edge was taken out in a stretcher on Super SmackDown after digesting the Stomp from his opponent. Earlier this year, The Rated R Superstar was heavily rumored for a move to RAW during the draft.

Edge Written Of WWE Storyline Following Brutal Loss Against Seth Rollins

An intense rivalry has been ongoing between Edge and Seth Rollins over this summer as the duo was intending to head into the Universal Title picture. This produced a rematch between the two during this week’s Super Smackdown from the Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Hall of Famer suffered a loss and was seemingly took out of the storyline perspective, for now.

Edge was very much emotional heading into the match as this marked his first outing at Madison Square Garden in over a decade (11 years, 2 months, and 22 days – 4101 days to be exact). He tweeted the following regarding his scheduled match against Rollins,

“Friday. SmackDown. Edge vs Rollins II. The Garden. I never thought I’d have the opportunity to wrestle in MSG again. Realistically this could be the last time I do. Let’s blow the roof off New York.”

Then Edge proceeded to share some more memories from The Garden where he made his WWE PPV debut all the way back in the 90s. Check out her post on both Twitter and Instagram,

“This pic is from SummerSlam 98. My ppv debut but also my @TheGarden debut. It’s hallowed halls will always be special to me. Tomorrow on #SmackDown marks the 4th different decade I’ve performed there. I’ve changed. But the mission stays the same: tear down the f$&@in house.”

Edge defeated by Seth Rollins in a rematch

The Garden gave a warm welcome to the Rated-R Superstar who managed to pull off a 5-star rated match with the Architect of the WWE. During the match, Edge paid tribute to Triple H (who recently underwent surgery following a cardiac emergency) by hitting Rollins with a Pedigree.

Rollins kicked out of the move and took advantage of a distracted referee by low-blowing Edge during the ending moments of the match. He followed it with multiple superkicks and then connected with the Stomp to get the pin to win.

Per the storyline, The Stomp is extremely harmful to Edge who is suffering from a broken neck, and hence he had to be rushed to a local hospital, immediately after the match. This possibly marked the end of the 11-time world champion’s current WWE run that started back in June. He probably headed to a hiatus and will be back only when the time is right.

WWE Smackdown Preview (10/09/21): Brock Lesnar Returns; Edge vs. Rollins

WWE Smackdown returns to its home, this week with a very special edition where Brock Lesnar will make his appearance, going after the Universal championship. A solid Summerslam rematch will be in-store on the show when Edge faces Seth Rollins in their second encounter. Also, an Extreme Rules contract signing will be there on the show that takes place at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Brock Lesnar is the headliner of this Super SmackDown episode as he will be targeting the reigning Universal Champion, Roman Reigns. Last week, a backstage segment took place where Kayla Braxton was interviewing Paul Heyman when his phone started ringing. It was Lesnar’s theme song playing on the phone as the ringtone, and it was Lesnar who was calling. It appeared that The Beast wanted Heyman to deliver to WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Heyman later told his Tribal Chief that they have a problem in the form of Lesnar. Reigns wasn’t much concerned about the threat and said that when the time will be right, he will smash Lesnar, just like everybody else. But when Heyman informed him that Lesnar will be coming to Super SmackDown this week at Madison Square Garden, he started to worry. It’ll be interesting to see how things will fold out when these two titans meet in the ring.

Roman Reigns’ Title Match Announced For WWE Extreme Rules 2021

With the Universal Championship shot hanging in the balance, the feud between Edge and Seth Rollins is far from over. Following Edge’s win at Summerslam 2021, these two superstars will battle, once again on Super Smackdown in the potential main event of the night. That being said, WWE Universe is elated to be a part of the second installment of The Architect vs. The Rated-R Superstar.

Edge vs. Rollins II was made, official after last week’s SmackDown saw Cesaro defeat Rollins by DQ when Rollins used a steel chair. Rollins taunted Edge by using his multiple during the match. Then in the post-match attack on Cesaro, Edge made the save for the Swiss Superman, and later in a backstage segment, he challenged Rollins in a rematch. The veteran claimed that he would burn Rollins down one more time at MSG and the situation would be far worse than what happened at SummerSlam 2021.

WWE Smackdown Preview (10/09/21): Contract Signing segment

Bianca Belair vs. SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has been announced for the WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view, last week. The post-Summerslam edition hosted a number-one contender’s Fatal-4-Way elimination match won by Belair who was obligated to get a title shot from Lynch.

During a confrontation, The MAN denied giving Belair that title shot. Then WWE Officials made the match for the upcoming PPV, in a backstage segment. This will be Lynch’s first title defense after quickly winning the belt from Belair at WWE SummerSlam on August 21. Plus, both the women will put their signature to the paper in a contract signing segment on this week’s Smackdown from MSG.

Edge Switching Over To WWE Raw From Smackdown?

In what was considered to be the best match of WWE Summerslam 2021 night, Edge was able to humble Seth Rollins. The Hall of Famer came out to his Brood theme song and Fire entrance in a nostalgia act for many who then went on to defeat Rollins in a match that was almost 7 years in the making. The contest witnessed a submission finish as Rollins tapped out to the Crossface Sleeper submission.

Following this match, WWE Shop is now listing Edge as a RAW Superstar in certain sections of their website. This might be an indication that the legendary superstar is switching from SmackDown to RAW in the near future. As of now, he is still listed as a blue brand roster member but being a Hall of Famer, he is different from the regular roster members who could shift his position, as per demand.

Back at the beginning of this year, Edge was made appearances on Raw who also defeated Randy Orton in a singles contest, the night after Royal Rumble. But then he opted to face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at Wrestlemania 37 which automatically switched him onto Smackdown in the leading weeks. In the near future, WWE Draft is coming up and it’s possible that he could be drafted to the red brand.

Edge vs Seth Rollins feud to continue

Time will tell how this storyline will play out as we have to keep updated with it. Meanwhile, Edge opened up in a backstage interview about his SummerSlam win over Seth Rollins. He brought back that ‘Brood’ side of himself who also gave Rollins a ‘Brood Bath’, a night before the PPV event.

“Seth lit something inside of me, and pushed me into a really, really dark place,” Edge stated on bringing back the dark side inside him. “It’s not fun to go there because as it’s hard to come out of there. But I knew I needed to, because I would give Seth all the credit in the world in terms of his ability, and what he can do in the ring. He’s almost unmatched, and I knew that going in. I knew that if he hit the Stomp, it was trouble for me and possibly the end of my career.”

Sheamus Shares His Reaction On The Return Of Edge

Former four times WWE world champion the Celtic Warrior Sheamus who is also a former two times WWE Intercontinental Champion recently talked about the grand return of the former 11 times WWE world champion Edge.

The Rated R superstar is indeed one of the biggest names in the history of professional wrestling. It took him seven years to win his first World Championship in WWE but he also won a total of 11 world championships in only five years time in WWE.

Sheamus Shares His Reaction On The Return Of Edge

But he was forced to retire from Professional wrestling in 2011 after he had a career threatening injury. WWE inducted into the Hall Of Fame class of 2012 knowing the fact he would never return to the world of professional wrestling again.

But he surpassed the impossible as he finally made his shocking return to professional wrestling in 2020 every far price in front of the Royal Rumble match of the mentioned year. Currently he is going pretty strong and he is currently having a feud with the former 4 times WWE World Championship Rollins.

Sheamus who is also a former two times WWE Intercontinental Champion recently spoke to Fightful where he talked about the grand return of the former 11 times WWE world champion Edge. He said;

“When I was doing the Celtic Warrior Workouts, which is kind of on the backburner at the moment. But I did one with Edge, too. I saw every title that Edge had. The one title I hadn’t won, the IC title. I saw how much he wanted to get back as well.

“All these little things motivated me and sent me on the right course to come back in the ring. People talk about the ThunderDome era, well it wasn’t just the ThunderDome era, mate. It was the PC era. Without the PC era, the ThunderDome era wouldn’t have happened, do you know what I’m saying? All these things happen. I laugh when I hear people going, ‘I was the star of the ThunderDome era.’

“Well, mate, where were you in the PC era? It’s not just that part. It’s the whole year and a half in that environment with no fans. I was just able to focus on different things. My promo, my character. Going out there, I got loose. My ring work has always been intense, but I was able to bring in a new level of intensity.

“I was able to bring out a lot of good stuff out of my opponents. We’re on the bikes. We did two days. One day was working out in his garage and then the second day was we went out on a mountain biking ride. He took off, mate. I’m like, the whole time, ‘I’m gonna end up on my face here. This is not gonna be good.’

“I haven’t been mountain biking since I was a teenager.’ So, he’s taking off down the road. I’m like, ‘Oh, this is gonna be bad.’ I got two GoPros, put the GoPro on the bike. Wes switched it around.

“He just took off then because he wanted to do something to show off how good he is. ‘Cause he lives in Asheville, he lives in the mountains. He’s always on the bikes, so he just took off. I remember we got back and we’re looking at the card on the GoPro watching it back from when he spilled over. It just gave him his confidence back. Before that as well he got himself in great shape.

“He wouldn’t do the workout until he was entirely happy with the way he looked. Which is a credit to him. I thought he was just putting me off, thought he was fobbing me off, ‘Yeah, yeah, I’ll do it.’ But no, he made sure he got himself in great shape. All credit to him, dude. He looks amazing and he’s back doing what he wants to do when everyone had written him off. Ten years he was out of the ring.”

WWE Smackdown Preview (27/08/21): Brock Lesnar-Becky Lynch Set For Appearance?

WWE Universe was thrilled to witness two mega returns at SummerSlam 2021 those are likely to make big changes on the SmackDown roster, starting from this week. While no official segment has been announced for this week’s episode, fallouts from the bygone event will be the main focus. Both the returnees should make their presence felt on the blue brand show that takes place at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.

WWE SummerSlam main event witnessed Roman Reigns retaining his WWE Universal Title over John Cena in a mega collision. After pinning Cena, Reigns stood tall with the strap as Paul Heyman joined him in the ring. The celebration was interrupted as Brock Lesnar’s music hit and the arena amid huge pop from the audience.

Lesnar went to the ringside area and stood on top of the steel steps, staring Reigns down. A furious Reigns watched from the ring until Lesnar entered the ring, staring him down. Reigns then opted to leave the ring, leaving the fight for another day. Now, a promo has been released for SmackDown where The Beast is being advertised to make his first presence since late 2019 and he’s coming after the title.

Brock Lesnar Reportedly Under WWE Contract Until 2023

The promo is also containing another returnee from SummerSlam 2021, Becky Lynch. She made her surprise comeback as the replacement for Sasha Banks, who was to challenge Bianca Belair for the SmackDown Women’s Title. After the match bell hit, Lynch offered Belair her hands for a shake, and Belair accepted, but Lynch then hit her in the jaw, then dropped her with the pumphandle slam for the pinfall win in just seconds.

With that win, Becky Lynch has started the fourth reign with the SmackDown Women’s Title ending the reign of Belair who won the title from Sasha Banks back at WrestleMania 37 Night One. As per the reports of PWInsider, The Man will now become a top heel on Friday nights, moving forward who will now enter in a feud against Belair over the title. Tonight, Lynch might just solidify her heel-turn by cutting a promo.

At WWE SummerSlam, Edge and Seth Rollins finally met in the ring in a match that many fans considered being the best match of the night. Once the dust was cleared, Edge emerged victorious by making Rollins tap out to the Crossface Sleeper submission. In a post-match interview, the Rated-R Superstar advised Rollins to stay away from him, now onwards,

“Seth lit something up in me and pushed me into a really really dark place. It’s not fun to go there because it’s hard to come out of there, but I knew I needed to. I think Seth underestimated me. As much as I respect his ability, if Seth is smart, he stays the hell away from me.”

By the looks of it, Edge vs. Seth Rollins is yet to be over and a second installment is definitely coming at Extreme Rules, next month. Edge is being advertised for the upcoming SmackDown shows, affirming that he will continue the ongoing program.

Baron Corbin is out to find his luck for the past several weeks. He was asking for money from fans and superstars for a long time but with a loss to Kevin Owens, two weeks ago, he’s now banned to do so. It appears that SummerSlam brought him some luck as he scored big in those Las Vegas casinos. More on this story will unfold as the post-SummerSlam edition SmackDown airs, tonight.

Two of the most iconic Superstars of the WWE of the modern generation are all set to collide at SummerSlam as John Cena challenges Roman Reigns for the Universal Title. Last week, the duo had engaged in a heated verbal war which took the IWC by storm and thereby took SmackDown ratings to the peak.

In the SmackDown Women’s Title picture, Sasha Banks is hell-bent not allowing Bianca Belair to steal her spotlight, ever again. During the contract signing segment, she made it clear again by attacking the champion with small help from Carmella and Zelina Vega. Banks seemed vicious than ever while locking in the Bank Statement submission on the contract table.

Following that segment, there have been some doubts about the much-anticipated rematch as the two participants missed house shows in North and South Carolina. But per the reports from PWInsider, the match is on and both the competitors should be present at the Footprint Center to continue the storyline for the matchup. We assume Belair would be looking forward to getting revenge on Banks for her recent attacks.

Big E then gave a chase to end the segment.

WWE then released a post-SmackDown video where we saw that Corbin left the arena with Big E’s Money In the Bank briefcase. Corbin also ranted about how he’s going to be rich and the next champion.
