• Edge Trying To Work Fans About His In-Ring Status
As we noted before, PWInsider reported that Edge has signed a new deal with WWE for an in-ring return:
“We’ve heard that Edge signed a new deal with WWE that has a pretty nice upside.
My gut feeling is we’ll see Edge in the Royal Rumble as a surprise (as that seems like the perfect place to make a big splash with a return for WrestleMania season) and possibly even see him do a few matches on major events.”
Edge then turned down the report by tweeting the following:
Still not and still not. Period.

Bryan Alvarez is now reporting that Edge is trying to work the fans here as Edge did get some clearance to spear Elias on the SummerSlam 2019 Kickoff show earlier this year:
“Here’s all I can tell you, okay? Edge retired because his neck was all messed up. They would not clear him to wrestle, okay? Dave covered this in the Observer and then Edge tweeted out something like ‘no I’m not and no I’m not.’
Now, everyone thought this was a denial that he was signed with WWE and he was cleared to wrestle, okay? So, all I can tell you about this is that they did a show and in a segment he got in the ring and delivered a spear.
Now, let me tell you something there’s no way that a guy who isn’t cleared for in-ring action is going to return and do a spear. If you call Paige retired because of an injury and when they wanted to write her out of storylines there was zero physical contact. Asuka blew mist in her face and she sat down and laid down.
They are not letting Edge deliver a spear unless there is at least some semblance of clearance.
Now, I don’t know if he’s fully cleared, I don’t know anything about this. All I know is Edge did this and it’s what I was told and there was a denial.”
