• Edge Will Set New Royal Rumble Record This Sunday
On this week’s episode of RAW, WWE Hall of Famer Edge appeared in a pre-taped promo and revealed that he has been cleared to return to in-ring action.
He suffered a triceps injury during his Backlash match against Randy Orton and had to undergo surgery.
Edge then declared his entry into the Men’s Royal Rumble 2021 match as he wants to become a World Champion again.
Here’s what Edge said:
“I need to win the Royal Rumble. I need to main event WrestleMania, and take back what I never lost.”
With him competing in the Men’s Royal Rumble 2021 match, Edge has become the only man to compete in Royal Rumble matches in the 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and 2020s.
Although he did compete in the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble match as well, but fans always go back and forth about which year marked the start of this decade, 2020 or 2021.
Whichever year you want to consider, it’s not an issue anymore.
