• There’s A Real Chance Of Edge Wrestling In WWE In 2020
Brad Shepard recently noted that CM Punk is on WWE’s wishlist on the Road to WrestleMania 36.
In an update to this, another name that’s on WWE’s wishlist for WrestleMania 36 is WWE Hall of Famer “The Rater R Superstar” Edge:
“In an update to my report on #WWE’s Road to WrestleMania wishlist, another person they hope to get is Edge.
His name is beginning to pop up now at HQ.
If he were to be cleared (in time), I’m told there’s a real chance he wrestles again – possibly at the next Saudi show or WrestleMania 36.”
