• WWE Hall Of Famer No Longer Appearing At SmackDown 1000?
As we noted before, WWE announced after this week’s SmackDown Live that WWE Hall of Famer Edge will return to WWE programming on next week’s SmackDown 1000 to host ‘The Cutting Edge’.
Below is the preview that WWE posted:
Edge returns for a special edition of “The Cutting Edge” at SmackDown 1000
“The Rated-R Superstar is coming home.
Edge is returning to host a special edition of his talk show “The Cutting Edge” next Tuesday as part of SmackDown’s historic 1000th episode.
The WWE Hall of Famer was responsible for many of the blue brand’s greatest moments, whether it was stepping up as one of the SmackDown’s premiere Superstars after the initial brand split in 2002, his unforgettable Money in the Bank cash-in on The Undertaker or running roughshod over SmackDown with General Manager Vickie Guerrero in his corner.
What will he have to say? Find out when “The Cutting Edge” returns during SmackDown 1000, next Tuesday at 8/7 C on USA Network!”
However, it looks like Edge’s appearance might be cancelled as he’s no longer being advertised on WWE’s website to appear at SmackDown 1000.
WWE has pulled the article on Edge and he isn’t mentioned in the SmackDown 1000 preview either.
