• WWE Officials Discussing A “First Time Ever” Match For Edge At WrestleMania 37 (Exclusive)
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, WWE Hall of Famer Edge announced that he has been cleared to return to in-ring action from his triceps injury.
Edge announced his entry into the Men’s Royal Rumble 2021 match and said he needs to win the Royal Rumble match, main event WrestleMania and take back what he never lost. For those who don’t remember, Edge was forced to retire as the World Heavyweight Champion back in 2011.
WWFOldSchool.com has been told that WWE officials are discussing putting Edge in a World Title match at WrestleMania 37, and that Edge wanting to be a World Champion again isn’t a short angle for his entry into the Royal Rumble match.
There have been talks of doing Roman Reigns vs. Edge for the Universal Championship in the main event of one of the nights of WrestleMania 37.
One of the major reasons behind Edge challenging Reigns at WrestleMania is the fact that there aren’t any credible babyface challengers left for Reigns on SmackDown.
Big E is currently involved in the Intercontinental Title picture and WWE doesn’t want to rush and push him into the main event World Title picture this early in his post-New Day singles run.
Shinsuke Nakamura recently turned babyface, but he’s more of a mid-carder at this point and WWE will need to re-build him again if they want to turn him into a credible main event wrestler.
Daniel Bryan’s name was also brought up during WrestleMania discussions for Roman Reigns, but Bryan is facing the same issue. He isn’t seen as a threat to Reigns when he lost matches to Jey Uso and Cesaro recently.
WWE still plans to do Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan, but they will most likely do it at Elimination Chamber or FastLane PPVs (both of which are scheduled to take place before WrestleMania 37).
No word yet on if Edge will win the Royal Rumble match to earn a World Title match, or a #1 contenders match at a later date.
