WWE has officially announced that Edge will be returning next week for Smackdown 1000.
Edge will be returning to host a special episode of “The Cutting Edge” in-ring talk show segment. WWE did not say who his guest would be.
Edge spent many years as part of Smackdown in the 2000’s and was responsible for putting on some of the greatest matches on that show over the years. One of the biggest moments on the show featured Edge cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase against The Undertaker. Many fans might remember when he was the top heel on the show alongside his main squeeze Vickie Guerrero.
Other names confirmed to return on the show include Evolution, The Undertaker, Kane, Michelle McCool, Vickie Guerrero, Teddy Long, and Rey Mysterio’s full-time return. Mysterio will be facing Shinsuke Nakamura in a WWE World Cup qualifying match for Crown Jewel.
Last week, it was reported that WWE was hoping to get The Rock. At this point, because he’s been filming a movie in London, their best bet to get him on the show would be through a taped promo.
Smackdown 1000 will take place at the Capitol One Arena in Washington, DC.
