There are a few more details on Edge’s WWE return in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Dave Meltzer is reporting that the $3 million per year deal being reported on by talkSPORT is accurate but the reports about the number of dates he will wrestle are off.
Meltzer noted that Edge was able to use his talks with AEW to leverage himself into getting one of the highest deals in WWE history. Edge’s deal calls for more than the five matches and 25 television shows per year that were first reported on earlier this week. So, fans of Edge will see him quite a bit on WWE TV over the next three years.
Edge is being paid more than most but not as much as Brock Lesnar. Goldberg was paid $2 million just for his match with The Undertaker last year in Saudi Arabia.
Edge and Daniel Bryan being cleared makes you wonder who might be next. Hulk Hogan has said that he spoke with Vince McMahon about one final match at WrestleMania. Hogan is scheduled to appear at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia and he has been working hard to get in shape for a final match. Sting’s name came up over the weekend when PWInsider reported that there’s been talk of him doing something at Super ShowDown.
Meanwhile, Steve Austin said this week that Edge’s return does not make him consider making an in-ring return. So, at this point, it does not look like one final match is in the cards for Stone Cold fans.
