It looks like WWE Hall Of Famer Adam "Edge" Copeland has cleared a major hurdle in order to step back into a wrestling ring.
The Fight Oracle insider news Twitter account has broken several stories in the past and he is now reporting that Edge has been medically cleared to return to in-ring competition.
As noted last night, Edge recently signed a deal with WWE for a substantial amount of money and he was brought in for the SummerSlam Kickoff show to hit a spear on Elias. Edge recently left his podcast with Christian and talked about wanting to wrestle again. He also said that he's been feeling better and has been looking into stem cell therapy for his neck. Christian talked about Edge leaving the podcast and hinted that fans have not heard the last of him.
No word on when he will return to the ring but several names from the past have returned for big paydays at WWE's Saudia Arabia shows. It's quite possible that he could step in the ring at Crown Jewel later this month. Goldberg and Shawn Michaels received big paychecks for wrestling in Saudi Arabia and someone like Edge could get paid somewhere in the range of what they got if he comes out of retirement.
Another major name that has talked about wrestling again is Stone Cold Steve Austin. Click here for more on the Austin WWE in-ring return rumors.
