Fans will be waiting a while to see Edge back on WWE television after his most recent match.
WWE had Edge beat Seth Rollins in a singles match at last month’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event before booking a rematch between the two former champions on last Friday’s episode of SmackDown from Madison Square Garden.
The match was highly praised by fans. Rollins won the match with the stomp after several kicks to the face. Following the bout, WWE did an angle where Edge was placed on a stretcher and taken to the backstage area.
This was a standard angle to write Edge off television. Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Edge will be away from the company for a few months.
It’s unclear exactly when Edge will be brought back, but it will likely be around WrestleMania season in early 2022. It should be noted that the WWE Hall of Famer did recently state in an interview that he’d love to work with Sami Zayn so that could be a future program.
