In a move that has sent shockwaves throughout the wrestling community, the long-speculated transition has become a reality. After 27 years with WWE, the iconic superstar known as Edge has officially joined All Elite Wrestling (AEW), making a dramatic and unexpected debut at the highly-anticipated WrestleDream pay-per-view event on Sunday night.
The arena was electrified as Edge made his sensational entrance to confront his real-life best friend, Christian Cage, immediately following Cage’s victorious defense of the AEW TNT Championship against Darby Allin. The tension in the arena reached a fever pitch as the two friends locked eyes in a brief staredown, leading the audience to believe that they were about to team up against the fallen wrestling legend, Sting. However, the plot took a dramatic twist as Edge turned on Cage and his associates, unleashing a brutal assault.
In a frenzied sequence of events, Edge wielded a steel chair, using it to devastating effect. He first struck Nick Wayne with the chair, sending a clear message to his former friend Cage. Then, with a thunderous crash, he hurled the chair at Cage, leaving no doubt about his intentions. Finally, Edge capped off his shocking return by delivering a spine-tingling spear to the towering Luchasaurus.
Following the explosive melee, Edge surprisingly extended his hand to Darby Allin and Sting, signaling a newfound alliance with the AEW stalwarts.
One noteworthy detail was the announcers’ reference to Edge by his real name, Adam Copeland, suggesting a departure from the “Edge” moniker he was known by during his illustrious WWE career.
In the world of professional wrestling, this move is nothing short of seismic. Edge’s tenure with WWE spanned nearly three decades, and the circumstances surrounding his departure from the company remain unclear. Whether it was a matter of contractual disagreements or a heartfelt desire to embark on his final wrestling journey alongside his childhood friend and former tag team partner, Christian Cage, one thing is certain: the wrestling landscape has been forever altered by this monumental shift in allegiance. Wrestling fans worldwide are left eagerly anticipating the unfolding chapters in the saga of Edge’s AEW journey.
