Edge last competed on WWE television at Extreme Rules premium live event, where he faced Finn Balor in an “I Quit” match. In the closing moment of the match, Edge was forced to say I Quit after Rhea Ripley threatened to hit Beth Phoenix with con-chair-to.
A few months ago, Edge said that he is planning to retire next year in Toronto which is the hometown of the WWE Hall of Famer.
Fightful Select has reported that Edge has limited dates on his current contract, which is the reason why he hasn’t appeared on WWE television since the “I Quit” match. They also noted that Edge’s contract would expire soon unless the current deal is frozen due to an injury.
“WWE sources confirmed that Edge is on a deal with limited dates, which is why he has appeared periodically since splitting him from the Judgment day feud. One WWE higher up said that the vignettes this past summer were a way to “buy some weeks” on television before Edge’s return, and give them a little more time in order to build to some important matches throughout the rest of the year, which happened with the Balor and Priest matchups.
In 2020, it was reported that Edge was on a three-year contract, for 25 appearances and 5 matches per year. However, that was either incorrect or amended, as Edge competed in ten matches in 2021, and has already competed in six matches in 2022. We aren’t sure when his deal is up or how many appearances are left on his existing deal. If the length was correctly reported, that deal could be up soon, if it wasn’t frozen due to injury. We’ve not confirmed if that’s the case.”
Fightful further noted that Edge had talked with AEW prior to signing with WWE in 2020.
