Edge competed on the August 18th episode of SmackDown to celebrate his 25th anniversary in WWE. The Rated R Superstar wrestled against Sheamus and picked up the victory after delivering a Spear.
The WWE Hall of Famer revealed that it was his final match on the current contract. During SPORTSNET’s Fan Morning Show, Edge confirmed that his deal will expire in late September.
PWTorch reported that Edge has informed WWE of his requirements to re-sign with the company. However, WWE has declined Edge’s demands. WWE management believes he will be headed to the rival promotion, All Elite Wrestling.
“PWTorch has learned that Copeland presented to WWE what it would take to retain his services, but WWE declined to meet his request. This has sparked a belief within WWE that he is probably headed to AEW and knew at that time what AEW could offer him”
PWTorch also noted that AEW President Tony Khan is a huge fan of Edge.
