Report: Latest On Edge's Possible AEW Debut Ahead Of WrestleDream
Update on Edge to AEW ahead of WrestleDream
Edge may be heading to All Elite Wrestling.
In the latest update on the 11-time world champion, Fightful Select has reported that a veteran WWE talent stated this past week it was a "lock" that Edge was going to All Elite Wrestling. Well before this "tons of talent" in AEW and WWE believed Edge would be heading to AEW when his deal expired and AEW wrestlers as far back as mid-August heard Edge would be joining the promotion when his WWE contract expired.
Edge himself has stated that his WWE deal was up at the end of September and the belief is he is no longer a part of WWE following his removal from the internal roster and the Friday Night SmackDown intro. Edge had the final match of his WWE contract back on August 18 against Sheamus in Toronto, Canada.
There has been no direct confirmation that Edge has signed with AEW but Christian Cage and Darby Allin are seemingly set to main event tonight's WrestleDream pay-per-view and all the talk around the start of a new era for AEW has only fuelled speculation that Edge (or whatever his AEW name will be) will be debuting at tonight's show.
In regards to Edge's entrance music, Fightful Select stated one source doesn't believe WWE owns exclusive licensing rights to 'Metalingus', while another source said an exclusive rights deal can be reached but WWE likely never thought it was necessary. WWE does not hold a license for 'Never Gonna Stop' by Rob Zombie, so that could be an option for Edge's AEW entrance music.
Fightful Select also stated: "One source with knowledge of the situation said that they believe if Edge wanted to use almost any Alter Bridge song, that they'd probably all work to make it happen."
WWE does hold the trademark to 'Edge' so Adam Copeland will have to use a different name in AEW if he does head to Tony Khan's promotion.
