Report: WWE & Edge Are Apart On Money For A New Deal Agreement
WWE and Edge are reportedly not settling on a new deal due to money
With news of Edge’s WWE contract coming up, there has been a whole load of speculation regarding his status with the company and potential next steps. Edge would refute rumours of monetary disagreements and demands in a social media post, though Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio has reported that one of the reasons for there being no agreement or new contract in place is due to the two sides being far apart on money.
“It's the same thing with Edge and McIntyre. Not that those deals are dead in WWE, but they're not close on money. And that's where it stands. It's not like somebody, you know, whatever these people ask for. It's not like it's a rubber stamp even though WWE is loaded with money. Tony's running a business. WWE is running a business. They have an idea of a salary scale. WWE can afford anything and anyone, but they're not. They have a mental salary scale of what people in certain positions get. And some of the guys want more or think that they deserve something commensurate to people that the company thinks are higher level and they think they're at the same level of. So that's kind of the situation. And it goes again on both sides."
Other reports have suggested that Edge is headed to AEW, with people in both AEW and WWE camps expecting this move.
