WWE currently plan on concluding the Edge vs. Randy Orton feud at WrestleMania 37.
This is according to Dave Meltzer, who writes in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the company wants to promote an I Quit match between the warring duo as one of the event's key matches, though this could obviously change between now and then. 'Mania 37 is still nine months away (28 March 2021).
The bout had previously been scheduled for SummerSlam 2020 before Edge was injured while taping The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever at Backlash, getting hurt on a retaped RKO spot. 'The Rated R Superstar's' return timetable remains unclear though a torn triceps typically comes with an eight-month recovery period.
Interestingly, Meltzer also notes that Edge currently has "significant creative influence on RAW" (with Daniel Bryan the same on SmackDown), with a source explaining that the sidelined star is currently part of the writing team.
Orton is currently expected to challenge for Drew McIntyre's WWE Championship at SummerSlam instead of facing Edge. There has been talk of 'The Viper' taking the belt off McIntyre and defending it against Edge later on, though WWE's future plans are always in flux.
