With rumours swirling that Edge may have wrestled his final ever WWE match on this past Friday's SmackDown, could the Rated-R Superstar make an appearance at AEW All In next weekend?
In a word, no.
Speaking during an appearance on Sportsnet's The FAN Morning Show (via the Wrestling Observer), Edge detailed how his WWE contract expires at the end of September. As such, that would rule the 11-time World Champion out of appearing for any other promotion before then - such as, say, for AEW at All In one week from today.
As Edge explained in this interview:
"My contract is up at the end of September. This [vs. Sheamus] is my last contracted match. So I have a lot of decisions to make."
The most recent outing for SmackDown saw Edge defeat Sheamus in the Canadian's home province of Toronto. Following that 'first time ever' match, the WWE Hall of Famer addressed the crowd and stated how that was likely the last time he'll wrestle in Toronto, before adding how he doesn't know what the future holds and how he needs to sit down and discuss that matter with his family.
With AEW All In on the imminent horizon, plus with the Stadium Stampede bout currently set to feature three mystery competitors, some had eagerly suggested Edge as becoming #AllElite next weekend. Likewise, the recent issues with Cash Wheeler had others offering up the notion of Edge - who is close friends with FTR - taking Wheeler's place to team with Dax Harwood against the Young Bucks at All In.
As it stands, Edge will be formally with WWE for at least another month. After that, it remans to be seen what the future holds for Adam Copeland.
Interestingly, Fightful Select is reporting that Edge - obviously under a different name - heading to AEW at some point is viewed as a "real possibility" be some within Tony Khan's organisation.
