I’d call him a big deal. We are coming up on the Royal Rumble and that means it’s one of the more interesting times of the year. The best part about the whole thing can be finding out who is in the Royal Rumble field as those thirty spots can offer some big surprises. Some of these are more interesting than others but they are always worth seeing. We might know one of the biggest ones yet.
Like any other sport, wrestling can include some horrible injuries. Some of these may not be as obvious as others and some of them may build up over time rather than taking place in one big spot. Neither of these options are good but some of them can end a career in an instant. However, that doesn’t mean that things can’t change over time, and we might be about to see one of those career ending injuries be reversed.
According to WrestleZone.com, Edge is now considered “a lock” for the 2020 Royal Rumble. Should that be the case, Edge would be wrestling his first match since WrestleMania 27 in 2011 as he was forced to retire due to another neck injury. Edge, 46, had said earlier in the year that he could wrestle a match tomorrow if he wanted to and had been reportedly seen in Pittsburgh, possibly for a WWE physical. Last month, Edge denied all rumors of a potential return.
Still not and still not. Period.

It could erase one of the all time best retirement speeches. Check out Edge announcing the end of his career:
Opinion: This is firmly under the heading of “I’ll believe it when I see it.” Edge has been out of the ring for a very long time now and there is a very realistic chance that he won’t be back in the ring again. That being said, nine years is a very substantial absence and maybe his neck has had a chance to heal enough. It won’t be a full time return, but to get to head to the ring one more time must be an awesome possibility.
Do you think Edge will return? Who would you like to see him face? Let us know in the comments below.
