He can do that too. One of the more common criticisms that you will see about wrestling today is that there is too much content. It can be great to see how much wrestling there is today, but at the same time, it means that you can see some wrestlers a little more often than others. At some point you need to see someone get changed up a bit, just for the sake of having something fresh. That might be the case again in the near future.

According to Jon Alba on the Living The Gimmick podcast, Edge is expected to return to WWE as a babyface, including for his match at Summerslam in August. Edge is scheduled to return to WWE on the July 18 SmackDown in Houston, Texas, which will be the first WWE show featuring a full capacity of fans since March 2020. Edge turned heel earlier this year at Fastlane by attacking Daniel Bryan.

Edge can work this style rather well. Check out what he has done before:

FULL MATCH - Edge vs. Kurt Angle - Hair vs. Hair Match: WWE Judgment Day 2002

Edge & Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio & Brodus Clay: SmackDown, March 11, 2011

FULL MATCH - Edge vs. Kane - World Heavyweight Title Last Man Standing Match: SmackDown, Jan 7, 2011

Opinion: I’m curious to see how this is going to work, as Edge is someone who can jump back and forth without much trouble due to just how talented he is. He can work well in either way and he showed just how good he still could be back in the first few months of the year. Edge likely does not have much time left in the ring so letting him do something like this is a good idea.

What do you expect from Edge? Is he better as a babyface or a heel? Let us know in the comments below.
