Edge will now set his sights on the main event of WrestleMania 37 where he will face one of the top champions from either Raw or SmackDown.

In the main event of this week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, Edge and Randy Orton faced off for what could be the final time because Edge talked about wanting closure.

Edge won the match with a spear, thanks to a distraction from Alexa Bliss who was sitting on the ring post.

WWE: Alexa Bliss

Bliss spit up a black liquid of her mouth and that was enough to keep Orton distracted for Edge to hit the spear.

Edge will now set his sights on the main event of WrestleMania 37 where he will face one of the top champions from either Raw or SmackDown.

In the opening segment of Raw, Edge did not tell Drew McIntyre who he wanted to face at WrestleMania but said that McIntyre would find out soon.

Edge will appear on SmackDown this Friday Night, presumably to confront Universal Champion Roman Reigns.


SPOILERS


This week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw kicked off with a segment between Edge and Drew McIntyre but Edge did not say who he will challenge at WrestleMania 37.

WWE: Edge

Prior to Raw going on the air, Dave Meltzer reported that the plan is for Edge to challenge Roman Reigns for the United States Championship.

Meltzer said that he did not know when that match will be officially announced but that is the planned main event for the show.

Meltzer also noted that the Bianca Belair match is not 100 percent right now.

Edge returned to action last night as the 1st entrant in the Men’s Royal Rumble match.

He outlasted 29 other Superstars, including the number 2 entrant Randy Orton, to win the match and to earn a shot at one of the top champions at WrestleMania.

During WWE Backstage on Saturday, Paul Heyman gave a “spoiler” and said that Reigns’ match will be the true main event of Mania 37 so it looks like Reigns vs. Edge will close out the show.

Reigns defeated Kevin Owens in a Last Man Standing Match to retain his title at the Rumble pay-per-view and Bianca Belair won the Women’s Rumble match to earn a shot at one of the women’s titles.

WrestleMania 37 will take place across two nights on April 10 and 11 in Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium and the plan is for fans to be in attendance at a limited capacity.

Randy Orton and Edge both set for ‘Rubber match’

Advertisements

Edge and Randy Orton have been at the centre of one of the most interesting feuds in years on WWE television.

The Rated R Superstar returned to the company at the Royal Rumble in January, eliminating his former tag team partner from the showcase match.

That led to a Last Man Standing match on night two of WrestleMania 36.

The match lasted 36 minutes and concluded with Edge’s victory, seemingly putting the feud to bed.

However, hostilities were renewed at Backlash in a bout that was billed as the ‘Greatest Wrestling Match Ever’.

The two went 44 minutes in an instant classic, featuring spears, RKOs, Rock Bottoms, and all manner of false finishes.

The match ended with Orton’s victory, and there has to be a rubber match if the feud is to actually end properly.

And it appears that WWE has a plan for that.

It must be noted, of course, that Edge sustained an injury in the Backlash encounter with Orton, tearing his triceps and ruling himself out for up to eight months.

The two were set to face off at SummerSlam but his injury has put paid to that and Dave Meltzer, of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, has now reported that plans have been altered.

It will be an I Quit match, and the two will face off at WrestleMania 37, as transcribed by Cultaholic.

Meltzer is also said to have reported that Edge is currently working on the writing team for RAW, holding “significant creative influence”.

It seems as though he may well have a say in how the match with Orton goes down, then, when they do finally go head-to-head.

If it’s anything like their Backlash battle, we’re in for a treat.

WWE SummerSlam: Randy to face Drew Micntyre

Advertisements

WWE traditionally have four ‘big’ pay-per-views every year, with the biggest party of the summer joining WrestleMania, Survivor Series, and the Royal Rumble as their flagship shows.

Of course, this year’s SummerSlam will be something different to normal.

WWE have already confirmed that the show will not emanate from the planned Boston venue, the TD Garden, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Advertisements

It raises the prospect of another behind-closed-doors show, following in the footsteps of WrestleMania and Extreme Rules.

The main event of the show appears to have leaked ahead of time, though.

Drew McIntyre, of course, is the current WWE Champion, and he has successfully defended the belt on five occasions, beating The Big Show, Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley and MVP, in a tag match, and Dolph Ziggler.


And he is set to take on a new opponent at the biggest party of the summer.

Advertisements

Reports have claimed that he will be wrestling Randy Orton at the show, giving the Viper something to do as Edge continues his recovery from a triceps injury.

And Dave Meltzer, writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, claims that there is a possibility that Orton could actually win the match and, with it, the WWE Championship, per a transcription from WrestleZone.

The idea is that he would then take the championship into a match with Edge at WrestleMania.


Nothing is confirmed at this point, however, and Meltzer is said to have expressed concerns over the possibility of an Orton win, instead believing that younger stars should be receiving pushes.

The RKO-loving superstar has plenty of history with the world title, holding the WWE Championship nine times, and the World Heavyweight Championship on four separate occasions.

Drew, of course, is currently enjoying his first reign as champion and one has to wonder if making the switch at this point makes all that much sense.

McIntyre has had plenty of excellent matches while holding the belt but he is yet to really get into a meaty feud for the title, and having him give it up this quickly feels like it could be a major error.

Orton is in his gear now. The referee tells Edge if he can get to his feet then they will start the match. Edge finally gets up and the bell rings. Edge swings but Orton dodges it and drops him with another RKO. The referee counts.

Good luck, also fuck off – Randy Orton tells Matt


Matt Riddle might be liked in NXT as 1/2 of the Tag Team Champions. He’s not winning many friends on the main roster.

The Original Bro tweeted out about his big NXT TakeOver: Portland win. He called himself and Pete Dunne “stallions.” Randy Orton saw this and he had his own retort.


Matt Riddle might have an entire laundry list of opponents that he wants to face who don’t want anything to do with him by the time he gets called to the main roster.

Hated you. Now I get it. Good luck. Also f*ck off.
