    Basically this.

    Always felt Edge was incredibly dull in the ring (though he had many great spectacle matches, I'd say most of his matches bore me). I just dont see the appeal of him returning and I dont think theres any dream match with him either. Battle of the Spears? Battle of Canada? There's no selling point to an Edge return. I'll stop short of saying I hope he never wrestles, if he does decide to do more matches, I hope he's healthy af and that the matches arent embarassing and that he's fulfilled.

    Edge was a bang average wrestler, and particularly in his later career was pretty bad. Kind of like Triple H, he was in enough prominent positions where he was almost guaranteed to churn out some great matches (gimmick matches galore, working with fantastic wrestlers at every stage of his career, every match given time and build). To me, he's the proof that great matches =/= great wrestler.

    Re: Edge Return?

    I never had a problem with Edge's in-ring abilities, he may not have been amazing but he wasn't terrible. Plus, we all know he was never the same after the neck injury. What made him great was his heel character, he was one of the best bad guy characters to ever do it and had a bunch of charisma to push him forward. No matter what people thought of him, he was always entertaining. Despite that, no, I don't want to see him back in the ring, he has nothing left to prove and it makes no sense to risk behing paralyzed just to re-capture 15 minutes of glory. I'd much rather see him as like a heel manager maybe.

    It would be good if he makes a comeback before Wrestle Mania!

    Edge didn't exactly set the world on fire (for me at least) in the ring during his main event years, but his gimmick was what made him great and it was booked to perfection. He was the ultimate opportunist and that's how he was able to rack up 11 world title reigns between 2006-2011, which is crazy.

    I'd still mark out if he made a Rumble appearance but hopefully it's a one-off thing. No need to see Edge in a match of his own in 2020.

    Edge had one of the coolest "looks" of anyone in the post-Attitude years. His in-ring ability was average, his mic skills were really good, and he had one of the creepiest heel smiles ever.

    Oh, we're talking about Edge returning and not appreciating Edge's HOF career? Yeah, there's no need for a return.

    Re: Edge Return?

    I dont really see the point in him returning, there's nothing that'd excite me beyond the initial return buzz. Nothing he could do with any of the untalented bums on the roster today would compare to what he was doing 10-15 years ago.

    He really really doesn't need to. Like the brief pop is not worth it. You get the same pop making a spear once a year on a random jobber. Just don't do this.

    This is also aside from the fact that aside from his murdering Cena post EC 2006 (that year right?), Ive never really been entertained by him. He's always had a cool name, look, persona. He was also a really solid talker. But he doesnt have a lot of matches I enjoyed. I never reacted to him to the point that Id hate or like him because he was way too cool to ever be an effective heel for me especially since idgaf about Cena at the time. And face Edge did even less for me.

    But really, if he wants to come back then he should find a different role to try his hand at. Could be as a manager, GM, or giving the young dudes a hand in crafting a good character.

    Re: Edge Return?

    Still think this is a bad idea for him. Only he knows his health, and whether he can or not so if he does, he does. I'm about as anti Edge as possible so his return wouldn't pop me at all.

    I do like a manger role for him because he is quite funny and quick witted, despite me never really caring for his non E&C promos. He would do well at that.

    Re: Edge Return?

    I loved Edge. He was the ultimate slimy as fuck heel but I do not think he should be making a comeback as far as in ring is concerned. It's way way way too risky and unless WWE are offering him blood money from the Saudi's then I don't see why even he would want to do this. A manager? Sure, if he's a heel.
