At the 2020 Royal Rumble, WWE Hall of Famer Edge made his shocking return to in-ring action following a nine year absence due to injury, with many believing up until that point that the ‘Rated R Superstar’ would never be able to compete again. Since then, the former multi-time World Champion has had numerous matches with the likes of Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and AJ Styles, although Edge still has a long list of names he’d like to mix it up with.

Speaking to Matt Marchese on Sportsnet Today, Edge listed several of the names he’d hoped to work with before he made his return that he’s managed to interact with before naming a number of other WWE Superstars he has his eyes on. One name Edge highlighted was Montez Ford of The Street Profits, with the Hall of Famer believing that the tag team star has all the tools to be a champion.

“I had a list of guys that I wanted to get in the ring with and a list of talent that, if I can help in any way, I wanted to be able to try and help as well. On the female side, Rhea Ripley was one of those. So the whole formation of Judgment Day and all of that was to honestly try and help Damian Priest, Ripley, and Balor get a better foothold within the company because I thought they deserved it. I think they’re all really, really talented. If I look at it, I’ve wrestled AJ, I’ve wrestled Finn, I wrestled Priest, I wrestled Roman, I wrestled Daniel Bryan, you know, those were all guys on the list. I’d love to get in there with a guy like Montez Ford, because I really feel like his upside is that he’s going to be champ someday, I truly believe that. I’d like to get in there with Sami Zayn, we’ve never been in there together. I think that would be really cool, really fun, too. Kevin Owens, We wrestled once in Madison Square Garden, untelevised. It was a blast. He’s another guy.”


Continuing, Edge also noted that he’d love to get in there with Sheamus, pointing out that the pair have yet to have a singles match despite Sheamus getting his start in WWE and having a run with the WWE championship before Edge retired in 2011.

“I’d love to get in there with Sheamus. Honestly, almost, maybe more than anybody. Because I feel like at this stage in our careers, and with the story that we could tell now, the kind of match we could have now, it’d be so much better than it would have been 15 years ago, ad he’s a guy that no matter how many years we’ve both been in the company, we’ve never had a one-on-one match. That seems crazy to me. So I feel like that needs to be rectified. I’d like to get in with this incarnation of Drew McIntyre. It’d be good to get in there with Rey [Mysterio] again, you know? I’m just having fun. Honestly, that’s the beautiful part about it.”


In terms of Edge’s immediate future, he’s set to take on Finn Balor of the Judgement Day inside Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania 39 this weekend, with Balor seemingly set to utilise his ‘Demon’ persona.

Elsewhere on the card, Cody Rhodes is set to challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, whilst Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens will finally reunite to challenge The Usos for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships.
