Inside sources, including Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, hint at an increasing belief among WWE and AEW talents that Edge might be switching sides. As reported by Sapp, chatter among AEW stars began around mid-August, suggesting that Edge’s move to AEW was imminent. Moreover, a recent statement from a WWE insider alluded to it being almost certain that Edge would join AEW.
Interestingly, Edge has been omitted from WWE’s backstage lists, and while he is still featured on WWE.com’s roster, such updates are generally delayed until official announcements. Furthermore, fans noticed his absence from the recent SmackDown introduction.
Edge’s Branding Insights
On the topic of Edge’s branding, Sapp shed light on WWE’s ownership claims. He mentioned that WWE may not have the sole rights to Edge’s popular theme song “Metalingus.” Although there’s potential for a negotiation, the prevailing sentiment is that WWE might not find it essential. In addition, Sapp disclosed that WWE doesn’t hold a license for another of Edge’s themes, “Never Gonna Stop” by Rob Zombie. It’s worth noting, however, that the name “Edge” remains under WWE’s domain, preventing its usage elsewhere.
