WWE Hall of Famer Edge is also in the plans of the WWE creative team for a huge showdown in the WWE SummerSlam 2021 pay-per-view, which is scheduled to take place on Ausgust 21 at the Allegiant Stadium in the Las Vegas suburb of Paradise, Nevada..
WWE is reportedly keen to set-up a first-ever match between Seth Rollins and Edge during the biggest party of the summer. While the Rated R Superstar has made a name for himself capitalizing on opportunities throughout his career, Rollins is often touted to be a modern-day version of Edge as he followed the same path.
This is the reason why WWE Universe has always dreamt of this match which could become a reality, as per reports from WrestleVotes. WWE plans to stack up the card of the biggest event of the summer, as much as possible and Smackdown is expected to deliver the second biggest match (Reigns vs. Cena being the first one) of this coming summer’s biggest event.
It was recently reported (by Florida-based sports reporter Jon Alba) that WWE has plans for Edge to wrestle at SummerSlam as a babyface. Then WWE started promoting him for several dates this summer beginning with the July 16 SmackDown episode from Houston, the first show back on the road with fans in attendance.
As it stands, the veteran is booked for seven appearances on the following Friday Night SmackDown and Super shows:
* SmackDown – Friday, July 16 at the Toyota Center in Houston
* SmackDown – Friday, July 30 at the Target Center in Minneapolis
* SmackDown – Friday, August 6 at the Amalie Arena in Tampa
* Supershow – Saturday, August 14 at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte
* SmackDown – Friday, August 20 at the Phoenix Suns Arena in Phoenix
* SmackDown – Friday, August 27 at the Simmons Bank Arena in North Little Rock
* SmackDown – Friday, September 3 at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville
Going by these advertisements posted by WWE’s touring department, we assume that Edge will be part of the entire SummerSlam 2021 buildup through August, while he will continue to make appearances even after the PPV event. But there’s no update on how WWE will start building up Edge vs. Seth Rollins program.
It should be noted that these two men share a history that dates back to 2014, when Rollins threatened to break Edge’s neck if John Cena didn’t agree to put The Authority – Triple H & Stephanie McMahon, back in power to run WWE.
After his in-ring comeback, Edge got a little payback on Rollins during the Men’s Royal Rumble 2020 match. He also eliminated Rollins from the Men’s Royal Rumble 2021 match, earlier this year. But on both occasions, their meeting during these matches was very short.
Edge has been absent from WWE TV since the WrestleMania 37 Night Two main event, which saw Roman Reigns retain his Universal Title in a Triple Threat also featuring Daniel Bryan. As for Rollins, he defeated Cesaro at the recently bygone Hell in a Cell 2021 PPV, this past Sunday.
