10 Stupidest Things WWE Superstars Have Done In 2021 (So Far)
The enormous response Edge received from the socially distanced WrestleMania 37 crowd spoke volumes about just how beloved the 'Rated-R Superstar' still is.
It was easily forgotten on the way to the 'Show Of Shows'.
His 2020 Royal Rumble return may as well have taken place weeks after his 2011 retirement, for all the pandemic played with time and space. The poor f*cker killed himself for nine years to earn that response, but had the rest of his plans torn up by an ongoing global b*stard that...sort of turned him into one.
With nothing but pop.wav to greet him the following year, Edge was given a surprising Royal Rumble victory as a makegood for a year gone slightly askew. Gritty Growly Adam was a little bit vanilla, but darker developments were afoot that seemed destined to get him booed by the time the company reached 'The Grandest Stage'. After negging Drew McIntyre on Raw and Finn Bálor and Pete Dunne in NXT, Edge chose SmackDown's Roman Reigns, but then became so obsessed with a match he had a golden ticket for that he got annoyed at a possible change of opponent.
WWE never addressed why this was, instead electing to weave Daniel Bryan into the conversation just to find a way to logically add him to the match. It was morbidly fun to watch things seemingly slipping from Edge's grasp as if they were strands of his own hair when he sets up a spear, but it just about killed any chance he had of winning the big one. He'd gone from Royal Rumble winner to third man in his own guaranteed title shot, and seemingly done it all himself.
