There are instances where a WWE Hall of Famer would make his return for a match and two and be sidelined after that. However, this is not the case with Edge. The former World Champion has still got it and has proved that he belongs in the ring rather than sitting at home.

Edge, since his return, has faced superstars such as Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, and Seth Rollins. His recent match against Seth Rollins at SummerSlam had it all. The bout featured some great promos and impressive moves in the ring.
