Madison Square Garden has been ‘home’ to WWE for over five decades and the arena has a special place inside wrestlers’ hearts and fans as well.

WWE legend Edge took to Twitter and delivered an emotional message when he announced ‘Edge vs Rollins II’ for next week’s SmackDown. He further wrote that it might be the last time that he performs in the famous arena.

“Friday. Smackdown. Edge vs Rollins II. The Garden. I never thought I’d have the opportunity to wrestle in MSG again. Realistically this could be the last time I do. Let’s blow the roof off New York.” Edge wrote.

‘The Rated-R Superstar’ has a rich history of competing inside the Madison Square Garden area. His most notable was against Rey Mysterio in the 2008 Royal Rumble PPV, where he retained the WWE Championship in a classic match.

This will be Edge’s first inside the arena after 2010, where he fought against Randy Orton in a losing effort. However, Edge will have a golden opportunity to close his MSG chapter with a win against Seth Rollins next week.
