Tony Khan’s helmed promotion saw a bunch of former WWE stars resuming their dance in the AEW ring in the past few years. This barely came as a surprise to anybody as Khan always plays big on his business moves and is a crackerjack in welcoming new talents (especially those who came with a WWE tag) to the roster. But despite that, every time the news of any former WWE starlet teasing debut in the rival promotion gets people jabbering for the right reasons. This time, Hall of Famer Edge is the new bee who’s creating the buzz in the same vein.

Edge achieved every bit of success between the ropes throughout his storied wrestling career. From being a Ruthless era icon to winning multiple world championship belts, the veteran cemented his legacy as a distinguished product in the company’s history. Now, WWE rightly picked his 25th year anniversary as a perfect occasion to pay homage to the bigwig on this week’s blue brand show that will emanate from his hometown of Toronto. Lately, there have also been talks about the high chance of Edge marking the end of his illustrious WWE stint on the same day following his scheduled bout against Sheamus.

With that information swirling over the internet, another notion that people have been widely popularizing is Edge jumping ship to AEW.

Now, the unlikely rumor edges closer to coming to reality due to the current AEW tag team champions FTR. Dax Harwood, one half of the marquee tag team, snapped a picture with Edge and his wife Beth Phoenix and posted that on social media.

It came as nothing but a clear hint of Edge’s AEW transition.

However, Edge and Hardwood have had a long connection to cherish.

Edge’s real-life bond with Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler

The WWE star returned to the fold, back in 2020 after his first retirement and attained several plaudits ever since. He penned a three-year contract upon his re-arrival, which is nearing an end. But the person responsible for initiating his second run in the company is none other than the legendary FTR. They helped him to prep up to compete in the WWE ring again.

Also in 2021, Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood aided him during his phenomenal bout against Seth Rollins.

On top of it, the star attended an indie event to watch FTR and some of his other friends fight last year. Now, given their well-documented chemistry, we need to see if we can have a tag team match or a single match between Edge and Dax Harwood following his potential AEW debut or not.
