Edge retired in 2011 after sustaining a neck injury. The Spinal stenosis that plagued him got so severe that he was forced to abandon the ring forever. If he chose not to, he risked paralysis or even death. 

As a result, he had to relinquish his newly won World Heavyweight Championship, a moment that broke the hearts of thousands of fans. A decade later, Edge has returned and wants back the title that he never lost. 

His intentions were made clear in his promo, but one thing remains open-ended. Considering the fact that the World Heavyweight Championship no longer exists, we wonder which title Edge will go after.

Edge has to choose between Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns

There is the WWE Championship held by Drew McIntyre that has stayed in the Raw Brand for well over two years now and there is the WWE Universal Championship held by the invincible Roman Reigns on SmackDown. 

Considering the fact that the current WWE Championship is a merge of the Heavyweight and old WWE Championships, Edge may go after Drew McIntyre on Raw. 

However, ‘The Scottish Psychopath’ has just kick-started a feud against Goldberg. There is a high possibility that his feud with the WCW legend will go on till WrestleMania.

Roman Reigns, on the other hand, is nearing the end of his feud with Kevin Owens, and it looks like he will retain that Championship. ‘The Rated-R Superstar’ seems like a great option to end Reigns’ run. 

Both choices are, of course, an uphill battle for Edge. He isn’t as agile as he once was and can’t risk musk damage to his body. McIntyre and Reigns, on the other hand, are in their primes and can deal a lot more damage.
