“Edge went out on a stretcher and was taken away in an ambulance. This will explain Edge not being around for a few months. Since Edge only works part-time it is easy to do injury angles to explain his being gone but there’s also a limit on how many you can do before it feels like you’ve seen it before.”

The storyline injury was continued by his wife, Beth Phoenix, on WWE NXT.

At the moment, it looks like Edge vs Seth Rollins feud has ended, with both wrestlers holding one win over the other. It is unsure when ‘The Ultimate Opportunist‘ will be back in the squared circle, if the Observer is to be believed.

Seth Rollins without an opponent after Edge

The Rollins vs Edge was one of the hottest angles in WWE. After the storyline injury, ‘The Architect‘ is left with no opponent to fight at Extreme Rules 2021. However, his other half, Becky Lynch, is booked to face Bianca Belair for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship.
