Edge Announces WWE Royal Rumble Ring Return

WWE Hall of Famer Edge will be making his ring return at the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view.

Last night’s Rumble go-home edition of RAW saw Edge deliver a pre-recorded promo where he announced that he will be returning to action in the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match next Sunday.

There are now 14 open spots for the 30-Man Royal Rumble Match. Edge joins Daniel Bryan, WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Otis, The Miz, Jey Uso, Cesaro, Jeff Hardy, Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn, SmackDown Tag Team Champion Dolph Ziggler, WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E, Sheamus, and John Morrison as confirmed entrants.

The Rated R Superstar has been out of action since suffering a torn triceps during the loss to Randy Orton at the 2020 WWE Backlash pay-per-view last June. Edge came out of retirement at the 2020 Royal Rumble, and then made his in-ring return to singles action at WrestleMania 36, where he defeated Orton in a Last Man Standing match.

The 2021 Royal Rumble pay-per-view will take place on January 31 from Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL
