WWE Hall of Famer Edge shocked the WWE Universe as he returned to the ring to compete in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match. The Rated R-Superstar was linked with intense speculation of an in-ring return even though he repeatedly denied any possibility of one more match.
The Canadian superstar retired in 2011 on the night following WrestleMania 27 after being diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis.
The former World Heavyweight Champion has stated that if he wrestles again then the results would be catastrophically as he would risk paralysis.
But the rumours were true as the 11-time world champion entered the 30-men over-the-top-rope battle royal at No20 and the Minute Maid Park erupted in cheers with his inspirational return.
The ex-WWE Champion was visibly emotional with the reception as he struck his signature poses.at the entrance ramp.
Dolph Ziggler, AJ Styles, Drew McIntyre and Karl Anderson watched in absolute shock as the legendary wrestler made his way to the ring.
Edge went on to take every single one of his opponents with thunderous Spears and also eliminated Styles.
WWE reportedly have big plans for the tag team specialist and if the Royal Rumble is any indication as to how things will go then fans can expect to see him in the ring with Styles.
