Rumors of Edge's WWE contract expiry have given some fans a glimmer of hope about a potential reunion with his friend Christian Cage.
However, on the Keepin' It 100 podcast, Disco Inferno and Konnan expressed their belief that Edge would likely remain with WWE until retirement.
"If he [Edge] says he’s going to retire, he’s probably going to retire. I don’t see Edge going to AEW to be honest with you, because WWE’s paying him good, pretty penny, you know," Disco Inferno said. [From 00:50 – 00:59]
Konnan cited factors such as a good salary, a favorable schedule, the utilization of his wife Beth Phoenix, and creative control as reasons for him to stay loyal to his stomping grounds:
"Right. […] With an excellent schedule and they use his wife [Beth Pheonix], and he probably has complete creative control. Why would he go anywhere?" [From 01:00 – 01:08]
Only time will tell whether the Canadian star will snub WWE and jump ship to All Elite Wrestling.
