Backstage news on plans for Randy Orton and Edge At WrestleMania 37

 
 

WWE has already conducted a massive main event caliber match for WrestleMania 37.

According to a report from the latest Wrestling Newsletter, Edge and Randy Orton are set to resume their rivalry with a big rubber match at the WWE flagship show next March: “The current plan is for Edge vs. Orton in a match ‘I Quit ‘to be one of the best games next year in Los Angeles … WWE already had plans for the Edge vs. Orton trilogy to continue at SummerSlam this year, but that was before Edge suffered a triceps injury during’ The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever ‘at WWE Backlash in June, which was won by Orton.”

Immediately after WWE announced that SummerSlam will no longer take place in Boston, WrestleMania 37 status is up in the air due to the Covid-19 pandemic, as is the case with all of the company’s upcoming pay-per-view payments. The same is true for Edge, who is currently out of action after suffering a torn triceps while filming his polarizer “Greatest Wrestling Match Ever” against Orton in Backlash last month. Although Edge has appeared on television since then and WWE kept his options open by making it clear that his feud with Orton has not ended, WWE was forced to scrap a major match between the two that was originally slated for SummerSlam.

That would have been the rubber match, and probably the escape bout, to what has been the biggest and best rivalry in WWE in 2020. The dispute between Edge and Orton had pretty much everything against him, including returning Edge. from a nine-year hiatus, the fact that it’s a dispute between two older stars and the reality that it’s being booked during an era when most major WWE rivalries simply have not been met. Edge vs. Orton, however, has over-delivered himself in every sense of the word.

This unmissable rivalry has not only highlighted Edge’s incredible talents after nearly a decade out of the ring but has helped cement “The Viper,” who has long been an incredibly polarizing figure in professional wrestling, as one one of the best fighters of all time. He fastened a pair of boots. The only downside to their rivalry came during their WrestleMania 36 match that was too long and lengthy, but the all-time pair of greats have more than made up for that disappointing match with their Backlash match, consistently stellar promotions and heated rivalry. that no other enmity has lived until this year.

The idea that two established veterans are on the way for a possible WrestleMania 37 main event game is not something that sits well with die-hard fans of WWE, who are known to loathe everything to do with part-time workers. But the rivalry between Edge and Orton has been so good that it was on its way to being the main event of SummerSlam before Edge’s injury forced WWE’s hand. Now, a rivalry that was forged for decades, but started at Royal Rumble 2020 in January, plays a key role in WWE programming even in early 2021, when Edge will likely fully recover from his latest major injury.

Although a clear timeline for Edge’s return has not been revealed, “The Rated R Superstar” recently said that he now “listens” to his body when it comes to injuries, indicating that his pending return will be a classic case of waiting and … see. If Edge returns, the obvious direction WWE must take is to rekindle his enmity with Orton, who is by far the best villain in the business right now and could very well have a WWE Championship reign on his way. near future.

Even though Orton is one of WWE’s most controversial stars, he’s likely to continue to push hard due to the great work he’s done lately and WWE’s new philosophy of focusing on stars of yesteryear, like Big Show and Ric Flair. As long as he’s performing at an elite level as he has been this year, Orton is poised to hold his place at the top of the card for the foreseeable future, virtually guaranteeing a WrestleMania 37 match despite that payout… by sight, it is very far away and its state remains in the air due to Covid-19.

Given that WWE recently made a series of last-second changes to its schedule, particularly on Raw, the Orton’s WrestleMania 37 match is far from set in stone, especially given the possibility of Edge returning sooner than expected. . while the WWE audience continues to plummet.

But if Orton vs. Edge is still the plan, it should be the rare ‘special attraction’ match resulting in a consistently great lineup.
