Speculation about Edge’s match against Sheamus on WWE Smackdown in Toronto

Edge is scheduled to have a match against Sheamus on the August 18th 2023 edition of WWE Smackdown in Toronto, Canada. During the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com speculated how this match could be the final one for Edge…

“There’s a big thing here. A year ago, Edge had said he was gonna retire at the (2023) summer show in Toronto. And Ron Hutchinson, who is Edge’s trainer, and has known Edge for 30 years, he basically said that this is Edge’s last match. They certainly did not (build it up like that). But that was interesting where he said it’s probably – it’s most likely Edge’s last match.”

“I think the idea was that Edge thought that maybe SummerSlam was gonna be in Toronto and was hoping for that, and then that would be where he would retire. Because he wants to retire in Toronto, and this is the year he was talking about retiring, for real, the second retirement. This is the last Toronto show for a while, I mean, they’ll be another one. So I don’t know if this is the retirement, they’re not billing it as such, but his trainer said that it’s probably his last match.” (quotes courtesy of WrestleTalk.com)
