What is being said about Edge’s contractual status with WWE heading into 2023

Edge has been off WWE television since the injury angle with his wife Beth Phoenix at the 2023 Extreme Rules PLE in October. According to Fightful Select, WWE sources confirmed that Edge is on a contract with limited dates and the outlet noted the following…

“One WWE higher up said that the vignettes this past summer were a way to ‘buy some weeks’ on television before Edge’s return, and give them a little more time in order to build to some important matches throughout the rest of the year, which happened with the [Finn] Balor and [Damian] Priest matchups.”

Edge reportedly signed a three-year contract in 2020 for 25 appearances and five matches per year although he ended up doing ten matches in 2021 and six in 2022. At this time, it hasn’t been confirmed if his deal will be up soon but it was possibly frozen due to a torn triceps injury that took him out of action for the last six months of 2020.

Edge is rumored to be facing Balor (possibly inside Hell in a Cell) at the 2023 Royal Rumble PLE.
