While he has yet to make any definitive moves regarding the future of his career, a prevalent rumor is that he could join the ranks of AEW. Chris Jericho, someone who has held Tag Team Championship gold with Edge in the past, reflected on what "The Rated R Superstar" could add to the promotion, comparing Edge's current status to his own status when he left WWE as somebody who had done everything they possibly could in that promotion.

"Well, I mean, who's to say for sure? But if you look at Chris Jericho, for example, where I was in WWE, there really wasn't much more that I could do there. You're there for many years, and you've wrestled everybody, and it's great. But it's always good to shock people, and to show up with a new kind of mission," Jericho said to Josh Martinez on the Superstar Crossover podcast. "So I think somebody like Edge, you know, there's a lot of guys over [in WWE] like this. They've kind of done everything they can do there. For him to come to AEW with a whole fresh new coat of paint, a whole new roster of matches that he can have, obviously a new name, which would then, knowing him, knowing me, what I would do is a whole new look—a whole new mindset. That's the best thing about having AEW and about us being as successful as we are, is that there's now a viable alternative, I don't wanna say, competitor, because it's not that, but you can now go to either company."

Edge recently noted that he had a contract offer from WWE "in his inbox" but had yet to make a decision. Learn more here.
