Edge To Appear On 1/27 WWE Raw, Seth Rollins & Buddy Murphy To Defend Raw Tag Team Titles

After Edge made a shocking return at the Royal Rumble, the WWE Hall of Famer is set to make an appearance on tonight's episode of Raw.

WWE announced that Edge will appear on Raw tonight. However, WWE did not specify what Edge will do or say on the show. Edge had his first match since 2011 when he came in at No. 21 at last night's Royal Rumble match and made it all the way to the final three.

3 PM EST: WWE Backlash 2021 Predictions W/ Sean Ross Sapp And Jennifer Louise

From WWE:

Following a dramatic in-ring return during the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble Match, WWE Hall of Famer Edge is returning to Monday Night Raw.

The Rated-R Superstar, who retired due to injury in 2011, has been the subject of near-constant rumors ever since he leveled Elias with a Spear at SummerSlam 2019 — speculation he shot down at every turn. But he appeared in the Men’s Rumble all the same, entering at No. 21 and lasting until the final three with SmackDown’s Roman Reigns and eventual winner Drew McIntyre. What the future holds for the former WWE Champion is still unclear. But as he returns to the brand where he once took his final bow, it’s safe to say we’ll see no small amount of emotion, triumph and, perhaps, one final opportunity? Anything is possible.

Also announced for Raw is Seth Rollins & Buddy Murphy defending their Raw Tag Team titles against the duo of Kevin Owens & Samoa Joe. Rollins & Murphy won the titles when they defeated The Viking Raiders on January 20.

From WWE:

In last night’s Men’s Royal Rumble Match, Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe set aside their recent alliance in pursuit of main-eventing WrestleMania. Now that that’s out of the way, they’ll regroup and focus on their common enemies.

The pair will challenge recent tormentor Seth Rollins and his new acolyte, Buddy Murphy, for the Raw Tag Team Titles in a match that will test the strength of both impressive young alliances. For Rollins & Murphy, it’s a test to see if they can build off the improbable win over The Viking Raiders that made them champions. And, for Owens & Joe, it’ll go a long way toward showing whether this is a true partnership that can weather ups and downs or just a brief alliance of convenience.

Fightful will have live coverage of Raw tonight with a post-show podcast.
