Edge: I'd Like To Wrestle Montez Ford, He's Going To Be Champion Some Day

From Montez Ford to Rey Mysterio, Edge still has names on his list of matches he'd like to have before he retires.

Edge returned to WWE after nearly a decade in retirement at the 2020 Royal Rumble event. Since then, he has had numerous matches with names such as AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns.

Speaking to Matt Marchese on Sportsnet Today, Edge names some competitors he still wants to face before retiring completely. Specifically, Edge noted that he wants to wrestle Montez Ford, believing that Montez can become champion one day.

"I had a list of guys that I wanted to get in the ring with and a list of talent that, if I can help in any way, I wanted to be able to try and help as well. On the female side, Rhea Ripley was one of those. So the whole formation of Judgment Day and all of that was to honestly try and help Damian Priest, Ripley, and Balor get a better foothold within the company because I thought they deserved it. I think they're all really, really talented," said Edge. "If I look at it, I've wrestled AJ, I've wrestled Finn, I wrestled Priest, I wrestled Roman, I wrestled Daniel Bryan, you know, those were all guys on the list.

"I'd love to get in there with a guy like Montez Ford, because I really feel like his upside is that he's going to be champ someday, I truly believe that," Edge continued. "I'd like to get in there with Sami Zayn, we've never been in there together. I think that would be really cool, really fun, too. Kevin Owens, We wrestled once in Madison Square Garden, untelevised. It was a blast. He's another guy."

Continuing on, "The Rated R Superstar" says he wants to get in the ring with Sheamus almost more than anyone else on the roster. Edge notes that he and Sheamus have never had a singles match, despite getting his start in WWE and having a run with the WWE championship before Edge retired in 2011

"I'd love to get in there with Sheamus. Honestly, almost, maybe more than anybody. Because I feel like at this stage in our careers, and with the story that we could tell now, the kind of match we could have now, it'd be so much better than it would have been 15 years ago, ad he's a guy that no matter how many years we've both been in the company, we've never had a one-on-one match. That seems crazy to me. So I feel like that needs to be rectified," he said." I'd like to get in with this incarnation Drew McIntyre. It'd be good to get in there with Rey [Mysterio] again, you know? I'm just having fun. Honestly, that's the beautiful part about it."

Edge has noted that his time in the ring is coming to an end sooner rather than later, and he previously stated that he would like to retire in Toronto. Fans can read comments from Edge on that matter at this link.
