In his "Grilling J.R. " podcast, Jim Ross discussed the possibility of Edge joining AEW. Ross is aware of how important Edge would be given everything he has achieved in the backfield. However, he is not optimistic that Edge will really come to AEW.

“Of course it is, that’s a no brainer. In all the time that I was around the talent this past weekend, I never heard one talent ask me about Edge. It just didn’t come up. It was business at hand to take care of.

Maybe, after the show at the after party, which I did not attend. It’d be great. I haven’t given it much thought. How about Edge and Kenny Omega? Edge and Will Ospreay. There are a million ways to monetize this potential, but I don’t have any inside information, I don’t know if it’s even feasible.

I have heard, through the grapevine, that WWE has an offer on the table for him that is significant, as it should be. I don’t know. I think it would be a long shot at very best that Edge comes to work at AEW”. - he said, as quoted by pwmania.com!

Jim Ross on Edge's arrival in WWE

Ross was the main man when it came to Edge's arrival in WWE. Edge and Christian arrived as young guys, and at that time they weren't making huge money. “I signed him and Christian on the same day, together, back in the day to the grandiose salary of $210 a week.

They were indie wrestlers from Toronto, so they weren’t making any money. Not only did I do that, I think I might have advanced them some cash. I know that I paid off Edge’s college debt. I remember doing that. We wrote the college check to pay for his student loans. WWE paid for Edge’s student loans, thanks to JR, I thought it was the right thing to do”.
