WWE appears to be preparing for its next big annual event, the quintessential summer Big Four: Summerslam. After a terrible year of pandemic, the Stamford company is considering staging such an important event next August, that it will even put Wrestlemania aside, given that Summerslam will be the first Big Four to be staged after the return of WWE on the road and will therefore have a much more important and meticulous construction by the federation for its fans, returning to the arenas that have remained empty for far too long between 2020 and 2021.
Among the many names that would be discussed within the WWE backstage as possible seeded usable for the ppv, besides the names of John Cena and Brock Lesnar, there is one that is practically already confirmed. We are talking about the WWE Hall of Famer, the Rated R Superstar, Edge, who was also advertised for his return to the scene in the episode of Smackdown which will see the public live after more than a year of world pandemic, on July 16th.
Apparently, the Canadian himself would have requested to be able to fight against the former Universal Champion, as well as former WWE Champion, Seth Rollins, in Summerslam, with the McMahon company willingly accepting this request.
As revealed also by the well-known site Wrestle Votes: "Along with Roman Reigns vs John Cena for Summerslam, WWE is also planning to stage another cartel-heavy match on the Smackdown side. Our sources tell us that the idea for the moment is to have Seth Rollins vs Edge for the first time in history."
Apparently, according to another update from overseas, the feud between Cesaro and Seth Rollins should have ended. the other night in Hell in a Cell, right inside the cage of the same name and the match should initially have seen the Swiss as the winner.
The WWE then changed its mind when the request of Edge arrived, who obviously drastically changed the company's plans, turning Rollins' defeat into a victory, but keeping it more sober and less devastating for the character of Cesaro, remaining a single match and not a Hell in a Cell match.
By doing so, Rollins' status was safeguarded, who in the face of a defeat would otherwise not have been able to go face to face with Edge in the next great WWE event.
