With some Hall of Famers wanting to steal the spotlight on WWE programming on a weekly basis still in 2018, Edge has taken a back seat and let the future do their thing.
Despite his career being cut short early, the Canadian has never longed for a return to the ring, instead settling down with his family and wife, former WWE Women's Champion Beth Phoenix.
Edge's most recent appearance on WWE television came on SmackDown's 1000th episode, hosting a special edition of The Cutting Edge whilst Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair were in the middle of their feud.
But it was Lynch who got all the attention in the midst of her heel turn, with a barbaric comment surrounding Edge's 2011 retirement due to a neck injury.
Lynch's line telling the 11-time world champion to not hurt himself climbing through the ropes did not spark the intended reaction, with the Lasskicker being cheered by large sections of the WWE Universe.
The Rated-R Superstar discussed Lynch's meteoric rise to the top of WWE and the recent Nia Jax incident on his tour of the United Kingdom with Inside The Ropes, and believes she's set for a marquee match at WrestleMania 35.
"I think it will do nothing but help her," said Edge, "because all I saw when I woke up this morning was [her with blood all over her face] - it’s everywhere.
"So now what I assumed would be the match at WrestleMania - Charlotte versus Ronda - is happening this weekend, so think about what this means now, it’s Becky versus Ronda now.
"I truly think that their hand has been forced, it’s like ‘right, what is the marquee matchup after this weekend - and it’s Becky against Rousey’.
"I think the company have accepted this organic tsunami that is Becky’s popularity."
Since Edge said all of this, things may have changed somewhat. Flair was turned heel after her match with Rousey at Survivor Series, and some are speculating that she will be shoe-horned into WrestleMania plans.
Everyone now knows though that the money match for Mania is Lynch against Rousey, and you can bet the fans will have something to say if it doesn't happen.
