WWE confirm hugely popular Hall of Famer for SmackDown Live's 900th show next week

WWE Smackdown - Sydney

SmackDown Live has already announced that The Undertaker will be returning for their 900th episode next Tuesday, but it appears the Blue Brand has plenty more surprises up their sleeves.

Bringing The Deadman back for the November 15 show makes the world of sense. He is an icon in the wrestling industry and he helped make SmackDown a viable option against Raw in the 2000s.

However, he wasn't the only main event attraction that the WWE's longtime 'B show' created.

The Rated-R superstar, Edge, was also a staple of the show from 2007-2010. During his time with the Blue Brand, Edge had compelling storylines with Vickie Guerrero and indeed, The Undertaker that certainly kept SmackDown alive and well.

One could argue that when 'Taker and Edge stopped performing full-time and/or retired, the show lost some of its attraction.

However, Shane McMahon announced today that Edge will be joining The Phenom in a one-off comeback for the SD Live's 900th show and he will be hosting an edition of 'The Cutting Edge'.

Edge was a huge success in the WWE and had a well-worthy Hall of Fame career. He won the tag team titles 14 times - seven times with Christian - won the intercontinental title five times, the world title eleven times on top of victories in the 2001 King of the Ring, 2010 Royal Rumble, 2005 Money in the Bank, and held the briefcase for a second time after winning it from Mr. Kennedy.

Edge is a bona fide legend a fine talker on the mic. His show with Christian on the WWE Network 'The Edge and Christian Show That Totally Reeks of Awesomeness' has reminded the WWE Universe of his comedic timing and it will be a joy to see who he works with on SD Live's 900th show.
