Edge announced his retirement once again today, this time from podcast duties. The Rated R-Superstar hosted the Pod of Awesomeness with his childhood friend and former tag-team partner Christian for a long time, and announced that this week’s episode will be his final appearance on the show.
Edge and Christain hosted the show for the last two and a half years, and the show will now be hosted by Christian alone. Edge didn’t reveal the reason behind his ‘retirement” but family-time could be a reason behind his decision.
Edge’s wife Beth Phoenix recently joined NXT commentary team and has done a good job so far along with Mauro Ranallo and Nigel McGuinness. Beth’s involvement with WWE could be a reason behind Edge taking a leave.
Elsewhere, Universal Champion Seth Rollins replied to Sasha Banks and disrespected the Boss in a massive way. Rollins tweeted about his match with Rey Mysterio and his impending encounter against Bray Wyatt at Hell in a Cell, which was mimicked by Banks in a similar tweet of her own.
Rollins took insult to this jab, and taunted Sasha Banks by calling her an under-performer. The Universal Champion said that he is not looking forward to Banks’ match against Alexa Bliss.
Rollins took a shot at Banks by saying that her below-par matches are the reason why she isn’t in the main-event picture of WWE. Rollins’ fiance Becky Lynch is currently embroiled in a deeply personal rivalry with The Boss, and is set to defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Banks inside Hell in a Cell.
“This is a match I’ve been looking forward to as much as every other match you’ve ever had…aka, not at all. Luckily for me, you’ll underdeliver like you always do and continue to wonder why you’re not in more main events.”, tweeted Rollins
According to the latest update, Seth Rollins’ account no longer exists. It is unknown whether it was deleted by Rollins himself due to backlash for his tweet.
Seth Rollins continues to get involved with her fiance’s rivalries, after getting involved with the Lynch-Lacey Evans saga earlier this summer.
The new IT couple of the company never back down from a challenge and take no prisoners from anyone.
