It was announced this past week on Raw that Randy Orton and Edge would be returning to WWE TV the night after Money in the Bank for the first time since their epic encounter back at WrestleMania.
It was a match that was worthy of ending any feud as Edge finally became the Last Man Standing and gained some revenge for the attack that he was subjected to at the hands of The Viper back in January.
Edge has reportedly signed a three year deal with WWE, so he was expected to return to the ring at some point, but according to a report by Dave Meltzer on Saturday Night Main Event, WWE has had to make the decision to bring Orton and Edge back because of the recent decline in ratings.
The company obviously needs to bring back some of their bigger stars and hope that these are enough to bring audience numbers back, but at present, it’s unknown as to whether or not Edge and Orton will be continuing their feud heading into SummerSlam.
Over on SmackDown, it appears that in Sami Zayn’s absence, both Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro have seemingly joined forces with King Corbin. The 2019 King of the Ring winner will be part of the Money in the Bank contract ladder match this weekend, but it appears that even though the rules of the match would allow outside interference, he won’t be relying on them.
Cesaro recently announced on his Twitch account that he won’t be working this weekend’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view, which means that he won’t be in Corbin’s corner. It will be interesting to see if Cesaro is part of this week’s episode of SmackDown alongside The Lone Wolf, or if the company decides to keep Nakamura and Cesaro off WWE TV until the Intercontinental Champion is able to return.
