Heading into this week, reports were still stating that Edge would be facing Randy Orton at WrestleMania 37 once he returns from his torn tricep injury, concluding the trilogy of matches with "The Viper" that started back at WrestleMania 36. However, @WrestleVotes appeared on Twitter on Monday with a new report stating WWE is mulling over a new potential WrestleMania opponent for Edge — "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt.
The two haven't crossed paths so far given that Edge has only worked with Orton since he returned from retirement. But given the dedication Edge puts towards each of his promos and the layers of storytelling Wyatt brings with The Fiend, it could make for an interesting match.
WrestleMania update: Source states that while Edge vs Randy Orton has been the long standing plan, and still is at the moment, the idea of Edge vs The Fiend has been discussed a great deal for the show.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) November 16, 2020
It would also make for some interesting television over the next few months. If Drew McIntyre winds up challenging Roman Reigns as last week's SmackDown hinted at, it could mean either Wyatt or Edge wind up winning the Royal Rumble next January while the other takes the title away from Orton.
