2021 Royal Rumble winner Edge will be appearing on NXT tonight.
Winning the Royal Rumble gives ‘The Rated R Superstar’ the opportunity to face a champion of his choosing at WrestleMania, which includes the NXT Championship currently held by Finn Balor.
In a tweet from Edge he mentions visiting his wife Beth Phoenix in Orlando and then mentions an appearance on the black-and-gold brand. Phoenix is currently a member of the commentary team on NXT.
This tweet was then followed up by official confirmation that Edge will be appearing.
Edge has never appeared on NXT before so this will be his debut. It is unconfirmed yet if ‘The Rated R Superstar’ is appearing to confront NXT Champion Finn Balor or for another reason.
Edge mentioned on Monday Night Raw that he has not yet made his decision for who he wants to face at ‘Mania but we will know as soon as he does.
If Edge was to challenge for the NXT Championship it would not be the first time a Royal Rumble winner has challenged for an NXT Championship, as last year’s winner Charlotte Flair challenged then NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley for her championship on night two of last year’s WrestleMania.
