The final premium live event before WrestleMania, Elimination Chamber, has come and gone. That means the buildup to WWE’s biggest show of the year will begin in earnest. And the card will be finalized before you know it. We already knew about three of the matches that would take place throughout the two-night event, and we now know about two more.
The Edge Open Challenge
Technically, one and a half. The Miz has revealed that he has enlisted the help of his celebrity pal Logan Paul to face Rey and Dominik Mysterio on The Grandest Stage Of Them All. This was a bit of a letdown for those who thought Miz’s mystery partner would be Cody Rhodes. There is still hope because there was a hint on Raw that if Rhodes shows up in time for WrestleMania, he will be in an even bigger match.
Edge issued an open challenge for WrestleMania on Raw, and while there was no response, there were plenty of hints as to who might step up. Edge made his WWE debut on Monday night for the first time since defeating Miz and Maryse alongside Beth Phoenix at the Royal Rumble. It’s not surprising that he skipped Elimination Chamber. Given how to open Edge has been about his dissatisfaction with the Saudi shows.
Undeniable, Phenomenal, Demon
Edge addressed the camera and used words like phenomenal and demon. Implying that the person to accept his challenge could be AJ Styles or Finn Balor. The mention of undeniable and smoke and mirrors, both very deliberate references to Rhodes, stood out above the others. If the former AEW star is returning to WWE. A WrestleMania match against The Rated R Superstar sounds like something that would have enticed him to sign.
The Rhodes saga has been fascinating thus far, and whether or not he re-signs with WWE. The company is having a good time with it. To the point where it appears he will almost certainly appear at some point; otherwise, there would not be so many overt references to him. Whether you like Rhodes or not, it will be a watershed moment if and when he appears.
