So fans got excited when Fight Oracle reported that the Rated R superstar has been cleared to compete by WWE doctors and he is under contract with the company.
The former Champion however seemingly responded to these reports from his Twitter account and killed the rumors saying that he has not been cleared:
Edge wrestled his last televised match at WrestleMania XXVII where he defeated Alberto Del Rio and retained the World Heavyweight Championship. He announced his retirement from in-ring competition during the April 15 episode of SmackDown Live in 2011.
The rumors of his in-ring return first picked up pace when Edge made a surprise appearance during the SummerSlam pre-show earlier this year and got physical by delivering a spear to Elias.
He then announced his retirement from podcast and the reports of him signing a new deal with WWE only fuelled the speculation that the former SmackDown Star may be gearing up for a return.
Although WWE will not allow him to compete unless the Ultimate Opportunist is cleared for action by doctors so, after this tweet, it does not appear very likely that he will be returning to ring anytime soon.
