The injury occurred during his match against Randy Orton that was taped last Sunday from Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center. WWE had been hyping it up as the Greatest Wrestling Match Ever even before it actually took place. 

As of this writing, WWE nor Edge has confirmed the injury. There’s also no word yet on how this affects his status with WWE or how it played out for the match. Clearly, he’ll be sidelined with the injury. 

Leading into this match, there was no report as to what was next for Edge regarding an opponent and date for the match. 

As noted, WWE taped this match in advance to make sure it was the best match possible due to the tagline to go along with it.
