Last night at the Royal Rumble, Edge made his return to full time competition and won the Royal Rumble match thus earning him a main event title shot at WrestleMania 26. The fans loved it when they heard the theme of Edge because they knew that a star talent was back to entertain all of the fans. Edge has done so many great things in his career folks; 12 time tag team champion, 5 time IC champion, 8 time world champion, 2001 King of the Ring winner, and finally the 2010 Royal Rumble winner. This man has done it all in his 14 year career but the question has to be ask folks, did the WWE make a mistake by choosing Edge to win the Royal Rumble match this year?

Edge tore his achilles tendon on July 9th 2009 at a live event agianst Jeff Hardy, people knew the severaty of the injury and was beginning to wonder, is this the end of Edge's in ring career? Edge vowed he would return and he went through a very tough training and rehab in order to make his comeback to WWE. Fans want Edge to be back because he is a fresh face plus he always seems to have great matches every time he is in the ring. As great as Edge is in the ring, he is still an established star thus creating the talks agian that WWE is not creating any new stars.

The Royal Rumble match itself went down to three men who had already been in WrestleMania main event's; Edge, John Cena, and Batista. People were into the match which is a plus but folks, I didn't see a new star making a huge impact in the match. Where were the men that fans really wanna see become big stars at? John Morrison, Miz, Kingston, Swagger, and others were already eliminated by established stars like HBK, Triple H, Batista, and John Cena. This is not a good move for the future of wrestling because eventually these men will retire and then who will be the new stars?

I am hoping for goddness sakes that the WWE does build up some younger talent towards WrestleMania because if we get the same names headlining the event, then you may see a lot of the loyal die hard WWE fans change their taste towards the upstart young company known as TNA.
