The Rated-R Superstar is coming home.
Edge is returning to host a special edition of his talk show "The Cutting Edge" next Tuesday as part of SmackDown's historic 1000th episode.
The WWE Hall of Famer was responsible for many of the blue brand's greatest moments, whether it was stepping up as one of the SmackDown's premiere Superstars after the initial brand split in 2002, his unforgettable Money in the Bank cash-in on The Undertaker or running roughshod over SmackDown with General Manager Vickie Guerrero in his corner.
