So many fans want legends from the past to return and get one more chance in a WWE ring, but that isn't always going to be able to happen. Brock Lesnar just entered the Royal Rumble match this past week, which has led to tons of speculation about his WrestleMania 36 opponent for this year. Rumors have been flying around that a former world champion would return to face him, but it appears as if the matchup fans want may not happen.
On this week's Monday Night Raw, Lesnar shocked everyone by entering the Royal Rumble match and taking the number one spot. Since he is entering as WWE Champion, there are many possibilities on who his WrestleMania 36 opponent will be. Rumors began circulating on just who will enter the ring with the new champion.
For months, there have been rumors that Adam "Edge" Copeland would be getting back in the ring. He had to medically retire years ago and it was pretty much guaranteed that he could never safely wrestle again.
He has continuously shot down rumors that he was coming back to WWE to wrestle or participate in-ring. Although he has spoken out about being healthy enough to get back in the action, it most likely won't be the case that fans will see him back in the ring.
As for the speculation that Edge will face Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36, those rumors are almost guaranteed to be false.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, by way of Wrestling Inc., Edge vs. Brock Lesnar is not one of the matches on the WrestleMania 36 card. Dave Meltzer reported that there are no plans at all for Edge to appear at this year's event -- though that could change.
Although it doesn't seem likely that Edge will have a match, he could appear in a segment or promo. At last year's SummerSlam, Edge did appear in the ring to defend Canada's honor against Elias, even delivering one of his signature spear moves against the other star.
Edge has been seen at a number of recent WWE TV tapings recently. While it is certainly possible that he could just be visiting with friends, he could also possibly be coming back to the company for a job outside of the ring. However, nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
It's been a roller coaster of emotions for wrestling fans since Edge officially retired from WWE and in-ring competition. His career was cut short by injuries, though there has always been hope that he'd be able to come back one day. Unfortunately, the rumors of his return don't appear to be true, as it seems like Lesnar will face a different opponent at WrestleMania 36.
