A few weeks ago, Randy Orton punished Edge with a steel chair and left fans in shock. Now, it is expected that Randy Orton and Edge will once again face each other in the WWE ring. Many fans believe that this will be Edge’s last storyline before exiting from WWE.

Last week, Randy Orton appeared on WWE RAW and failed to explain why he attacked the Rated R Superstar. Few fans believe that Randy Orton is taking revenge from Edge for defeating him at WWE Vengeance 2004. In that PPV, Edge defeated Randy Orton and became the new Intercontinental Champion. This was also the first time Randy Orton had lost a championship match.
