– Take it for what it’s worth, but Edge isn’t booked at this point for the post-WrestleMania tour of Europe. It could be that WWE is switching him in the Draft and don’t want to false advertise him for the SmackDown tour or they’re trying to keep the Draft change a secret by not advertising him for the RAW shows. However, every other major Superstar is being advertised for the shows so it could be a sign of Edge taking some time off.
