WWE SmackDown preview (Aug. 18, 2023): This could be the end of Edge
WWE invades the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, ON, Canada for tonight’s episode of SmackDown. Here is what’s on tap for the show:
– The fallout from last week’s show.
– Edge 25 years celebration.
– Edge vs. Sheamus.
WWE SmackDown is live tonight from the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and to celebrate his homecoming and 25 years with WWE, Toronto’s own Edge laid down a challenge to Sheamus, a friend who he has never locked up with. Rumors immediately started swirling, and Edge later confirmed that this is the final match in his current contract. Edge added fuel to the fire by telling ET Canada, “I don’t know. I honestly don’t know … I’m going to be 50 in October. It’s not easy anymore. Before, what I used to take for granted to be able to do, now, there is a process and a fallout. There’s a lot. It’s the dream gig, but it’s getting really hard.”
On this day… we celebrate The Rated-R Superstar!
This week in Toronto, Edge will face Sheamus on The Rated R-Superstar’s 25th Anniversary Special.
Despite both having long tenures in WWE, Edge and The Celtic Warrior have never faced each other one-on-one.
Before Edge first retired in 2011, the two collided a few times in Fatal 4-Way and Multi-Man Tag Team Matches, as well teaming together to face John Cena and Randy Orton, but they’ve never had a singles contest.
All that changes next week when the two WWE Legends stand toe-to-toe. On the Aug. 11 episode of SmackDown, Edge stated his desire to face The Celtic Warrior, thanking Sheamus for being a catalyst leading to Edge’s return to the ring.
Can Edge turn Fight Night into a Rated-R victory?

We will have live coverage of SmackDown later on tonight.
