In an exciting turn of events on WWE Smackdown on Friday, former 11-time world champion Edge made his much-awaited return to the ring for the first time since WrestleMania. The 47-year-old was not messing around on his return as he completely destroyed Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his cousin Jimmy Uso with a surprise attack, much to the delight of all his fans.

One week after historic win against Rey Mysterio in SmackDown’s first-ever Hell in a Cell Match, Roman Reigns was just about to take over the mic after Paul Heyman was done with his praises for the wrestler. However, as soon as Reigns was about to speak, the famous entry music of Edge - Metalingus - played as Edge emerged out of nowhere sending Reigns in shock.

Edge destroys Reigns and Uso

The 47-year-old looked in absolutely destructive mood as he wasted no time to launch an attack on Roman Reigns. Edge announced his arrival with some lethal strikes on Reigns before banging his head on the table. While he also launched a brutal superman punch, he coupled it up with a ferocious spear.

While Edge made his brutal intentions very clear as he went out of the ring to get another chair, Reigns' cousin Jimmy Uso appeared out of nowhere to rescue his brother , but only to face the wrestler's wrath as Edge sent him straight through the barricade in no time. As Reigns left the ring somehow, Edge stood tall with anger raging in his eyes.
