5 Opponents We Want To See Edge Wrestle If He Returns (& 5 We Don't)

Rumors are circulating that WWE Hall of Famer Edge will come out of retirement to wrestle again. The Rated-R Superstar denied that he was coming back, but it hasn't stopped fans from dreaming of a potential return to the ring.

If Edge does end up wrestling again, there are a handful of superstars that would certainly put on quite the show against The Ultimate Opportunist. Here are five wrestlers that would be top quality opponents for Edge, and five possible matches that WWE should stay away from.

10 10.Want To See: Daniel Bryan

Daniel Bryan and Edge only faced off once, and that was on the Sept. 20, 2010 episode of Raw - where the former won via disqualification. Sadly, Edge's early retirement prevented a possible long-term feud with Bryan.

We have no doubt that an encore between Bryan and Edge would fly through the roof. They're both technically sound performers who display phenomenal pace as well. And just imagine the promos that these two would piece together as microphone gurus?

Sign us up for this. We're all for it.

9 Don't Want To See: Randy Orton

This is nothing against the Viper at all. He's still as decorated in the ring as ever, and Orton remains one of the WWE's few top-tier heels.

It's just, we've already seen Edge vs. Orton so many times throughout the years. Another chapter between the two all-time greats isn't legendary. They clashed numerous on numerous occasions when Orton was a member of Evolution.

The two even worked together as the Rated-RKO tag team. And finally, they rekindled their rivalry in 2010 after Edge had turned babyface. There's more than enough history between these two, and another match just isn't necessary.

8 Want To See: Triple H

If Edge is only going to come back for one match, there's a good chance that he'll be pitted against a fellow legend. Well, Triple H would certainly provide a formidable opponent for the Rated-R Superstar.

Triple H has put on a handful of quality matches against other part-time legends in the past like Sting, The Undertaker and Batista. The Game shined in putting away "The Animal" for good at WrestleMania 35. Why not have him take part in another retirement match, this time featuring Edge - whom Triple H clashed with on numerous occasions during the Ruthless Aggression Era?

7 Don't Want To See: John Cena

Similar to what was said about Orton, the fact is that we've seen Edge vs. John Cena plenty of times already. They feuded for the vast majority of 2006, after Edge defeated him at the New Year's Revolution pay-per-view to win the WWE Championship.

Their rivalry continued on through large portions of 2007, 2008 and 2009 as well. And although it was one of the best feuds of the Ruthless Aggression Era, there's no reason to rekindle this now.

Cena only wrestles a handful of matches a year now, too. There's good reason to believe that this wouldn't be the best match in terms of pace and execution.

6 Want To See: Kevin Owens

If you look closely, you'll see that Kevin Owens carries many of the same qualities that Edge presented during his Hall of Fame career. The two Canadians excelled as brash talkers on the microphone, and they displayed ruthless personalities that made them two of WWE's top heels during the 21st centuries.

Owens and Edge would put together some A-grade promos together, and there's little doubting that their match would be absolutely superb from start to finish. It also helps that Owens is in the midst of a major babyface run. Could Edge come out of retirement and help put the Prizefighter over even more? That's something the WWE Universe would certainly love to see.

5 Don't Want To See: Goldberg

WWE pitted Goldberg against The Undertaker at the Super ShowDown event, but the match didn't go as planned. Both superstars botched a handful of moves throughout, and Goldberg was left legitimately concussed during the match.

It made more sense when WWE pitted Goldberg against Dolph Ziggler at SummerSlam, where the Hall of Famer was able to squash "The Show-off." Those are the types of matches that Goldberg should be taking part in.

An Edge vs. Goldberg match just doesn't make sense on a lot of levels here. It's best if WWE stays away and lets Goldberg do his work with full-time superstars - while Edge gets the chance to face more legitimate in-ring performers.

4 Want To See: Roman Reigns

A "Spear" showdown!

Roman Reigns has defeated his fair share of WWE legends, including The Undertaker, Triple H and John Cena. But without a doubt, Edge would be able to offer a better quality match with The Big Dog.

I don't just say this because Reigns uses the same finisher as Edge. But the two superstars really display similar styles and skillsets in the ring. They would surely piece together an incredible match together. And hey, it would help Reigns get over more if he were able to defeat another all-time great like Edge.

3 Don't Want To See: Braun Strowman

The Monster Among Men has been at his best when pitted against other "big men" like Kane and Big Show. Now, he has his eyes set on boxer Tyson Fury, who will provide Strowman his greatest challenge yet.

It makes sense if WWE focuses on finding more "big men" like Fury to face Strowman. I'm just not seeing how a feud with Edge makes sense here, especially given their completely different styles of wrestling.

2 Want To See: Seth Rollins

Edge vs. Seth Rollins can easily be regarded as one of the greatest dream matches that we never got to see. The Architect didn't make his main roster debut until Survivor Series 2012 - more than a year after Edge had retired from in-ring competition.

Well, Rollins currently stands as both the Universal Champion and the main face of WWE. How can they build him up even more? By pitting Rollins against some other WWE legends, which would build up his main event status even more.

In Rollins, you're getting one of the most decorated in-ring performers to come around in years. And like Edge, Rollins displays some of the best microphone work in the WWE. This match has WrestleMania main event written all over it, no?

1 Don't Want To See: Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar is among the highest paid WWE superstars every year, and he's been given more than enough championship reigns. Many fans have grown tired of WWE giving Lesnar all the perks, since he's not a full-time wrestler.

If WWE is going to give Lesnar all of this money and creative control to go with his championship reigns, then they shouldn't be giving him the opportunity to face Edge again. WWE needs to give this to a full-time performer who's earned a shot with the Rated-R Superstar.

And do you really feel like seeing Lesnar defeat Edge in a matter of minutes? We certainly don't. Let's hope WWE stays away from this one.
