Off-Air Rumble Notes: Reaction to Edge, Guests Kept Out

Nick Paglino

Thanks to Van Byous for sending this in: A couple of tidbits I’d like to share with you guys from the Rumble last night. After the cameras turned off, Edge walked behind the screens, and then turned around and came back out to the ring and played with the crowd for about 5 minutes. He went side to side getting everyone to cheer and finally made his way back up the ramp and the announcer thanked us and told us they would see Atlanta again very soon. It was announced today on WWE.com that WrestleMania 27 will be held in Atlanta at the Georgia Dome.

It’s also being reported that guests who were invited to the Royal Rumble PPV were told they could not come backstage, as WWE was doing their best to keep Edge’s return in the main event a secret. Former WZ correspondent Bill Behrens, for example, noted that he was invited to the show, but was then denied entry into the backstage area.
