Men's Royal Rumble winner Edge is set to appear on SmackDown this Friday night.

A commercial that aired during tonight's Raw questioned who Edge and women's Royal Rumble winner Bianca Belair will set their sights on as the road to WrestleMania 37 continues on Friday's SmackDown. The WWE on Fox Twitter account also wrote: "2021 Men's Royal Rumble winner @EdgeRatedR returns to the brand he ruled for many years! #SmackDown, Friday 8e/7c on FOX"

Since returning last year, Edge's appearances on WWE television have been on Raw. He appeared on tonight's post-Royal Rumble edition of Raw and interrupted WWE Champion Drew McIntyre in the opening segment, which featured Sheamus dropping McIntyre with a Brogue Kick. Edge was also in action in the main event of tonight's Raw and defeated Randy Orton after Orton was distracted by Alexa Bliss.

Sunday's Royal Rumble was the first time Edge has wrestled since tearing his triceps last June.

Dave Meltzer reported today that Edge vs. Universal Champion Roman Reigns is planned to take place at WrestleMania 37. Reigns is a member of the SmackDown roster and retained his Universal Championship against Kevin Owens in a Last Man Standing match at the Royal Rumble.

Belair is also a member of the SmackDown roster. Meltzer noted that which title she'll be challenging for at WrestleMania "isn't 100 percent right now." SmackDown Women's Champion Sasha Banks retained her title against Carmella at the Royal Rumble. Asuka is the current Raw Women's Champion.

WrestleMania 37 is a two-night event taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11.
