- There is a lot of heat on Edge within WWE right now. WWE pretty much made another Legends deal offer to him when he worked the recent SmackDown tapings but he was not interested. Edge does not want to be locked into a WWE deal and wants to be able to do his own things. When WWE originally saw that Edge's contract was ending, they offered him a Legends deal similar to what Shawn Michaels has but word is the money offered was a bit of an insult.
There is also some heat on Edge because of Beth Phoenix leaving. There's a belief that she's leaving in part to help him recover from neck surgery in November. Also, there are some people high up in the company that aren't happy about his upcoming appearance for Tommy Dreamer's House of Hardcore promotion.
Edge and WWE will most likely work together in the future but there is definitely the feeling within WWE that he's sort of gone against them.

I think the problem is Edge is trying to have his cake and it too.
The WWE want him to work for them, so they push an offer at him, he rejects but he still does the odd appearance so they get pissed when he does stuff outside WWE. Because it's like he's working for them but getting a bit on the side as well.
Edge however doesn't seem interested in a contract, he wants to do his own stuff but he's happy to do the odd appearance for WWE especially seeing how they're pushing him to work for them.
I think all this can be sorted if Edge just respectfully says that he wants to do his own thing right now. Then he does it, and I mean with out working for WWE too, just stop appearing for them altogether (maybe pay his friends a visit occasionally, maybe appear in big events but doesn't occasionally appear like he does now). So he focuses soley on his own things that are outside WWE and doesn't work with WWE at all. Then once he's done with the other stuff and feels like working for WWE again, then he focus on WWE again.
So basically he just needs to say to Vince "look I love WWE but I want to do my own thing for awhile, so I can't work for you for a while but once I've done my own thing maybe a year or two from now then I can work for WWE solely."

I don't see what the problem is. When they need him, they call, and if everything works out he's on the show. He's a part time talk show host for the WWE. Not exactly someone that needs to be locked down to a contract.
Plus remember Edge was a maineventer, he has a huge fan following. If he signs a contract they own him, they can sell his merchandise and basically make money off his name. They get him on contract he's their property and their property alone, which means only they make money off his name.

WWE are having a cry over nothing if there is heat then don't use him use Foley or Rock or hell use Austin for special guest appearances, Rock can still be there via satellite.
