With self-directed retirement spectacles becoming more popular, could Edge be headed for a retirement run outside of WWE?
Perhaps says Matt Hardy, discussing how he could possibly see retirement going down for the Rated R superstar.
While saying that he didn’t think Edge would pull a Ric Flair in the sense that if he says something is his last match, it will indeed be the last, Hardy speculated that there could be some post-WWE matches left in Edge’s tank.
On his ‘Extreme Life of Matt Hardy‘ podcast, Matt Hardy said:
“I think he’s had a good last run. I’m glad he did get to come back and he was able to recover from that very serious injury, which he had to leave for many, many years. He’s been in great shape. He looked good. I thought he really produced some quality content.
“I liked the process of how he’s been helping younger stars. I feel like he’s kind of in the role where I’m at to where it kind of helps build the next generation as well in some ways.
“Yeah, I think it would be very feasible for him to actually have his final match outside WWE. I think that’s something that is possible. It may not. I mean, he may just finish there.
“I could see him being a guy that was committed. If he says like, it is his last match, I don’t think he’s gonna do like Ric Flair and have like, five or six last matches.
“I could see him finishing up with WWE and having his final few matches somewhere else.”
To confirm, Matt Hardy is NOT saying that Edge has a definite plan to finish up with WWE and then have a ‘final few matches somewhere else’ as in teaming with Christian to take on the Hardy Boyz one more time… but that would be amazing, wouldn’t it?
Matt Hardy is set for his own amazing future set of stories to be told in AEW as brother Jeff Hardy has recently reunited with him, including a big cinematic match from the Hardy Compound on AEW Rampage.
Matt and Jeff Hardy are set to team with HOOK to take on the team of Ethan Page and The Gunns by which if Team Delete wins, Matt Hardy gains control of Ethan Page’s AEW contract.
