Edge Explains His Retirement Plans

Edge Explains His Retirement Plans WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Edge made an iconic return during the 2020 Royal Rumble match.

Edge had retired nine years prior due to neck injuries, but returned for his second run during the match.

With that moment now three years old, fans have wondered how much longer this run will last.

Edge teased to the Toronto crowd earlier this year that he would retire there next year, which only ramped up the speculation of Edge’s retirement.

Speaking to The Nation Network, Edge was asked about why he made the announcement to the Toronto crowd, and his goals in his career.

He said:

“That’s the key. The first time I was told, ‘You gotta hang it up. That’s it, you’re done.’ It was WrestleMania. I retired world champ, and that sounds Cinderella, but I just didn’t know. That made it hard to chew on all those years, but I had to accept it and move on with what life is now.

“[I got to] start an amazing, beautiful family and the acting thing started to kind of take [off] a little but when I had the chance to get this back. The first thing I thought is, ‘I want to retire in Toronto,’ because again, I know the window is not open for long.

“But if I can do it there, I think then I’ll be able to go right. I’m good. That was the last thing to kind of check off. I didn’t come back to win 4 more championships or anything like that. I really just came back to have fun, try and help teach a new generation of talent that I never got my hands on before. I always say, I call us storytellers.

“[I always intended to] come back and tell hell of a story for three or four years and then ride off into the sunset.”

Edge’s last match took place back at Extreme Rules, where he lost an I Quit match to Finn Balor.

Edge was recently announced for the upcoming Percy Jackson and the Olympians Disney Plus series.

Saraya, the former Paige, who also retired due to neck injuries, is set to make her in-ring return at AEW Full Gear tomorrow night (November 19).
