It seems that a WWE star may be thinking about retirement heading into his match on night two of WrestleMania 39 tonight.
One of the big matches tonight is a Hell in a Cell match between Edge and ‘The Demon’ Finn Balor.
This match was actually supposed to happen at Royal Rumble in January, but Edge’s acting schedule put paid to that at the time.
Speaking of Edge, he did an interview with the Toronto Sun ahead of Mania, during which the topic of retirement came up.
Edge’s WWE deal is up this year and he’s previously spoken about potentially wanting to retire in his hometown of Toronto.
Well WWE does head back to Toronto in August for an episode of SmackDown, and Edge was asked about possibly retiring there.
“This June will be 25 years since my television debut, so it feels like it would be kind of cool to do a nice little retirement tour almost.
“Not a greatest hits, because I want to go out and go. There is lots up in the air right now, honestly, and I think a lot of it will get answered in and around August and September.”
Regarding his final match, he said:
“I would like it to be in Toronto. I think that’s something I want to hold firm to. Would I prefer it to be a pay-per-view? Sure. Would I prefer it to be in a stadium? Sure.
“But to me, it’s more important for it to be in Toronto than let’s say that it has to be WrestleMania. Just because that’s where I started.
“So why not bring it full circle and be like ‘There, that’s the end of the story’.”
Obviously if Edge does retire there later this year, it would make tonight his last WrestleMania match.
We’ll keep you posted with any more pre-Mania news, as well as any updates on Edge’s career and retirement status throughout the year.
