Edge’s current run with WWE will be his last
WWE Hall of Famer Edge has confirmed that his current run with the company will be his final one. The wrestler, who returned to wrestling in 2018 after nearly nine years of retirement, has faced some of the biggest names in WWE, including headlining WrestleMania 37 in 2021. However, he has expressed his desire not to become a hindrance to younger talent and risk his legacy.
“I don’t want to be the guy who, when a young guy like Austin Theory looks at the lineup sheet, goes ‘I got Edge, alright, there’s going to be some work.’ I want Austin Theory to look at it and go ‘whoa okay cool I get to work Edge.’ Just like I did when I looked at the sheet and saw I’m working Mr. Perfect you know? That’s the feeling I want guys to still have. That’s what I want the audience to have. I don’t want to go past my sell-by date.”
“I still want to be able to be involved in a Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania if I’m around with a guy like Finn Balor who’s at the top of his game. I don’t want to stick around until that’s not the case. In a perfect world, I’d love to retire in Toronto. Do I know exactly when that is? No, I don’t. There are a lot of mitigating factors to that, but this is the last run, there’s no doubt about that.”
Edge is set to face Finn Balor inside Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania 39 in what will be his third Hell in a Cell match.
