While speaking to The New York Post, Edge shot down the idea of a possible in-ring return. Edge believes that it isn’t ideal for anyone over the age of 40 to have a full-time career because wrestling is very physical demanding on your body.
“Ah, no. [Laughs] Well, here’s the thing: People as much as they want it, it’s not going to be what they want. It’s very rare. Especially when you get performers into their 40s and 50s, it’s not an easy job. It’s a very, very difficult thing physically. I personally think your body isn’t meant to do it past 40 years old. It’s just a really, really physically demanding, taxing thing. And I know people hop in and they do one-offs here and there, but I just think it’s a matter of time before eventually, they are going to get hit with some kind of injury bullet, because it’s not normal to do to your body, especially once you start getting up in middle age.”
Edge would mention that he believes he could have an amazing match with AJ Styles or Seth Rollins but only if he is was 35 and not 45.
So, hey, do I know A.J. Styles and I could have an amazing match, Seth Rollins and I could tear it down and have a classic, yeah, if it were me at 35, not me at 45. And not me at 45 not having stepped in a ring for eight years.”
