Edge was injured during the taping of the Greatest Wrestling Match Ever at Backlash. Now fans are anxiously awaiting his return.
The WWE Hall Of Famer signed a great deal with WWE. He wouldn’t have been back full time by a long-shot, but now he’s forced to take a break.
While speaking to Comic Book, Edge revealed that he’s not certain when he will be able to return. His body might heal differently in his 40’s which is a new recovery experience for him. He is taking things as they go because he knows that rushing back to the ring is never a great idea.
“It’s so hard to tell in that initial kind of two months where it’s at and where everything is. I’ve always been happy with the fact that I rebound from injuries pretty quickly. I got back from a torn Achilles in six months which is kind of stupid. But you know I’m also older now so I don’t know what that means. I’ve never had a surgery in my 40s so I don’t know how quick I recover anymore, I guess is what I’m saying. So I don’t know. I honestly don’t know.”
“One thing I have learned is rather than rushing back I need to listen to my body and I need to listen to my body more I think. Even with the Backlash match, my arm was sore going into it but I didn’t realize, I didn’t think anything was going on, it was just a little sore. Okay, well that makes sense. When I got the surgery the doctor said there was a pretty good chance it was partially torn going into the match. I didn’t know that, I just thought my elbow is a little sore. But when you’re a wrestler, stuff gets sore, that’s what happens.”
“So I just need to listen more I guess. Back to the point of how long? I don’t know I’m just going to listen to my body and truly listen to my body, make sure I have self care, which I never really paid attention to before. Whether that entails yoga, cold plunges, saunas, whatever that is, I just need to do more of it, especially being 46 now.”
Edge is very good at keeping a secret. He was denying his WWE return the week before he made his return. Even if he knew the exact date that he will be back in the ring he’s not sharing that information.
We’ll have to see what’s next for the Rated R Superstar. He might even find himself in the WWE World Title picture upon his return. Things certainly seem to be shaping up where they could go that direction.
