Edge is out of action with a triceps injury that he did not factor into his return plans at all. He is at home and recovering with full intentions of getting back in the ring.
The Rated R Superstar’s story with Randy Orton is far from over. This angle could also see Edge in a WWE World Title picture eventually as well.
Comic Book recently spoke to Edge about his injury. His doctor told him that there is a chance that he entered the Greatest Wrestling Match Ever with a triceps tear that only got worse as the match progressed. Then he finally did enough damage to warrant surgery.
“I don’t know, it was a month yesterday. 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 and Randy Orton’s “Greatest Wrestling Match Ever” might not have hit the mark depending on who you ask, but they certainly gave it their all in the ring. An injury at 46-years-old will heal a bit differently than during his first run when he was younger, but he has every intention to focus on his recovery.
