Edge returned from injury during the 2021 Royal Rumble match, but it was also a very special moment for Christian as well. Both Edge and Christian were both told at one point that they would never wrestle again. They changed that prognosis by making their ways back to the ring.
While speaking with Metro, Edge revealed how proud he was to see his old friend make his return during the Royal Rumble match. This was a huge moment for both of them as they got to share the ring once again, especially during such an important match.
“Here’s the beautiful part, here’s where wrestling can work at its purest, best level. When you have reality and truth, and real emotions that can’t be fabricated, that can’t be written, that can’t be scripted. So the look you saw on my face as Christian was coming down the ramp, that was real. That was me being part dumbfounded that we were both in the Royal Rumble in 2021 after being told we could both never do this again. Proud – there was pride because I know how hard he worked to get back to the point where he could be cleared – which was evident by looking at him. There’s so many emotions in that moment and in that look – because I’ve known he’s been cleared for a little while, right? So I knew all of these things, but then when it’s actually happening, you’re in the moment, you’re in the pocket, that’s when you get everything that you’ve been feeling for this last little while and it’s able to come out. ‘It just so happens to be able to come out on screen, and that’s a beautiful thing!”
Christian is cleared to compete, and he will wrestle again. We’ll have to see what kind of matches he is involved in, but this second chance to end things on his terms is one he certainly couldn’t pass up.
