Edge is back from injury and looking to win a major championship at WrestleMania after winning the 2021 Royal Rumble event. He’s not looking to slow down just yet, but there will come a time when he does walk away for good.
The Rated R Superstar will hopefully get to end things on his own terms next time. When speaking on a recent media teleconference, Edge addressed the idea of retiring for good, and that is a very hard question for him to address at this time.
“You know, that’s the hard part. That’s the hard part to say. What I will say is I’ll be gone before a young talent looks at the sheet and goes, ‘This is going to be difficult’. I don’t want to be that guy. I want to be the guy that a young talent looks and goes, ‘Oh, man… I get to get in there with him and feel what this is like.'”
“I don’t want to overstay my welcome and I want this run to help. I don’t want it to hinder. I don’t want to take away from the business, the industry, from a talent… I want to add. While I can do that, that’s what I want to do. I have to be honest with myself, and I know that, but I also have my inner circle. My inner circle is brutally honest with me. I’ve had the discussion with Beth (Phoenix), she’s gonna tell me, ‘It’s time. You’re embarrassing yourself now.’ And I don’t want to get there. So, it’ll be before that, but I don’t know what that is.”
It might be hard for Edge overstay his welcome for some fans who are very excited that he is back on WWE television. As the 2021 Royal Rumble winner, Edge will likely be around a lot on the road to WrestleMania. His initial contract was to work a limited number of matches, but it seems that he might have found there is far more gas in the tank than he previously thought.
