WWE Hall of Famer Edge shocked the world after making his return to pro wrestling during the 2020 Royal Rumble. It was 9 years after he was forced into retirement due to a neck injury.

Edge and Christian were one of the greatest tag teams of all time in WWE, as they had legendary matches against The Hardys and the Dudleys. They defeated Matt and Jeff Hardy at WWE No Mercy 2000 to win the Tag Team Championships.

Back then, Edge and Christian went as Los Conquistadors and wore gold outfits, including masks, to protect their identities. While speaking on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, Matt Hardy recalled how Edge nearly suffocated during the match.

“They didn’t have enough masks when we got to the building,” Hardy said. “I wanna say there was one. They went out to a mall and bought some masks. I wanna say it was some famous Mexican masks or whatever. Adam’s mask, Edge’s mask, was actually spraypainted gold. He almost suffocated. He almost passed out because he was wearing a mask that had been spraypainted just a couple of hours earlier.”


Edge is currently away from WWE television and is likely to return by the end of this year. We will have to wait and see what WWE will have planned for him once he’s back.
