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 and fans were truly happy to see him back. While Edge remains absent from WWE television, it appears Edge stated that he has about one year left in him to compete at an elite level.
It has been three years since he came back to professional wrestling. In that span of time, Edge has been involved in numerous feuds and excellent matches with the likes of Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and more.
Edge most recently squared off against Finn Balor in a Hell In A Cell match at WrestleMania 39. The Rated R Superstar was victorious in the match and has been absent from WWE television since then.
While speaking to Logan Paul on the Impaulsive podcast, Edge talked bout his pro wrestling career so far, especially his current run. Being 49 already, Edge already knows his career is coming to an end. Edge stated that he believes he has about one year left in him to compete at an elite level.
“I don’t want to stick around to the point where it’s like, ‘Oh, there he is. Okay.’ I don’t want to get there. When I come out now, I feel the explosion. I feel all of that to throw at them. That’s still there. I don’t know if that, for me, will ever go away. I feel like, in this last run, the Rocky Balboa movie, which I watched two nights before my comeback. I was in tears. (Sylvester) Stallone’s monologues in it, were all things that were going through my mind. I realized, ‘I gotta get this out of the basement,’ because I didn’t have the chance to end it the way I wanted it to. This time, I’m going to get to do that.
Now, I have two little girls that I have to spend the rest of my life taking care of. I have a wish list of things that are still to do, but it’s not long, and neither is the time. At most, I might have another year in me, to be able to do it at this level and still be able to do it at an elite level where I can still hang, where I have to get in with Austin Theory, who is 25 and wasn’t born when I had my first match in WWE.
Edge was present at Game 4 of the Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Tampa Bay Lightning game, reuniting with Christian. We will have to wait and see when The Rated R Superstar will return to WWE television and eventually retire.
