Edge is set to throw down with Sheamus on SmackDown this week, and that will be a big match for him. He has never faced his good friend Sheamus in the ring yet, and that is going to change. That being said, there are also rumors that Edge might be done after this week.

The 49-year-old WWE Hall of Famer is enjoying a run that nobody thought was possible. He spent nearly a decade out of the ring, thinking that he could never wrestle again. This run in WWE was very different for Edge, and he wants to retire on his own terms.

As we previously reported, Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio that Edge may retire after his match on SmackDown this Friday. It was stated that it was Edge’s goal to retire in Toronto, and this Friday’s show might be his last chance for a while.

“I think the idea was that Edge thought that maybe SummerSlam was gonna be in Toronto and was hoping for that, and then that would be where he would retire. Because he wants to retire in Toronto, and this is the year he was talking about retiring, for real, the second retirement.“


This is the last Toronto show for a while, I mean, there’ll be another one. So I don’t know if this is the retirement, they’re not billing it as such, but his trainer said that it’s probably his last match.”

Ringside News reached out to inquire about Edge’s current situation. After all, it might make some sense if he faced Sheamus in his final match. After all, it was Sheamus who convinced Edge that he could take bumps again in the first place.

We were told by a tenured member of the WWE creative team that there are no plans for Edge to retire after Friday’s SmackDown. That being said, his match in Toronto against Sheamus will not be his last.

Edge hasn’t been around since he beat Grayson Waller in the main event of SmackDown’s Madison Square Garden SmackDown on July 7th. He might not be a full-time performer anymore, but Edge is not finished with his WWE run at all.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
