The return of the “Rated R Superstar” Edge was one of the most shocking and exciting moments in recent WWE history.
Edge was forced to retire in 2011 due to neck injuries, but after multiple surgeries was able to make a return to the ring at the 2020 Royal Rumble.
Speaking with young Steven Spice of Steven’s Wrestling Adventure, Edge revealed that he doesn’t believe a full retirement is too far away.
“Won’t be ten (years), definitely won’t be ten. I doubt it’ll be five, it’s gonna be before that. I don’t even think it’s going to be three. I don’t know, but I don’t think it’s going to be that long. I know the window is small,”
Edge was absent from in-ring action for 9 years before making his unforgettable return in 2020, and he went on to comment on the entirely different-locker room he came back to.
“As I started feeling good and attacking life again, eight years later, nine years later, I started realizing that it was a possibility to come back and finally get that last three years and try and help young talent on the cusp, teach them a couple little things. To do it against a whole new era, to get in there with Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and these guys that don’t need my help but it’s exciting to get in there with them and try to hang with them in this stage of my life and career. I know it’s not going to last for long and I only have so much in the tank to be able to do that. I want to get out before you start going, ‘his tank is getting low.’ I want to get out while people still have fond memories,”Edge
Edge turned heel for the first time since his return in the build-up to his Wrestlemania 38 clash with AJ Styles, and on Night 2 would reign victorious following assistance from Damian Priest. The two would continue the attack on Styles on the Raw after Wrestlemania, confirming reports of a planned stable involving the pair.
