WWE Hall of Fame inductee and former World Heavyweight Champion, Edge is mindful of the ways in which fans bought-in and appreciated his work ever since his return to WWE at the 2020 Royal Rumble.
The Rated R Superstar is aware that he isn’t the young man he once was ever since returning from a once thought to be career ending injury. Speaking recently on the Leafs Morning Take, Edge would bring up the “limited window” that he has inside the ring and how that affects fan’s attachment to him.
“I think it’s just because as the older I’ve gotten — and also the story. People know the story, right? I’m not supposed to be doing this, yet here I am nine years after being retired, doing it again.”
“And I think we all understand it’s a pretty limited window you know. It’s closing, more and more every second. [laughs] Like, I woke up this morning, I was like, ‘I didn’t do anything! All I did was work out, and I really hurt today!’ So I think that’s probably why.”Edge
Edge made his return to WWE at the 2020 Royal Rumble in the 21 spot, he was most recently defeated by Finn Balor in an “I Quit” match at WWE’s Extreme Rules PLE.
