Professional wrestlers spend their entire careers defying the odds and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Be that physically with the moves they perform or the abuse that they put their bodies through day in and day out. So after more than 25 years in the ring, it’s no surprise that one WWE star feels that the end of their career is in sight.
On April 11th 2011, Edge took to the ring on Monday Night Raw to reveal the toll that his glittering career had taken. As someone with a history of serious neck issues, doctors had advised the star that he should never wrestle again. However, at the 2020 Royal Rumble the WWE Hall of Famer defied the odds one more time to resume his career. While far from on a full-time schedule, the star has spent the following two years living out his dream as a professional wrestler.
Edge Admits WWE Career Is Nearly Over
During an appearance on Leafs Morning Take where he discussed his love of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Edge also reiterated previous hints that he knows his in-ring career is coming to an end.
“I think we all understand that it’s a pretty limited window. It’s closing, more and more every second,”
The comments come after Edge cut an emotional promo the last time WWE was in Toronto in August. After defeating Damian Priest in the main event of Monday Night Raw, Edge said that he “hopes to say goodbye” when WWE returns to Toronto. The former World Champion hasn’t wrestled since being defeated by Finn Balor in an “I Quit” Match at Clash At The Castle in September. The end of the match came after Rhea Ripley threatened to deliver a Con-Chair-To to Edge’s wife Beth Phoenix. This caused the star to say that he quit, although Ripley attacked Phoenix anyway.
At time of writing there’s no word on when or where the star will be retuning to the ring.
