Edge and Christian’s podcast, E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness had several interesting stories on the latest episode after Edge made a surprise return to the ring and speared Elias in half on the SummerSlam Kickoff Show.
Edge retired from in-ring WWE competition nearly a decade ago, and his spear on Elias was the first one he has delivered in WWE since his retirement. Edge talked about the injury which forced him to retire, and how he has learned a lot more about the injury after his retirement.
Edge has appeared on TV shows, and said that he does his stunts all by himself. He said that he even dropped a spear or two, with one of them on the cement ground. Edge said that he would be ready for a WWE match if needed, but the medical team in WWE won’t allow him to do so.
“To be perfectly honest, I think I could do a match tomorrow. I might be blown up but I’d be okay. It’s just from what I know with the WWE medical staff, they won’t allow. It is what it is, right?”
With several legends returning from retirement in recent times, Edge could possibly return for a singles match quite soon. He could even team up with his wife Beth Phoenix to take on Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch, considering the fact that these two couples have had some beef on Twitter.
Edge also talked about how the Spear spot at SummerSlam took place. He said that it was a spur in the moment thing, and Elias had to quickly prepare a song for the segment.
“First of all, the reason I had a sh*t eating grin was literally about five minutes before I saw you I found out or was asked, ‘What do you think? Wanna do a promo?’ So it was probably fifteen minutes before you saw me go out there so yeah it was all that last minute. Like, I think poor Elias had to go write a song in fifteen minutes. So it tells you how much of a pro he is.”
It remains to be seen if the Rated R Superstar ever returns to the ring for a retirement match.
