Edge Says He Wants to Retire Before He Starts Embarrassing Himself

WWE Hall of Famer Edge made his in-ring return at Royal Rumble 2021 and outlasted 29 men to win the battle royal. He is yet to chose his opponent for WrestleMania 37 but rumors have it he’ll eventually challenge Roman Reigns.

While responding to a question from Matty Paddock during a global teleconference, Edge talked about the future of his in-ring career.

“You know, that’s the hard part. That’s the hard part to say. What I will say is I’ll be gone before a young talent looks at the sheet and goes, ‘This is going to be difficult’. I don’t want to be that guy. I want to be the guy that a young talent looks and goes, ‘Oh, man… I get to get in there with him and feel what this is like.’”

He also said that he will retire from WWE before he starts embarrassing himself.

“I don’t want to overstay my welcome and I want this run to help. I don’t want it to hinder. I don’t want to take away from the business, the industry, from a talent… I want to add. While I can do that, that’s what I want to do. I have to be honest with myself, and I know that, but I also have my inner circle. My inner circle is brutally honest with me. I’ve had the discussion with Beth (Phoenix), she’s gonna tell me, ‘It’s time. You’re embarrassing yourself now.’ And I don’t want to get there. So, it’ll be before that, but I don’t know what that is.”
