A few years ago Edge shocked the world when he came out of retirement and returned to the ring at the Royal Rumble. The former WWE Champion has since gone on to add another chapter to his career by feuding with some interesting names and main eventing WrestleMania.
Even though Edge is back in action it doesn’t sound like he has plans to keep going much longer as retirement is on his mind. The Hall of Famer recently spoke to The Nation Network about plans for his retirement, and he noted that he wants to retire in Toronto.
“That’s the key. The first time I was told, ‘You gotta hang it up. That’s it, you’re done.’ It was WrestleMania. I retired world champ, and that sounds Cinderella, but I just didn’t know. That made it hard to chew on all those years, but I had to accept it and move on with what life is now. [I got to] start an amazing, beautiful family and the acting thing started to kind of take [off] a little but when I had the chance to get this back. The first thing I thought is, ‘I want to retire in Toronto.’”
“Because again, I know the window is not open for long. But if I can do it there, I think then I’ll be able to go right. I’m good. That was the last thing to kind of check off. I didn’t come back to win 4 more championships or anything like that. I really just came back to have fun, try and help teach a new generation of talent that I never got my hands on before. I always say, I call us storytellers. [I always intended to] come back and tell hell of a story for three or four years and then ride off into the sunset.”
Stay tuned for more updates on Edge’s retirement as they become available.
