During a recent appearance on ESPN’s The Drop, WWF Attitude Era Legend Edge spoke about his professional wrestling career and his current run in Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling.

Adam Copeland made it clear that he will continue to perform as an active wrestler depending on how he feels and how well he’s still able to deliver in the ring.

Here’s what The Rated-R Superstar had to say:

“Retirement was an option. There were three options. It was WWE, retirement, and once I was free of my contract, AEW was an option. I had those three, and I sat with it, I really did.

I had discussions with the family, with my friends, and it really was Lyric, my nine-year-old, put it to me plainly, ‘Are you still having fun?’ ‘Yeah.’ ‘Where are you going to have the most fun?’ ‘With Uncle Jay (Christian Cage).’ It seemed like a no-brainer, and then talking to Tony (Khan), and his excitement levels for it, that gets you excited.

We started going down the list and seeing all those potential matchups and the stories we could tell, it got very exciting. I’m also a realist in regard to, there’s only so long that can last.

I don’t want to be pulling anything down, I still want to be propping up; I don’t know how long that means, but I do know it gets tougher every year. I feel great and as long as I feel great and feel like I can maintain a certain level, that’s how long I’ll be around.”

Edge made his televised World Wrestling Federation debut in June 1998 and he stayed with the promotion until he was forced to retire in April 2011 due to a bone disease called ‘cervical spinal stenosis’.

However, the 2012 WWE Hall of Famer was cleared of the disease almost a decade later and made his triumphant return to WWE at the 2020 Royal Rumble and worked as a part-time WWE Superstar until his contract expired and he jumped ship to AEW.
