• Edge Reveals His Possible Retirement Date After Last Night’s RAW
Last night in the main event of RAW, WWE Hall Of Famer Edge wrestled his 1st match in his hometown of Toronto in over a decade.
He defeated Damian Priest of The Judgment Day stable.
Edge recently noted in an interview that his career will come to an end soon and he can see it.
After last night’s RAW went off the air, Edge teased that he might retire in August 2023, in his hometown of Toronto in front of the Canadian fans.
Below is what the Rated R-Superstar said:
“30 years ago, July 1st, 1992, I had my first wrestling match as Adam Copeland. I knew one day, I’d be standing right here in front of you, I just knew it.
What I didn’t dream of is that I would have to retire for 9 years and fight, fight with every fiber of my being to get this back. All of you are the reason for that. This is a reciprocal relationship.
I just went toe-to-toe with one of the best talents and the future of this industry in Damian Priest. I can’t wait to do it some more. I can’t wait to hopefully come back one last time, one last time here in Toronto.
I’m looking at the calendar, we usually come here in August. So next August, I plan on seeing each and every one of you, and in a perfect world, we’ll all say goodbye to each other that night.
Hey, that’s okay, man. This is the place for me to do it. I mean this when I say it — I love all of you. In case you missed it, I love being Canadian.”
