In his first interview as an official AEW Superstar, “Edge” Adam Copeland told CBS Sports that he was considered retirement a few months back, when he was still in WWE.

Below is what the Rated-R Superstar said:

“As I got closer to the end of the (WWE) deal, retirement was a very, very real option. It was not off the table. I really sat with the idea of retirement because I truly thought like, ‘Man, WWE gave me that night. I don’t know how that gets topped.’ And that’s still in my brain. But I guess now it’s like, ‘Okay, how can I try and top it in this new environment’.

Honestly, that Toronto show was a send-off of that character and it was the perfect way for that character to go out. Wrestling a guy that I’ve never wrestled that I always wanted to. It was just so much fun in there.

That night, I’ll never forget it. I’ll always have that night with me. I told Sheamus that too. That will be one of the most special nights in my career, always.”

Edge then revealed that his WWE contract actually expired on September 21st (not September 30th) and that’s when he signed with AEW.

Edge noted that he wanted to end his career with his best friend Christian Cage:

“It wasn’t until my contract was up on [September 21]. It wasn’t until then. So it was really, really quick to get everything done and get everything dialed in. Figuring out so many things like getting with Alter Bridge and getting the music and doing all of those things.

There were 9 or 10 days. I didn’t know immediately, but I thought that’s where I wanted to go. I really thought that working with [Christian Cage] again was what I wanted to do and how I pictured it in a perfect world. Beth said, ‘What’s your perfect world? ‘I was like, ‘My perfect world is that I end my career with [Christian].’ So suddenly that perfect world looked like it could be there. It’s tough to pass that up.”
