• Edge Reveals Why He Was Always Loyal To WWE
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 WWF Attitude Era Legend was cleared of the disease several years later and made his triumphant return to WWE at the 2020 Royal Rumble and has worked as a part-time / special attraction WWE Superstar ever since.
During a recent interview with ‘Sportsnet 590’, the Rated-R Superstar revealed why he was always loyal to Vince McMahon’s company and never went to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (after he became a star in the WWF) or – in recent years – to Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling.
Here’s what Edge said:
“There was an opportunity to go elsewhere outside of WWE. Again, it’s where I’ve spent my entire career outside of the indies, right?
So, this year will be my 25th year with the WWE since my television debut, and having been there so long and understanding how it works and understanding just the machine that it is, there’s something to be said for that.
There’s also something to be said for trying something new and exciting and a new set of faces and a new way of the way things work.
I’ve always been a loyalist though in terms of that company. It’s what I grew up watching and it’s where I always wanted to get to.
What it boils down to I guess is where I think I can have the most fun honestly. That’s where I’m at in life.
It’s not like I’m grinding to get to WWE anymore so I’ve been there and I’ve done it and I’ve done everything and then some so, now it’s just a matter of what I enjoy the most and I think it’s there.”
