As we reported before, Edge revealed that he wanted to do more in WWE, but WWE Officials didn’t have much for him, so he decided to leave when his contract expired.

In an interview with CBS Sports, Adam Copeland revealed why WWE didn’t want him to do more than 10 matches in a year:

“There was also the conundrum that I was contracted for 10 matches a year. I offered to do more, but to their point, it wouldn’t feel quite as special, which I understood too.

It just felt like neither one of us really had any ideas and that’s never been the case before. So when you look at that and then I look at my best friend over there having the time of his life, at a certain point, once I thought, ‘You know what, I still have a window here where I can do this and I don’t feel like I’m maximizing that.’

I think that was really what it boiled down to.”

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.”
