Finn Balor on Edge: “I’ve been a huge admirer of Edge, not only as a performer but as a person”

Edge is arguably one of the greatest wrestler to ever step foot in the ring. Edge retired in 2011 due to his neck injury, everybody thought it was the end of Edge but it was not. After nine years Edge made his return back to WWE at Royal Rumble 2020, he received huge pops from the fans.

Finn Balor recently was on WWE After The Bell podcast, where he talked about Edge, Finn Balor says he has always admired Edge.

“I’ve been a huge admirer of Edge, not only as a performer but as a person for his whole career. We became close many, many years ago. When he retired, I was personally disappointed for the fact that I’d thought I’d missed out on that opportunity to possibly someday share a ring with him. I always admired how he transitioned out of pro wrestling so gracefully, and I thought ‘If someday I’m gonna retire from this business, I wanna do it the same way Edge has done it.’ A lot of people don’t transition out of the business as gracefully or with as much dignity as he returned the first time, and for that, I respect and admire him.” (H/T: EWrestlingNews)
