Edge is arguably one of the greatest wrestler of all time, he has achieved everything there is in WWE. Edge has won championships, Royal Rumble, and Money In The Bank. Edge made his WWE debut in 1998, nobody would be expected Edge to be wrestling in 2023. Edge would be celebrating his 25th anniversary on this week’s SmackDown.
Edge on last Friday’s SmackDown called out Sheamus. Edge had lots of good things to say about Sheamus, Edge thanked Sheamus for his help and also expressed his wish to face Sheamus on this week’s SmackDown, which is also Edge’s 25 anniversary.
Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio reporting that Edge last year told that he would be retiring at SummerSlam 2023, Meltzer also notes that Edge might have assumed SummerSlam 2023 would be held in Toronto.
“There’s a big thing here. A year ago, Edge had said he was gonna retire at the (2023) summer show in Toronto.And Ron Hutchinson, who is Edge’s trainer, and has known Edge for 30 years, he basically said that this is Edge’s last match. They certainly did not (build it up like that). But that was interesting where he said it’s probably – it’s most likely Edge’s last match.
I think the idea was that Edge thought that maybe SummerSlam was gonna be in Toronto and was hoping for that, and then that would be where he would retire. Because he wants to retire in Toronto, and this is the year he was talking about retiring, for real, the second retirement.
“This is the last Toronto show for a while, I mean, there’ll be another one. So I don’t know if this is the retirement, they’re not billing it as such, but his trainer said that it’s probably his last match.” (H/T: WrestleTalk.com)
