Edge Confirms He Had Outside Interest Before Returning To WWE
Edge had other options before his WWE return
Edge’s WWE return at the 2020 Royal Rumble was a joyous affair, with the ‘Rated R Superstar’ making his return to a WWE ring for the first time since his early retirement in 2011.
However, during a recent conversation with Sportsnet 590 The Fan, the multi-time world champion revealed that he had offers to wrestle outside of WWE before making his return:
“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,” said Edge.
Edge is set to wrestle Finn Balor inside Hell in a Cell at WWE WrestleMania 39.
