Edge Set To Have Final Match Of Current WWE Contract
Edge's final match of his current WWE contract is upon us
Could Edge be set to leave WWE?
Speculation has swirled about Edge's retirement over the past year since he hinted in August 2022 that he could retire in 2023 after one more match in Toronto. That match in Toronto is ultimately upon us and Edge will celebrate the 25th anniversary of his WWE debut on the August 18 edition of SmackDown when he goes one-on-one with Sheamus.
If Edge will retire following the match is unknown and even the man himself doesn't know, he revealed to ET Canada. Edge did admit that Friday is the final match of his current WWE contract, though.
"Here's what I can honestly say, and this isn't the answer everyone wants. I truly don't know. I really really, with 100% truth can say I don't know. That's strange for me, but I don't. I really don't. I've put some thought into it, but not a lot. This is the last match on my current contract. I don't know. I honestly don't know. I probably won't know until I get to the locker room that night and decompress, let all the anxiety and tension that I never used to have before I performed, I have now. That's strange for me and makes it that much harder to do this. I'm going to be 50 in October. It's not easy anymore. Before, what I used to take for granted to be able to do, now, there is a process and a fallout. There's a lot. It's the dream gig, but it's getting really hard," Edge said, addressing rumours he could retire on August 18.
After nine years in retirement due to a serious neck injury, Edge made his return at Royal Rumble 2020, reportedly signing a three-year deal with WWE at the time. The Rated-R Superstar has since feuded with the likes of Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, The Judgment Day, and The Miz. He has also added one more Royal Rumble win and another WrestleMania main event to his list of accolades.
