Update On Edge's WWE Future Amid Rumours Of Possibly Jumping Ship To AEW
Edge provides an update on his WWE future
Much has been said about Edge's pro wrestling future over the past week since the 11-time world champion revealed that his SmackDown match with Sheamus on August 18 was the final match of his current WWE contract and he was unsure if he was going to retire. Edge has since revealed that his contract expires at the end of September.
Reports have noted the belief within WWE is that Edge is "probably headed to AEW". Edge reportedly presented to WWE what they would need to offer to retain his services but WWE declined to meet this request.
In an update from Edge himself on Twitter, the WWE Hall of Famer has revealed that WWE have offered him a contract extension. He remains uncertain about his pro wrestling future, however.
"There's nothing going on. There is no hard feelings between me and WWE. I love WWE. It's my dream gig. It's all I ever wanted to do. I didn't come at them with some crazy contract or anything. They didn't deny me. I have a contract extension sitting in my inbox. I just don't know what to do. The first time I had to retire, it was forced. This time, the choice is a lot harder. WWE gave me that night, Friday night in Toronto and it was the best night of my career. A lot of people will say 'You should retire at WrestleMania,' but it's not their career. Friday night was really special for me. I don't know if that can be topped, to be perfectly honest," Edge said.
"If we think we can, then great. I need to sit with it. Just know, whatever it is that I do, whether it's Percy Jackson or wrestling or sitting in my rocking chair, it's because I'm having fun and having fun at this stage in my life and raising my kids are the two most important things. I hope that clears things up."
After nine years in retirement, Edge returned to in-ring action at Royal Rumble 2020. He has since won one more Royal Rumble match and main evented another WrestleMania in WrestleMania 37.
