After more than a decade, WWE
Hall of Famer Edge
performed in front of his home fans and main-evented this week’s Raw which took place in Toronto. Edge, whose real name is Adam Copeland, was born in Canada in 1973 and he performed in front of his home crowd.
After Raw went off the air, Edge interacted with the fans in attendance and confirmed his retirement plans. The 11-time World Champion revealed that he plans to retire in August 2023 after performing in front of his home crowd.
WWE stages its shows in many countries across the globe and Canada is one of the locations where the shows are held. The country has also hosted a Wrestlemania
“Yeah, he gave the impression the show in August might be SummerSlam
and that might be the end of the run. I think he said this could be the end of this run. He signed a three-year deal when he came back but of course, if he wants to retire he can retire. A lot of guys talk retirement and kind of keep going, it’s very hard to walk away from that, he was out for nine years and came back, he may feel that way today but a year from now who knows how he’ll feel,” the Rated-R Superstar said.
“He definitely hinted, I think he would want to retire in Toronto and choose his own way of retiring as opposed to being forced like the last time.”
Interestingly, it was in Canada that Edge teased coming out of retirement when he speared Elias at SummerSlam 2019. He made his full-time in-ring return at Royal Rumble 2020. Edge hasn’t won a title since his WWE return but has main-evented premium live events, including Wrestlemania 37.
Edge had to retire from in-ring action after Wrestlemania 27 due to neck issues.
