Edge Confirms Retirement Match Could Happen On WWE Smackdown

Tomorrow night on WWE Fright Night Smackdown, WWE Hall of Famer Edge with take on “The Celtic Warrior” Sheamus in Toronto. The match holds a lot of significance for Edge, as it was last year at this time that WWE Raw was in Toronto, his hometown, and he was letting fans know that he would return in one year to perform in the city again for the final time. Yes, The Rated R Superstar laid out his retirement match a year in advance, and with the emotional story he told last Friday on Smackdown about why he wanted to wrestle Sheamus, it is starting to look like it very well could be.

In an interview with ET Canada, Edge addressed whether his Smackdown match against Sheamus tomorrow will serve as his official retirement match.

“Here’s what I can honestly say, and this isn’t the answer that everybody is going to want,” he began. “I truly don’t know, I really, really, with 100% truth, say I don’t know, and that is strange for me, but I don’t, I really, really don’t. I’ve put some thought into it, but not a lot. This is the last match on my current contract, so I don’t know; I honestly don’t know.

“I probably won’t know until I get to the locker room that night and just decompress, let all the anxiety and tension that I never used to have before I performed, I have now, and that’s strange for me, and it makes it that much harder to do this. I’m going to be fifty in October; it is not easy anymore. Before what I used to just take for granted, that I used to be able to do, there’s a process and a fallout, and there’s a lot. It’s the dream gig, but, again, it is getting really hard.”
