Speculations Surrounding Edge’s WWE Retirement

Rumours have been swirling about Edge’s potential retirement, especially after his scheduled face-off with Sheamus on SmackDown.

This match holds significance as Edge has never previously squared off against his good friend, Sheamus. Adding fuel to the fire, Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that Edge might hang up his boots post this SmackDown match.

The underlying reason? Edge’s aspiration is to retire in Toronto, his hometown. With the upcoming SmackDown being the last in Toronto for a while, many believed it could be Edge’s farewell.

The Truth Behind the Rumours

However, Ringside News claim to have reached out to sources close to the situation. A seasoned member of the WWE creative team clarified that there are no immediate plans for Edge to retire post the upcoming SmackDown.

This revelation means that the much-anticipated match against Sheamus in Toronto won’t be Edge’s swan song…hopefully.

It’s worth noting that Sheamus played a pivotal role in Edge’s decision to return to the ring, convincing him that he could still take on the physical demands of wrestling.

Although he might not be gracing the WWE stage as a full-time performer, it’s clear that Edge isn’t ready to bid farewell to his WWE journey just yet.
