Edge Talks Possible In-Ring Return After SummerSlam

Edge Talks Possible In-Ring Return After SummerSlam
Edge made a surprise appearance at SummerSlam spearing Elias interrupting his segment.


Edge talked about the segment on the most recent episode of “Edge and Christian’s Pod of Awesomeness.” This is where he made it known that he thinks he feels healthy enough for one more match.

"Literally five minutes before I saw you [Christian] backstage I was asked what I thought about going out and doing a promo. So, it was probably 15 minutes you saw me go out there; it was all last minute," said Edge. "Poor Elias had to go and write a song in like 15 minutes, so, tells you how much of a pro he is. Instead, he came up with great stuff. It was fun because it was like flying by the seat of your pants when you just find out at the last minute.

"In terms of the spear, what people don't know is that I do all my fight scenes; whatever it is. So, I've actually done a couple of spears acting and with that, there is contact where I am hitting stunt guys, land like you normally would except, honestly like in 'Haven' I did one to Kurrgan and we were landing on concrete and that was fine. I think in terms of my neck there is a lot of miseducation and a lot of 'it's this and this.' When I first found out with my retirement speech, I had said what I knew at that point but have since learned a lot more [about my neck injury] and know what my limitations actually are."

Edge has transitioned to acting since retiring from the ring and has appeared in a dozen episodes of the TV series Vikings. Contrary to popular belief, he does his own stunts during filming so he is aware of what he is physically capable of doing.

"I am a highly, physical person. All that stuff in Vikings, if you see me do it, especially coming up that is me doing it; they don't give me a stunt double," revealed Edge. "People might think it is a huge risk but I know where I am at and I have seen my neck guys down here and have told me the dos and don'ts. I am not in the midst of being told to retire so I am much more emotionally aware and hearing everything and going, 'okay, what are my limitations going forward so I know what they are?' Doing a spear isn't one of them."

Despite not having a match in eight years, Edge noted that he could probably do a match "tomorrow", but admits that WWE would not allow it.

“To be perfectly honest, I think I could do a match tomorrow,” Edge said on the show. “I might be blown up but I’d be okay. It’s just from what I know with the WWE medical staff, they won’t allow. It is what it is, right?”

Edge would talk about how he did have a doctor tell him that they could basically get his neck relatively healthy within 5 years. He’s also looking into getting stem cells done. The pro wrestling noted that while he could not return full-time, he thinks working another match is possible.

Edge was forced to retire from pro wrestling due to a history of neck problems in 2011.
