Edge Comments On WWE Contract Report Amidst AEW Speculation

WWE Hall of Famer “The Rated R Superstar” Edge revealed on WWE TV last year that he wanted to end his legendary in-ring career this 2023 at a show in his hometown of Toronto, Ontario, Canada and that WWE show just so happened to take place on an episode of WWE SmackDown last Friday night, where the Rated R Superstar faced Sheamus in a Singles Match and celebrated his 25th year in the wrestling business.

Edge’s WWE contract was reportedly set to expire this September, with his final match taking place on SmackDown last Friday night, but the WWE Hall of Famer revealed in an interview that his bout against Sheamus was indeed his final match in his WWE contract, though his contract with the WWE won’t expire until October and it has since been speculated whether he will truly retire, re-sign with the company or go to AEW.

It was previously reported that Wade Keller of PWTorch revealed that WWE Hall of Famer Edge presented the WWE with what it would take to keep him in the company, but it was believed that the WWE declined to meet the WWE Hall of Famer’s contract request and this has led to several people within the WWE to be under the impression that Edge will probably sign with AEW and they even knew at the time what AEW could and would offer The Rated R Superstar.

The WWE Hall of Famer himself took to his official Twitter (X) account and commented on the report of the WWE declining to meet his contract request and that he is AEW-bound.

This is what Edge said:

“Morning, everybody. That’s how I look in the morning. It’s not pretty, but I need my coffee for this. So I woke up to a bunch of voicemails, texts, and everything from actual, like, friends and family, you know, wondering what’s going on and concerned and blah, blah, blah. So I just figured I better address it. There’s nothing going on. There’s no hard feelings between me and WWE. I love WWE. It’s my dream gig. It’s all I ever wanted to do. And I didn’t come at them with some crazy contract or anything, and 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, and this time, the choice in my lap. And it’s 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 or this or that, but it’s not their career. That Friday night was really special for me. And I don’t know if that can be topped, to be perfectly honest. And if we think we can, then then great. But I need to sit with it and that whatever it is that I do, whether it’s Percy Jackson, which is coming up soon, or it’s wrestling, or it’s sitting in my rocking chair, it’s because I’m having fun and having fun at this stage of my life. And raising my kids are the two most important things.”
