We now have some more news on WWE superstar Edge retiring from the company. Edge (real name Adam Copeland) went in for his MRI the day after WrestleMania 27, which was last Monday, which explains why he missed the April 4th edition of RAW from Atlanta, Georgia.
Edge did fly to Charlotte for last week’s SmackDown, as they set up the Wrestlemania rematch for the Extreme Rules – Edge vs. Alberto Del Rio. The World Heavyweight champion learned of his Neuropraxia, a spinal condition which causes numbness and trembling in the arms, at the end of last week — after the SmackDown! tapings were already completed and the match at Extreme Rules was confirmed, and was advised to retire from the ring.
