WWE sources indicate that the Edge retirement from tonight’s RAW is 100% legitimate and not part of a storyline. The story that Edge told about tests coming back and showing issues with his neck are true. Edge was handed a mic at RAW tonight and told to go out and say bye however he wanted. No word yet what will happen to the World Heavyweight Title.
Previously here on WrestleHeat.com, we have reported news that Edge has talked about retiring in the past, and wanted to retire at WrestleMania in front of a Toronto crowd: “I might only have a couple more of these visits left in me, and I want to end my career in Toronto. Maybe if Mania is here,” he said in a early February 2011 live event in Toronto.
“Honestly, now I’m starting to think of things I want to do after,” Edge told PostCity.com not too long after. “I want to train and make an attempt at Everest. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to do it, but I think it would be cool to give it a shot. I still love it, it’s the greatest gig in the world for me, but I know my body can’t keep up with what my mind is telling me.”
