Numerous current and former WWE stars commented on Edge’s retirement via Twitter.
Hulk Hogan: “if any of the guys like me, Flair, Hardy, Andre, AA, Blanchard, orndoff, Henning would have listened to doctors we would have quit15yrsago, but I don’t know Edges working environment because they are a media company not a wrestling company. HH wrestlers work hurt! What about Foley! I bet EDGE still wants to keep wrestling,he’s one of the boys big time!!! HH. my take is with a unfixable neck injury it’s over ,but he’s one of the boys and it will be hard to keep him down,he’s 4life HH”
After receiving criticism for his remarks, Hogan clarified his opinion: “I’m not saying anything bad about Edge but he’s a real wrestler,Stone Cold and Cena had neck surgery and u couldn’t stop em,Or Edge it’s in Edges blood,he lives for this business he’s a real wrestler,he a lifer,he’s one of the real boys,he’s hard to hold down,that’s all. HH”
Chris Jericho: “Edge is a great performer and 1 of my favorite opponents. He’s also got an incredible MIND for the business. Congrats on an amazing career”
Eric Bischoff: “Best of luck to Edge. Class guy and a great talent. He will find success in anything he pursues.”
