WWE World heavyweight champion Edge was interviewed by the Charlotte Observer this week and shed some new light on how much longer he plans to be an active wrestler. Here are some highlights of what Edge said about:

TLC Matches From The Attitude Era: “I’m relieved I don’t have to do it as much. I still get called on to do it every once in a while. I had 19 ladder matches and most guys have never had one. It’s taken a toll. Now everyone understands I only have so many more of those in me.”

His First WrestleMania “The first one that I was on contract for I wasn’t (wrestling) on the show. I was trying to soak it in. For the guys, it’s a huge buildup. You’re really ramped up. It’s our Super Bowl. You worked your whole year to get on the show. That’s what I realized not being on it. The following year at WrestleMania 16, Christian and I teamed up and won the tag-team championship. We grew up together and always dreamed of doing it.”

When He’ll Retire: “Maybe a couple years. Five? It’s up to my body, which also depends on the kinds of matches…. I want to be able to function and walk and hike these hills.”

What He’ll Do After Wrestling: “I might do a sports talk show up in Canada. Maybe working behind the scenes of WWE. Beyond that, writing and illustrating children’s books would be fun.”
