Originally published at Edge says there are ‘no hard feelings’ with WWE, he has a contract extension ‘in his inbox’
Amid speculation over his future in wrestling, Edge has taken the opportunity to clarify where things stand.
The 49-year-old posted a video to social media on Thursday. In it, he says that WWE is his “dream gig” and that he has a contract extension offer but does not know what to do.
He added that SmackDown this past Friday was the “highlight of his career” and was not sure whether it could be topped.
In full, he said:
Morning everybody. This is 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 friends and family, wondering what’s going on and concerned and, blah blah blah. So I just figured I’d 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; they didn’t deny me.
I have a contract extension sitting in my inbox. I just don’t know what to do. You know, the first time I had to retire, it was forced and this time, the choice is 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. You know, 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 great. But I need to sit with it and just know 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. So I hope that clears stuff up. I’m gonna go back to my coffee. See ya.
