The hope continues. Last year, Daniel Bryan shocked the wrestling world by receiving full clearance to return to the ring. Not only did Bryan come back to the ring, but he even won the WWE Championship and defended it at WrestleMania 35. The surprise gave fans hope that it could happen with others, and after something that happened at Summerslam, a certain name is on the fans’ minds.
In a recent episode of E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, Edge talked about spearing Elias at Summerslam and says that he feels like he could have a match “tomorrow”. Edge also said that a doctor told him that his neck could be relatively healthy after five years of rest, though it is not clear if that means five years from today or five years after he initially retired. He is also looking into stem cell therapy to heal his neck and believes he could wrestle once, though not on a full time basis. At the moment, there is no word on WWE allowing Edge to wrestle again after he retired due to his neck injury eight years ago.
It was a long time ago. Check out Edge’s retirement speech from 2011:
Opinion: Before last year, I would have said this is never going to happen but since then I have learned to never say never in wrestling. There is a chance that Edge could get back in the ring, though I really don’t think it is going to happen. Edge having one more match would be a huge deal and at 45 years old it isn’t out of the question. It could happen under the right circumstances, but time will tell.
Do you think Edge will wrestle again? Who would you want to see him face? Let us know in the comments below.
