Edge Wants to End His WWE Story After Losing the New World Heavyweight Championship
Edge will face Rey Mysterio and AJ Styles in a triple-threat match on SmackDown tonight. If he wins, he will face the winner of another triple threat match to determine the final challenger for the new World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions on May 27.
In a recent video on Twitter, Edge announced that he plans to retire after losing the new World Heavyweight Championship. Here is what Edge said:
“Hi, everybody. So, uh this isn’t some kind of mapped-out wrestling poem or anything. I’m sitting in, what is my second home? A wrestling ring? Uh trying to get him some reps before Smackdown tomorrow night where I face Rey Mysterio and Aj Styles and I can’t say enough about those guys.
I know AJ and I have had our differences in the past. Uh, and you know, the history with me and Rey, those two guys are the reason a lot of people are in our industry and I expect to have one hell of a match. I also expect to win it. I have to, you know, some people have been running around saying they’re gonna finish their stories, right and good for them.
But it made me think a little bit about my story. The introduction of the W W E heavyweight championship. If I look at that thing, it even looks like the title that I never lost. Looks like big gold. 12 years ago, I was forced to give that thing up.
Never had a chance to get it back. Now. I have a chance and it all comes full circle now this ride. It’s gonna end sooner than later. Let’s face it. We all know that I gotta get this done. It’s the last thing to do. It’s the last, it’s the period at the end of the sentence, right? It’s the last sentence in the book.
I gotta get that stuff out of the basement and um I just gotta do it, you know, all of you that are watching this, I assume you’ve been with me on this ride and I appreciate it. Um, hm, it’s gonna end soon and I gotta end it right this time and there’s no better way to finish it than to win the world heavyweight championship. And then when I lose it, that’s it. I’m done, to Rey & AJ, bring your best tomorrow.
If Edge wins the new World Heavyweight Championship, it will be a fitting end to his Hall of Fame career. He will be able to go out on top, just as he planned. But even if Edge doesn’t win the title, he will still be remembered as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.
