Edge has acknowledged he’s had a “second chance” when looking back at his 25-year WWE career.
Having debuted for WWE in 1998 as a member of The Brood, there can be no doubt that ‘The Rated R Superstar’ has had illustrious career in the company. Winning multiple title belts throughout the entire time, he’s also been involved in some iconic moments including the first-ever TLC match and being the first to cash in a Money In The Bank briefcase.
However, it all came to an end in 2011 when neck fusion surgery forced Edge to retire from active competition. After a long recovery, he was finally able to lace his boots once more when he was a surprise participant in the 2020 Royal Rumble match.
Now reaching the milestone of two and a half decades with WWE, Edge has taken to social media to reflect on the career he’s been able to forge.
25 years ago today was my first match as Edge on television. Millions of miles, millions of faces, amazing experiences, lots of injuries, accomplishments that didn’t even exist when I started, but way more laughs than anything else. Having a second chance to do this has filled me with gratitude.
I’ve had an opportunity to get in the ring with a whole new generation of amazing talent and introduce Edge to a whole new generation of fans. That alone makes it a win. I’ve been able to make a living doing the only job I ever dreamed of. I know how rare that is. Thanks for watching Edge all these years.
Whilst having such a long career with the company, it is a surprise to many that there has been some talk that he may end his career outside WWE.
