With speculation growing that he will retire soon, Edge has confirmed the last match of his current contract with WWE.
The Rated-R Superstar will celebrate his 25th anniversary in wrestling on the August 18th edition of SmackDown in Toronto, Canada.
The Celtic Warrior accepted the challenge and the pair noted their history together, with Sheamus having helped Edge get back to the ring, while he in turn had given Sheamus important advice when he was an up-and-coming star back in 2004.
Now, Edge has confirmed that the bout has even more significance as it’s the last of his current contract.
“This is the last match on my current contract” – Edge
During an interview with ET Canada, the star said that he “really doesn’t know” if the bout will be the last of his storied career, but it is the last of his current deal.
“Here’s what I can honestly say, and this isn’t the answer everyone wants. I truly don’t know. I really really, with 100% truth can say I don’t know.
“That’s strange for me, but I don’t. I really don’t. I’ve put some thought into it, but not a lot. This is the last match on my current contract. I don’t know. I honestly don’t know.
He went on to explain that he’s unlikely to be able to make the decision until after the match is over, although he admits that it’s been “getting really hard” to compete.
“I probably won’t know until I get to the locker room that night and decompress, let all the anxiety and tension that I never used to have before I performed, I have now.
“That’s strange for me and makes it that much harder to do this. I’m going to be 50 in October. It’s not easy anymore. Before, what I used to take for granted to be able to do, now, there is a process and a fallout. There’s a lot. It’s the dream gig, but it’s getting really hard.”
