There are some more details about when Edge’s WWE contract actually expires as the Hall of Famer ponders what’s next.

The August 18th edition of WWE Friday Night Smackdown in Toronto was a celebration of Edge’s 25-year career in WWE.

In the main event, Edge and Sheamus competed in their first singles match ever. Edge expressed a desire to wrestle Sheamus since they were good friends, yet they never had a match together until last night.

Edge and Sheamus would go on to have a very physical match with each man nearly winning multiple times. They kicked out of finishing moves as well, but Edge managed to bounce off the ropes and hit a Spear to put Sheamus away for the three count after nearly 20-minutes of action.

After the match, Edge told his hometown crowd full of family, friends and loyal fans that have supported him for three decades that he has to go home to think about what’s next.

Edge Provides Clarity About When WWE Contract Really Ends

In an interview with the FAN Morning Show, Edge revealed that his WWE contract actually ends in September although the last match he was contracted for was last night against Sheamus.

“I can’t say I haven’t thought about it, I have, for sure, but I realize that I haven’t come to any conclusions, and I’m kind of torn, honestly. I don’t want to do this to the point where I don’t feel like I’m able to have the output that I want. Only I know how I feel when I’m deep into a match. ‘Ooff, Okay, didn’t do enough cardio’ or ‘I did all the cardio and still feel this way.'”

“That’s why I really want to collect myself after this thing, take a big ol’ deep breath and decide what that is. My contract is up at the end of September. This is my last contracted match. I have a lot of decisions to make. I can’t do it now. I have to see how Friday goes. I know that’s not a clear answer, but I don’t have it yet.”

As you might expect, there has been a lot of online speculation about Edge when could be a free agent and if that could mean an appearance at an AEW show like All In next weekend. However, it was clarified in those comments that his WWE deal doesn’t expire until the end of September.

Regarding the future, Edge has the option of continuing in WWE by signing a new deal, he could retire from competing in the ring or look at appearing in other wrestling companies. Edge will turn 50 years old on October 30th. Obviously, he has a lot to think about moving forward.

With the Hall of Famer being the talk of the wrestling world, Bully Ray has given his thoughts on Edge signing with AEW.
