As the WWE universe eagerly anticipates Edge’s final match under his current WWE contract, the iconic wrestler shares candid insights into his impending retirement and an amusing contract arrangement with his spouse, the renowned WWE Hall of Famer, Beth Phoenix.
In a recent exclusive interview, Edge opened up about his feelings regarding retirement, admitting that while he has given it some thought, he hasn’t allowed himself to delve too deeply into the concept.

He went on to playfully add that his daughters would play a pivotal role in orchestrating his pyrotechnic entrances, injecting a personal and family-oriented touch to his post-wrestling journey.
Edge’s final WWE match under his current contract is set to take place against the formidable Sheamus on this week’s highly anticipated episode of “WWE SmackDown.” The wrestling legend has hinted on several occasions that 2023 might spell the end of his illustrious in-ring career, commemorating three decades in the wrestling business and a quarter-century under the “Edge” moniker.
This isn’t the first time Edge has stared retirement in the face. In 2011, he was forced to step away from the squared circle due to a severe neck injury, a hiatus that lasted a grueling nine years. However, the wrestling world was left astounded when Edge made a triumphant return at the 2020 Royal Rumble as an unexpected entrant. His remarkable comeback continued to make headlines, culminating in a historic victory at the 2021 Royal Rumble, where he emerged victorious from the challenging number-one position, signaling a resounding renaissance in his storied career.
As Edge approaches this pivotal moment, fans and fellow wrestlers alike are eagerly awaiting his decision regarding retirement. The unusual contract with Beth Phoenix not only showcases his witty personality but also underscores the unique bond he shares with his wife in navigating life inside and outside the ring.
