Edge Talks Plans WWE Had for Him Before His Abrupt Retirement, Which Current WWE Star He’d Like to Wrestle, Jeff Hardy

WWE Hall Of Famer Edge recently spoke to Sports Illustrated for their Fact or Fiction segment. You can check out some highlights here:

On plans WWE had for him:

“I was champion and I wanted to pass this on to whomever it was eventually, so it really hit home when I was told, ‘We’re not going to allow you to compete anymore.’ We did have a tentative plan to go forward once [Alberto] Del Rio and I were through our program. Christian would have cost me the title to Del Rio, and then we would have moved on and done our thing – and I thought he would retire me at WrestleMania. That’s how I wanted to go out. I wanted to do the favor, drop the title, and then have Christian be the cause – then spend the final few months of my career wrestling my lifelong best friend, and really have him go off in a great heel direction once I retired.”

On Jeff Hardy:

“The fact that he is still able to move, at this point, is amazing. He’s made such a plaster scene. Even just his energy, he’s very loose. He’s an easy-going guy, and maybe that translated to his body being able to absorb all that punishment through the years. I don’t know, but he’s still going, and that’s a fact.”

On who he would like to wrestle:

“If you put a heel “Rated R Superstar” with Sami Zayn as a babyface, that would be something I would like to do. Seth is already set and already in a position where he’s OK, but if I ever came back, I’d like to wrestle somebody that I feel deserves to be in a top spot and show why. Sami is a guy I look at and go, ‘Man, that guy is so super talented.’ I’d love to get in there as a heel with Jeff Hardy. I loved wrestling Jeff in terms of his selling and all those things, or a match against Christian.

    Christian got his due with two World Heavyweight Championship reigns, they were short, but he got them. I honestly felt if they would of let him have a 3-4 month run, fans like you and I would be happier about his career and not saying he never got it. I really wish, he would of had a nice healthy run rather then 30 days from two runs.

    That’s too bad about the E&C thing. Especially for Christian. Felt like the guy never got his due. That would have been it had Edge not been forced to retire.
