WWE Hall of Famer reveals why he was forced to retire
In a recent interview with TMZ, former WWE superstar Edge discussed the recently retired Daniel Bryan as well as his own injuries which prematurely put an end to his enviable career in WWE reports wrestlinginc.com.
On the topic on Daniel Bryan, Edge stated that injuries are something that will eventually catch up with any wrestler – no matter how good he is – while also noting that the treatment for various injuries still isn’t perfected, with a bit still left in the unknown.
When the topic of Edge’s injuries came up, the wrestler was of the opinion that he came out pretty unscathed, while noting that the numerous times he fell down the ladder took a toll on his neck, causing him to retire. Despite his career ending neck problems, Edge considers himself fortunate that his head remained unbattered.
The 42-year-old is still a respected figure in the wrestling business, forging his career way back in 1996 and picking up four WWE Championships, seven World Heavyweight Championships, five Intercontinental Championships, an enviable twelve World Tag Team Championships and two Slammy Awards along the way.
The legendary wrestler’s contribution to the sport was rewarded with an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012.
