Booker T believes Edge's retirement is imminent

Edge's return to the ring was one of the most thrilling events of recent years. Indeed, his career seemed to have ended in April 2011, when a stenosis of the spinal canal forced him to announce his retirement. To general amazement, the Canadian veteran returned to Royal Rumble 2020 and has established himself as a landmark on the WWE roster.

During his long and glorious career, the 48-year-old from Orangeville has racked up a staggering 31 titles. In addition to being an 11-time world champion and a 14-time duo champion, he has held the Intercontinental title five times and the United States Championship once.

As if that weren't enough, he won the 2001 edition of the 'King of the Ring' tournament, the 2005 edition of Money in the Bank and two editions of the Royal Rumble (in 2010 and 2021).

Edge is close to retirement?

A while ago, Edge revealed his intention to retire next year in Toronto, wanting to end his career on his terms (which he failed in 2011).

The former WWE Champion will face Finn Balor in an I Quit match at Extreme Rules. Given the absence of Roman Reigns, Edge should be the biggest pay-per-view star. Speaking to Sportskeeda, Booker T made an interesting remark about Edge: "It's time for Edge to step aside and I think Finn Balor will give him a good lesson in Extreme Rules." The two-time WWE Hall of Famer continued: "In recent times, Edge has often talked about his state of form and his bones starting to creak.

When a wrestler starts talking about retirement, he means that in his head he has already retired. Adam is on the final straight of his career." WCW legend Konnan is not of the same opinion: "Edge still has a lot to offer and he gets paid a lot of money despite his short schedule. These are the ideal conditions for a veteran like him."
