Edge Provides Update On Return To The Ring


Edge tore his triceps this spring.

Edge tore his triceps during the filming of the Greatest Wrestling Match ever at WWE Backlash this spring. He was a guest recently on Busted Open Radio and gave an update on when he might be able to return to the ring.

“It’s a slow process. I’m not going to lie,” Edge said on his recovery. “The triceps is a different thing. I got back from an Achilles in six months, but I was 35 doing that, so at 10 plus years, I don’t know. It’s a different thing. You don’t realize how much your triceps is involved in almost everything you do in terms of arm movement.”

In terms of a time frame for return, Edge isn’t sure. His recovery has not gone as quickly as he had hoped.

“So, I don’t know yet. I know it’s a lot slower than I thought it was going to be because I just have this mentality of, ‘Right. No big deal. Surgery, PT and we grind through it, we break down the scar tissue and off we go.’ So, I don’t know if it’s the injury itself [or] if it’s I’m a little older, I don’t know what it is, but it’s not as fast as I would’ve liked.”

Edge noted that now, at 47 years-old, he may have to be more patient with his body.

“I just assume by three months, I should be almost ready to go and that’s not the case. So, maybe I just need a little more patience with my body now,” he continued.

He continued to say that his recovery won’t be more difficult than returning from neck issues or Achilles’ problems was. As a result of his age, however, it will take longer.

“Nothing is going to be harder than the neck was nor the Achilles for that matter, so it might just take a little longer than I want this time. So I have to come to grips with that, and I have to realize I’m dealing with a different reality now.”

Edge does not have a time frame for his return but is looking forward to coming back when he is able to.

“So, I’ll get back. I don’t know what the time frame is, but I will because when I do watch, man, I get excited because I’m chomping at the bit to get in there with guys and really just try and hands-on, show them and just the difference of how it can be.”
