While their experiences and reasons are not exactly similar, Edge knows the feeling of going out there in his prime and relinquishing a top championship due to severe health issues, much like Roman Reigns.
During his recent interview with Sports Illustrated, the Hall Of Famer talked about his SmackDown 1000 segment involving Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair and more.
While discussing Reigns’ battle with luekemia and him relinquishing the Universal Championship on Raw not too long ago, the Rated R Superstar said that the Shield Member handled it with class:
“I feel for him, but the best thing he can do is surround himself with his family, and that’s what he’s doing. As long as he gets healthy, who cares if he ever wrestles again? I watched him on Raw and thought that moment had to be really, really difficult, but he handled it with poise and class.”
Continuing on the topic, Edge also discussed how he only had to retire but in Roman’s case it’s a matter of life and death. He said you don’t expect this to hear from a guy who is in the prime of his career and looks like a superhero.
Apart from this, the WWE Legend also talked about how his recent visit to SmackDown made him realise that he no longer needs pro wrestling like he once did. You can check out his full interview here.
