Edge comments on “emotionally tumultuous” week leading up to SummerSlam appearance

WWE Hall of Famer Edge has commented on making a surprise appearance on the pre-show for WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view event in Toronto, Ontario at the Scotiabank Arena.

In the segment, Elias was doing a concert where he was getting cheap heat by taking shots at the local fans. This is when Edge appeared and hit a spear to Elias, which got a big pop.

On Monday morning, the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion took to his official Instagram account where he commented on the segment. He also shared some backstory about how this week was the first time that he was in his hometown since his mother’s funeral.

He wrote the following:

“This week was emotionally tumultuous. I hadn’t been back to Toronto since my mom’s funeral. I’d been putting off coming up here and taking care of some things. But when I heard Summerslam was in Toronto and I knew Beth had NXT work to do, I decided it was time to come home. It was difficult. It was draining. It was therapeutic. It was cathartic. I saw some family. I saw some friends. Cried a little. Laughed A LOT. Found some things I thought were lost forever. Last night I had one of those “fairy tale” moments. I was also reminded that no matter what happens in life this will always be…home.”
