Edge has opened up on suffering a torn triceps injury in his latest match. He lost to Randy Orton in a singles match at the WWE Backlash pay-per-view event in Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center.
The WWE Hall of Famer made an appearance on Booker T’s The Hall of Fame podcast where he explained how the injury happened.
“I did a springboard into the second RKO, I went ‘ooh,’ I got the cold sweats and I feel like I’m going to throw up. That’s usually a sign, that’s where it popped. I thought, okay, I think I have a little bit more in the tank to finish this out. We got it finished.”
He went on to talk about doing some pick-up shots for different angles after the match. When he went backstage, he thought that something happened to the tricep, but originally didn’t think it was a complete tear but knew something was wrong with it.
According to his doctor, the issue was already lingering before the match. The belief of his doctor was that it was partially torn because the tissue was already very diseased. Edge recalled how his elbow had been bugging him for probably about a month, but only when he did chest and triceps workouts.
Edge also noted how he’s glad the injury didn’t happen sooner as it would’ve been harder to suffer the injury two minutes into the match and try to pull off the rest of the match.
“I want to finish it on my terms. I’m really stubborn on that in this run. I really want to try and show that selling still sells. I feel like that’s been lost. Don’t get me wrong, I’m guilty, too.” He then talked about being younger and doing wild spots in TLC matches, but now wants to try to teach talent how to extend their careers in wrestling.
The belief is that he will be out of action for several months due to the recovery from surgery.
