Edge issues statement on WrestleMania return



While WWE Hall of Famer Edge made his return to in-ring action back in January at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event, he had his first one-on-one contest on Sunday night.

The former WWE Champion battled Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing Match at WrestleMania 36 - Night 2 in Orlando, Florida at the WWE Performance Center on the WWE Network.

While the match has received criticism for the match being too long, the two worked hard in a tough situation.

This contest marked Edge’s first match back at WrestleMania in 9 years as he was last in action at the event against Alberto Del Rio in the opening contest of WrestleMania 27.

Edge took to his official Instagram account where he wrote the following:

“So this was my Sunday. Actually it was filmed two weeks ago. So I’m officially out of self quarantine and back to being dad. After being Edge for WrestleMania 36. For the first time in a singles match in 9 years. Against, in my opinion, the most naturally talented person in the industry in @randyorton I will always be proud of what we accomplished with some strange circumstances. I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of each other. And for that I’m strangely thankful. He pulled me to a 40 minute fight after being retired for 9 years. Wasn’t sure I had that in me. Now I know. He pushed me. For all of you, hopefully you watched WrestleMania and were able to get lost in it and try to forget about our current reality, even if only for a few hours. I’d also like to thank EVERYONE for the outpouring of positivity for the @wwe 24 documentary, The Second Mountain. Also, thank you to the ENTIRE team it took to support me and make all of this happen. I’ll get to you all on separate posts It’s humbling. Lastly, stay safe everyone.”
