Edge on his retirement from pro wrestling, working with Lana, more



WWE Hall of Famer Adam “Edge” Copeland recently spoke with Brian Mazique of Forbes about various topics. During the interview, Edge was asked working with Lana on the WWE Studios film, Interrogation. Edge explained that he filmed the movie two years ago and that it was fun. He added that they filmed the movie in 11, which is very fast. He called it a classic WWE style movie and gave credit to the director Stephen Reynolds for being able to pull that off. Edge explained that everyone on set had to be on their toes and super prepared, especially Lana due to her WWE schedule. Edge stated that Lana was coming in straight off the road, had five days to film all of her scenes and head right back out on the road. “She nailed it,” Edge said.

When asked about his retirement from WWE a few years ago after dealing with a neck injury, Edge explained that it was not as difficult as many people thought it was for him. Edge knew about a week after he announced his retirement that it just sped up his decision to retire as he was planning to retire from pro wrestling the next year. Edge brought up when he tore his ACL back in 2009 that he started thinking about retirement. “At 35, that could have ended my career, so I had to come to terms with the possibility." Edge pointed out that he spent 15 years with the company and 20 years in total in wrestling so he had his fill of the pro wrestling business and that he accomplished everything he could in wrestling.
