On April 11, 2011, just days after retaining the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXVII, Edge retired from professional wrestling due to cervical spinal stenosis. A year later, The Rated-R Superstar was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
No one ever expected him to return to the ring, but he did. On January 26, 2020, Edge made a triumphant return at WWE Royal Rumble where he made it to the final three. He would then tear his tricep during an intense match with Randy Orton at WWE Backlash 2020 that would sideline him for seven more months.
After all of that, Edge has returned better than ever. He is having some of the best matches of his career including at WWE Crown Jewel. His match with Seth Rollins inside Hell in a Cell followed two great matches between the two men in recent months, ending a great rivalry in style.
It was the match of the night and the best performance in any Saudi Arabia show by WWE to date. The Rated-R Superstar is in the best shape of his career, doing what he loves at the highest level he has ever performed.
That would be impressive on its own, but doing all of this after a nine-year hiatus is truly one of the most incredible stories in wrestling.
There have been quite a few great returns to wrestling in recent years, but Edge stands amongst the very best in a return to form that could genuinely put him in the conversation for greatest of all time.
