Edge reflects on his first year as an active competitor (without taking time off for injury) since 2010.'
Edge had a remarkable 2021. From becoming the third man in history to win the Royal Rumble from the number one spot to headlining WrestleMania for the first time since 2008, Edge lived his dream all over again this year.
On Instagram, Edge reflected on this year's impact on his life. Recalling moments like reuniting with Christian in the Royal Rumble and his trilogy of matches against Seth Rollins, moments that were seven years in the making themselves.
Been a crazy year. Watching my girls makes leaps and bounds. Pandemics. Ya know the norm. But I lost track of everything that’s happened professionally this year. Until Beth reminded me why I’m a little tired. And a lot sore. It’s been kinda insane. And awesome. It might be my favorite year of my career. From The Royal Rumble and a reunion Jay and I both thought was off the table for good. Yet there we were. Getting our dreams back. To winnin the damn thing from #1 after 7 months off rehabbing a torn triceps. 11 years to the day from winning it the first time and joining some elite names. Main eventing WrestleMania 10 years to the day from my retirement against two all time talents in Roman and Bryan. And then there’s the Rollins/Edge trilogy. Those three matches will hold a very dear place in my wrestling heart when it’s all said and done and I’m whistling on the deck with a cup o joe(or whiskey). So now what? Keep it up. Try to keep up with today’s best. For as long as I can. C’mon 2022 let’s do this.
Edge kicks off 2022 with a match against The Miz at WWE Day 1. 12 years earlier, both entered a new year at the top of each WWE brand. That year, Edge would enter a nine-year retirement.
WWE Day 1 will be held on New Year's Day and Fightful will have live coverage.
