Edge: I'll Be At The ThunderDome Every Week, I'm Not Here To Play The Greatest Hits

Edge made his return to the ring at WWE Royal Rumble 2021 after nearly year away following a torn triceps suffered at Backlash 2020.

Edge not only won the Men's Royal Rumble, but he showed up the next night on WWE Raw and wrestled "one last time" against Randy Orton on Monday's Raw. Edge is also set to appear on Friday's SmackDown as he continues to ponder his decision of who to face at WrestleMania 37.

Speaking to CBS Sports, Edge confirmed he's not coming back to just play the hits.

"I didn't come back to just do a greatest hits tour," he said. "That's not why I came back. I didn't just want to do regurgitated greatest hits. I wanted to come back because I wanted to tell compelling stories. I wanted to get in with a lot of talent so that ... if I could impart wisdom from 29 years of doing this, in terms of trying to tell a story, that's really exciting for me. I love so much of this talent, and it's exciting to be able to get in with them. Did I necessarily know that I was going to try to work toward WrestleMania? No. A lot of those things are out of your hands. I did know I was going to put the work in to be able to do it if called upon. That's part of my responsibility in coming back, as well."

Edge continued by saying, "I don't just want to be another body. I want to be able to help, and to help the totality of the industry if I can. If that means that this year Edge main events WrestleMania? Ok. I will do my part to make that happen and make it as compelling as I possibly can. But I also want to get in there with loads of talent. My goal is to come back and tell great stories in the main event of WrestleMania or on Raw, whatever it is. I came back committed to this. After my family, this is my top priority. If I'm asked to be in a title program heading into WrestleMania? I'm here every week. That's the way I operate. I'm not going to be a guy who comes in for one week and floats off for eight weeks. If I'm involved and I'm in the mix, I'm going to be here every week because that's how I operate."

Edge entered the Men's Royal Rumble at number one and outlasted 29 other superstars to stand at the end, pointing to the WrestleMania 37 sign.
