Edge: In A Perfect World, My Last Match Will Be Next Year In Toronto

In a perfect world, Edge has his sights set on WWE's return to Toronto for his last match.

The August 22 episode of WWE Raw was held in Toronto, and Edge competed in the main event of the show. He defeated Damian Priest in a hard-fought match, which was his first bout in the city in 12 years.

In a post-match promo, the WWE Hall of Famer stated that he'd like to have his last match in Toronto when WWE returns next year.

"30 years ago, 30 years ago, July 1st, 1992, I had my first wrestling match as Adam Copeland. I knew one day, I’d be standing right here in front of you, I just knew it. What I didn’t dream of is that I would have to retire for nine years and fight, fight with every fiber of my being to get this back. All of you are the reason for that. This is a reciprocal relationship. I just went toe-to-toe with one of the best talents and the future of this industry in Damian Priest. I can’t wait to do it some more. I can’t wait to hopefully come back one last time, one last time here in Toronto. I’m looking at the calendar, we usually come here in August. So next August, I plan on seeing each and every one of you, and in a perfect world, we’ll all say goodbye to each other that night. Hey, that’s okay, man. This is the place for me to do it. I mean this when I say it — I love all of you. In case you missed it, I love being Canadian," Edge said.

Edge was one of WWE's top stars throughout the 2000s, and he won 11 world titles during this run. He was forced to retire due to his neck injuries, and he returned nine years later at the Royal Rumble match in 2020. Edge then suffered a torn triceps in June 2020, so he was forced to miss several months.

He returned again at the Royal Rumble event in 2021 and won the namesake battle royal. Since then, he has been featured on WWE programming. He founded The Judgment Day earlier in 2022 and has been feuding with the group since they kicked him out on June.
