Welcome Back Edge!

This morning I found a piece I wrote almost 9 years ago when Edge was forced into an early retirement.

I only went looking for it because The Rated-R Superstar made his highly-anticipated return at the 2020 Royal Rumble last night.

Every single thing about this return was perfect.

For one, he has arguably my favorite theme song in the history of wrestling.

The look on his face as he comes through the smoke speaks volumes. It's a real emotional moment that wrestling is able to deliver from time-to-time.

It's always incredible to see your favorites return to the ring, but the most important thing is that this gives him the opportunity to leave on his own terms.

That is something that I wish everyone was afforded in this business, but unfortunately the reality is that far too often it doesn't play out that way.

Anyhow, welcome back Edge! I speak for a bunch of us when I say that I'm looking forward to what this second act of your career gives us.
