Last week, an integral member of the World Wrestling Entertainment roster who had departed from the company after his contract expired in 2010, Chris Jericho announced that he had no intentions to re-sign with the company after his three-year deal was up.
Rumors and speculation has been circling for quite some time now that another superstar, “The Rated R Superstar” Edge, also could possibly find himself ending his career inside the squared circle relatively shortly.
Today comes news that there might be more to the belief that this could be the World Heavyweight Champion‘s last run with the company.
According to a report from Dave Scherer, of PWInsider, that Edge isn’t exactly enjoying his time on the road with the company and has been telling friends that he could use a break after all the years put invested into becoming the top superstar he is today.
Edge‘s contract expires in 2012, and the report notes that it wouldn’t be surprising to see “The Ultimate Opportunist” take an extended break away from professional wrestling prior re-signing with the company if he decides not to immediately re-sign with World Wrestling Entertainment.
There has always been rumblings since his return at last year’s Royal Rumble match that Edge, who was returning after rehabbing a torn Achilles tendon that could have ended his professional wrestling career, might be looking at a future outside of the industry shortly.
Meanwhile, Edge is currently preparing for a World Heavyweight Championship title showdown at the upcoming pay-per-view event this Sunday against Dolph Ziggler, who will be accompanied by Edge‘s former fiancee, Vickie Guerrero — which could be his last Royal Rumble with the company if he indeed decides to hang it up.
