Edge finally came back to confirm his return and announced his entry in the Royal Rumble match! According to what the WWE legend said, his arm is now fully healed, and he is ready to compete at full capacity. 

The last time Edge indulged in a heart-to-heart with the fans, he was brutally ambushed by Randy Orton, and before that, he shockingly announced his retirement. Although, this time he looks like he’s here to stay. 

Edge had his illustrious career cut short after suffering a series of back injuries in his career. Suffering from spinal stenosis, Edge was told in 2011 that he would never be able to compete again. 

If he did, he risked permanent paralysis in the lower half of his body or even death. The former WWE Champion left the ring after a teary farewell speech, thanking fans for the final time. He was subsequently forced to relinquish his newly won World Heavyweight Championship.
