As reported repeatedly, WWE Superstar and the company's Hall of Famer, Edge, was injured in his last match against Randy Orton, in Backlash, injuring the triceps muscle in his right arm. This injury, although not one of the most important a wrestler can face in his career, is still one of the most difficult for an athlete to overcome, especially considering the fact that Edge is in his mid-fifties now.
Apparently, the rehabilitation from the arm injury is said to be longer than expected, with the athlete still struggling with the long physiotherapy and the movement of the right limb that would still be very far from being back to normal.
Edge tells us more about his injury situation
Recently interviewed by Busted Open Radio, the former WWE Champion wanted to give some fresh news about his recovery, also sharing with fans the fear that this time it will take much longer than usual to recover, with the Hall of Famer that in fact, he said: "I mean, I don't know.
It's a learning process because I'm going to be 47 next month, so I don't know how I'm going to recover from my injury, surgery and stuff like that. It is a very slow process. I don't want to lie. The triceps is a different thing.
I managed to come back from an injured Achilles tendon in six months, but I was 35 and had always done so, so now more than 10 years later, I don't know. It is a different thing. You could never understand how much your triceps is involved in all the most basic mechanisms for the movement of your arm.
So, I still don't know. I know it's a lot slower than I thought it would take because my mindset was' Ok, nothing serious. Operation, physiotherapy and we go out, put on another scar and go 'So, I don't know if it's the injury itself or if I'm a little older, I don't know these things, but it's not as fast as I thought it was."
At this point, it is unknown if Edge will be back in time to stage the plans WWE had in store for him and Randy Orton in 2021, with the massive feud between the Legend Killer and the Rated R Superstar expected to see the his end right at the turn of the Road to Wrestlemania of the prosismo year, with a title match at the Showcase of the Immortals that has already written itself on the event card.
