WWE announced that Edge (Adam Copeland) has undergone surgery to repair a torn triceps. Edge suffered the injury during his match with Randy Orton that aired on Sunday’s WWE Backlash pay-per-view. Read the official story at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: The story does not list a timeline for his return, but it is typically not a quick recovery. Various online medical reports suggest that it takes four to six months after surgery before strengthening exercises begin. Here’s wishing him the best in his recovery.
Edge’s in ring career may or may not be over for good only time can truly tell. However, his talents are limitless and I can foresee a future for him in the WWE even if he is not an in ring competitor anymore. He’s a good talker so could easily make the transition into a manager or even an announcer/commentator/interviewer etc. There’s also always the possibility of him becoming a trainer or a backstage agent as well. The possibilities are endless regardless of whether this injury spells the end of his in ring career or it eventually ends on his own terms.
I forgot to add that I wish him the best with his recovery.
