-- The Miami New Times has an interview with Edge hyping this Sunday's WrestleMania pay-per-view. During the interview, Edge was asked if there were any goals in the sport that he was unable to achieve before his early retirement. "Actually, no," Edge replied. "I'm able to retire content with the fact that everything that was on my checklist, and then some, got accomplished.
"When I first started my career, there wasn't a Money in the Bank match and I ended up winning the first Money in the Bank. There wasn't a TLC [tables, ladders and chairs] match and that's a match we kind of created. On top of the things I did want -- the Tag Team title, the Intercontinental title, the U.S. title and the Heavyweight titles -- these other things came about during my career that I never would have thought possible to accomplish because they weren't around. In that respect, I feel really good and it wasn't hard to hear the news that they gave me. Sure, there's an initial kind of 'Whoa! Now what do I do with myself?' But once I got my head around that, I was like, 'Well, I did everything I set out to accomplish.' I wanted to wrestle Bret Hart, but he was already retired, so that wasn't a possibility. Perfect world -- retiring in a match against Christian in Toronto at a WrestleMania would have obviously been great. But there's only so many perfect things you can have happen, and everything else I was pretty much blown away by. Retiring at 'Mania as the World Champ is a pretty good way to go. I'll take that.
