Edge Discusses Having to Retire, His First WWE Contract, and More
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.19.2013



- Chris Jericho's podcast Talk is Jericho featured WWE Hall of Famer Adam "Edge" Copeland as the second guest on the show. Below are some highlights:

Edge on having to be forced into retirement: "I really thought I would relax whenever that is, but with it being sped up a couple of years with the last injury, it was then like, 'Now what?' Kevin Dunn called the 'Haven' people because they had been looking to have a tie-in with Smackdown. 'Listen, we have this guy retiring. I think he could fill a good spot on your show.' That's kind of how that fell into place."

On details of his first WWE contract: "I got called up to J.R.'s office and he goes, 'We have a deal for you.' It was for $210 a week.' Because after the currency exchange, that worked out to 300 Canadian. They said just keep working. There was no farm system; they said, 'Keep getting booked.' I got signed at the end of '96 and then I kept working. They said, 'We'll call you when we're ready for you,' and I kept going wherever I could. But now, I had $210 or 300 bucks to at least eat. It was like, 'Here's a little morsel so you can keep doing your thing.'"
