Edge says thankfully the doctors found out whatever they did because he won’t end up in a wheelchair now. The crowd claps for him. He says this is harder than he thought it would be and starts getting emotional. Edge says he feels like he’s let people down and talks about Christian. He says he was upset that is career isn’t ending on his own terms but Christian reminded him that his whole career has been on his own terms. Edge talks about being a big WWE fan like everyone else. Edge says winning his last match at WrestleMania and retiring as World Champion couldn’t be a better way to go out.
