Man, Edge can’t even talk about his Ten Club membership without getting hit with questions about coming out of retirement to wrestle again for WWE.
The Rated R Superstar probably should have expected it, agreeing to be a guest on Live On 4 Legs: The Live Pearl Jam Experience podcast right before Royal Rumble. Seems like he might have been, since he’s got a ready answer when it comes up 30 minutes into almost an hour of talking PJ:
