So this was my Sunday. Actually it was filmed two weeks ago. So I’m officially out of self quarantine and back to being dad. After being Edge for WrestleMania 36. For the first time in a singles match in 9 years. Against, in my opinion, the most naturally talented person in the industry in @randyorton I will always be proud of what we accomplished with some strange circumstances. I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of each other. And for that I’m strangely thankful. He pulled me to a 40 minute fight after being retired for 9 years. Wasn’t sure I had that in me. Now I know. He pushed me. For all of you, hopefully you watched WrestleMania and were able to get lost in it and try to forget about our current reality, even if only for a few hours. I’d also like to thank EVERYONE for the outpouring of positivity for the @wwe 24 documentary, The Second Mountain. Also, thank you to the ENTIRE team it took to support me and make all of this happen. I’ll get to you all on separate posts It’s humbling. Lastly, stay safe everyone.

He also revealed in the caption, that the match was not live and was filmed two weeks ago. “So this was my Sunday. Actually, it was filmed two weeks ago.

Earlier this month, Edge shared his feelings about performing in a centre without fans. Speaking about the changes made by WWE, the wrestler said people need to adapt to the situation. While he did acknowledge that the situation is not ideal, Edge confidently stated that he believes he and Orton will put on a great show for the audience. In the caption, the wrestler thanked Orton for pushing him and bringing out the best in him during the fight. 

“I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of each other. And for that, I’m strangely thankful. He pulled me to a 40 minute fight after being retired for 9 years. Wasn’t sure I had that in me. Now I know. He pushed me. For all of you, hopefully you watched WrestleMania and were able to get lost in it and try to forget about our current reality, even if only for a few hours,” he said while praising Orton. This is not the first time Edge has expressed his love for the wrestler, who happens to one of his closest friends.

During an interview earlier this month, Edge gushed about Orton. Edge said even when he sat and discussed the WrestleMania match with WWE officials, he knew he wanted to face Orton. He said there is no one better than him and that nothing can match the energy they have when they are together in a ring. Edge said they have a special understanding when they lock horns with each other and that kind of energy cannot be fabricated.

He concluded his caption by thanking his fans for welcoming him with open arms and showering him with love and support. “I’d also like to thank EVERYONE for the outpouring of positivity for the @wwe 24 documentary, The Second Mountain. Also, thank you to the ENTIRE team it took to support me and make all of this happen. I’ll get to you all on separate posts It’s humbling. Lastly, stay safe everyone,” he wrote.

On the second day of WrestleMania 36, Edge brutally defeats Orton in their Last Man Standing match and it was an emotional moment for Edge. It was one of the most heated matches of the event and was loaded with action from start to finish. This was Edge’s first singles match in nine years. Although the match started with Ortan calling the shots, Edge eventually turned things around.

Following some powerful blows by Orton, Edge gained control of the match and threw a sandbag at Orton. He then climbed up a ladder and went for an elbow drop. As Orton tried to pin edge down with RKO, Edge bounced back and ended the fight on an emotional note. With tears in his eyes, the wrestler hit Orton with a Con-Chair-To and won.
