New challenges, and if you’ve followed my career, you know that’s what I’ve always been driven by.” Edge wrote on the first tweet.
In his second tweet, he expressed his gratitude to WWE for giving him the life that he has today. Edge wrote, “But first and foremost I want to address my 25 years with WWE.
