Shawn's back was always a risk and he could have easily fucked it up worse than before. It's the same with Edge, but instead of additional back pains, we would be seeing Edge in a wheelchair or a coffin. It's absolutely not worth the risk, Edge seems to have conserved his wealth sufficiently enough that he doesn't need to work anymore. Plus I could imagine him taking up a second career in show business somewhere down the road when he feels up to it, he's got the skill set to pull it off.
Plus Shawn was in his early 30s when he got busted up, Edge is in his late 30s, big difference. 5 years is a minimum of 25% the lifespan of a wrestling career.
