WWE: The REAL Reason Why John Morrison and Drew McIntyre are Jobbers?

Hello Revolutionaries, RiZE here with an interesting set of news. It’s no secret that I am the biggest John Morrison mark on this planet. As of late, the frequency of stories revolving around Morrison’s impending WWE departure have gotten to a point where I don’t blame Morrison for exiting the WWE. Since his return, Morrison has become the WWE’s most noteworthy jobber, losing squash matches to the likes of Alberto Del Rio, Mark Henry, and Christian in less than five minutes.

The reason for Morrison’s relentless burial is reportedly his relationship with former WWE Diva, Melina.

For some time now, rumors of Melina’s infidelity and promiscuous behavior have caused fans and Vince McMahon to view Morrison in a negative live. Morrison refused to confront Dave Batista after he had a sexual relationship with Melina and this caused McMahon to lose respect for Morrison as a man. Yeah, the infamous Vince McMahon mentality strikes again.

The WrestleMania 27 fiasco with Melina/Trish Stratus followed by Melina attending a RAW episode a few days after her release from the company reportedly put backstage heat on JoMo. Morrison, who had just returned from a neck injury, was subject to a loss in every match he competed in.

With the exception of three matches, John Morrison has lost every single match he has partaken in since his return. This isn’t just live television, this is house shows included.

While most tend to blame WM 27 and Morrison’s “attitude”, a report published by F4WOnline.com, states “It’s believed that John Morrison will be leaving WWE soon. It’s said that he has done nothing wrong or caused trouble for officials but there’s speculation that like Drew McIntyre, Morrison is paying the price for who he was dating – former WWE Diva Melina”

On AfterBuzz, Maria Kanellis and Lilian Garcia spoke highly of Drew McIntyre and John Morrison before questioning why both aren’t getting pushed.

Here’s what Maria had to say about McIntyre:

I have a feeling he’s paid for someone else’s sins, problems, because Drew’s really good. I’d love to see him do more stuff, but it’s unfortunate that that happens.”

In case you’re unaware of what Maria’s referring to, McIntyre and his then wife, Taryn “Tiffany” Terell, got into a confrontation in Los Angeles last year shortly before Summerslam. It was reported that Terell was physical with McIntyre and was arrested for domestic violence. Tiffany was released by the WWE a few weeks later while McIntyre has been reduced to jobbing since the WWE Draft.

A few moments later, Maria said this about Morrison:

“I think it’s a lot of complications of outside stuff. I think that a lot of times they go with who’s going to be there, who’s always going to be there, who’s going to be the easiest. He’s very easy and I love him to pieces, but I think its outside complications. I think that’s why.”

Before I could hand out my “I told you so” to those who’ve defended Melina, another report was published by WrestleNewz.com.

This time, it was Melina responding to a comment made by some guy on twitter. The individual said “Will you stand trial for killing your bf’s career” #PrayForJoMo.”

The individual sent this to Melina after Morrison was buried by Christian in a short match and was subsequently attacked by Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, and Dolph Ziggler.

Melina responded via direct message and had this to say:

“The WWE did it. I never did anything but stand by him through thick and thin. We should all be so lucky as to have someone like that in our lives.”

“John worked his ass off and did EVERYTHING he was told. The blame shouldn’t be put on me. Blame the WWE”

I’m a little half and half on this situation. For one, I don’t think talented superstars like McIntyre and Morrison should be blamed for the actions of their significant other. Simply put, we can blame the WWE for this as they’re the ones administering the burials.  On the other hand, I do feel as if Melina has contributed greatly to the downfall of Morrison and the backstage opinion of him.

In the end, it’s sad that these guys are in their position they’re in because of this.

I stand behind Morrison’s decision to leave and McIntyre should consider doing so too as he hasn’t won a match in ages.

I wonder if McMahon would forgive them if they were bodybuilder like and equipped with an unlimited supply of baby oil.

Come on, you know it’s true.

WWE Journal Entry: My Story of Becoming a Professional Wrestler

By Bleacher Report Featured Columnist: Jon Fisher

Ever since I was a little kid, all I ever dreamed of was becoming a WWE superstar. Growing up watching Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka and Shawn Michaels, I believed in my heart that a small guy like me could make it.
There was this one moment that hooked me for life. I watched the first Wrestlemania and that just blew me away. The adrenaline rush and excitement overtook my soul and I knew that’s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

In the back yard, my friends and I always practiced moves on our trampoline and even on the ground sometimes. Money was tight other years. No matter the circumstances, I persisted along with heart and passion.

We even had our bed sheets set up just like a curtain. My one friend brought his radio over and we had our own entrance music.

Each day passed and I felt like I was getting closer to the ultimate goal. I’ve been practicing my moves and it looked as if the next step in journey was to test out the Indie scene. Only a high school graduate, I had a choice to make.

Instead of college, I chose my true addiction: professional wrestling.

I mean, I had experience in middle and high school, so it isn’t like I was completely oblivious to the sport. Moving on to the indie scene, it was a culture shock.

 

Everything I believed it was became a rude awakening. My body wasn’t prepared for the constant beating and travel. Not to mention I worked a night job on the side to make ends meet.

At this time, my parents didn’t believe professional wrestling was a responsible way to live a life. I was on my own at the age of 19.

A few months into the indie scene, I became acclimated to my surroundings. I had the people I enjoyed working with and vice versa. Naturally, I was the underdog, because most competitors were much bigger than me.

Unfortunately, the wear and tear of my body finally caught up to me. During a match on a cold Saturday night, I was minutes away from defeating Steel Cobra, until I went for a suplex and my leg gave out.

The MRI revealed the next day that I tore my ACL. I was on the shelf for about a year.

Going through my head, I contemplated quitting. The people who didn’t get injured and were out there every night getting one step closer, while I sat and was painfully hurt physically and mentally.

I looked in the mirror depressed, full of hatred and said to me, “You can do this.”

A year past and I was back in the squared circle. Now 21, this year felt like the year to break through.

 

Doing show after show, I was starting to hone my skills. My favorite part was my high-flying set. I felt as if I was on top of the world.

After a couple of months, a man approached me about working for the WWE. I was completely blown away by his offer. Never in a million years, did I feel that I was good enough for the biggest wrestling promotion in the world.

I witness guys like Batista, Triple H, the Rock, John Cena grace the stage with a bodybuilder persona. I was a small high-flyer, so why would Vince McMahon want me? Only so few small guys break through in this business.

In a heartbeat, I accepted his offer and I was on my way to Florida to perform in FCW, the minor leagues of the WWE.

There was one problem though, instead of using my name, Vince created a name for me. I wasn’t too keen on the idea, but I didn’t have a choice really. Jason Steele was my name. I kept my gimmick, so it’s no tragedy.

I busted my butt in FCW, working every match like it was my last. I saw most guys spend a lot of time in FCW, just about a year, but they called me up after about five months.

Reactions were limited at this proposition. I said yes, not knowing the journey ahead of me. 300 days on the road, missing loved ones and sleepless nights were included in the package deal.

 

My debut match was on Friday Night Smackdown. I was set to face the Great Khali in a squash match. I didn’t know what to think. Why would they bring me up just to get crushed?

Sticking to my guns, I kept my mouth shut and the giant pinned me in a matter of minutes. One squash match turned into months of humiliation, as I was what’s known as a “jobber.”

That term to me was a bad enough word, but to be associated with such a label hurt me. I was always taught that battling through adversity will make you stronger. Thus, I continued on.

After a few years on the main roster, doing backstage segments and random interviews for WWE DVD’s, I got a call that I would be put in a feud for the Intercontinental Championship.

My eyes lit up like a kid at Christmas. I saw guys like Chris Jericho grace the belt and it was an honor to be able to hoist such a prize. The feud was against Rey Mysterio. I was even more gracious, because I could now showcase my unique wrestling style. Although, my mic skills needed work.

That’s another thing I noticed. If you couldn’t talk or bench press a truck, a main event wasn’t in your future. For this reason, it became my personal crusade to put smaller guys on the mark, along with HBK.

 

After four months of back-and-forth action, I finally won the belt at SummerSlam. I finally reached another one of my dreams. This beats the paper belt I created out of macaroni art in grade school.

Creative was high on me as champion, so they said a long reign would be in my favor. Indeed it was, five months to be exact. I went through talent after talent. Feud after feud, I was finally inching closer to my ultimate goal.

It was time for the Royal Rumble and I dropped the Intercontinental Title at the previous Raw show. Before the pay-per-view, we found out who was going to win and go onto headline WrestleMania.

On the drive to work, I didn’t believe it to be true. There was no way I could win the Rumble. As I stumbled through the door, one of my friends approached me and asked if I heard the news.

I shook my head and was curious. He told me they picked the winner for the Rumble. Those same eyes lit again. I sprinted into Vince’s office and on the poster-board, I saw my name.

I cannot explain the emotion that rushed through my body. It was as if a rollercoaster started at my head and down into my toes. I won the Royal Rumble. I actually did it. As I through the last man over the top rope, I just cried.

Bawling my eyes out, with streamers falling from the ceiling, I wept in happiness. I was about to enter a world where my dream started back in the days of childhood.

There isn’t much to comment in between the Rumble and the Grandest Stage of them all except for my adrenaline high every day. I was feuding with John Cena, who will hold the title at WM. Everyone counted me out.

That’s what made my crusade for the WWE Championship even more special. If I defeat him, I will have taken down the proverbial beast.

The day finally came. It was the day of WrestleMania. I entered through the door of the building and I couldn’t breathe. Full of emotion, I laced up my boots and prepared for the main event of the biggest wrestling spectacle in the world.

It was time. My match was about to begin and the director cued my music. I ran through that curtain like I practiced all those years ago. It was finally time. The bell rang and finally, I was here.

The match lasted 45 minutes. There was no blood. There were no chair shots or hardcore paraphernalia. Only pure wrestling. Cena went up for his standard finisher, but I reversed it into my submission finisher.

He broke out of it after 20 seconds of fighting. The ref pulled me off and Cena charged at me. I avoided the clothesline and jumped of the ropes to hit the lionsault. 1…….2…………………………..3!

The whole arena was screaming my name. I couldn’t move for a second. Life stopped. For years on end, my dream was to become the WWE Champion like many other small wrestlers before me.

 

I realized my dream. Through adversity, I pushed through. In times of sickness or injury, I worked 1000% harder to get back.

On this day, I lived my dream.

Thanks for taking the time to read my story. I realize it was pretty long. This was my first shot at fiction. I would love your feedback and I would appreciate any comments that I receive. Have a great day everyone!

WWE’s 13 Years of Decadence: 13 Things To Love about Edge

image

Almost 13 years ago, The Rated R Superstar made his distinct WWE debutOne of the best Superstars in WWE History, Edge began as a mysterious character that entered the arena through the crowd. Edge was infamous for roaming through the streets and attacking pedestrians for no apparent reason.

Despite our opinions, Edge was one of the biggest stars of the last decade.

An 11-time World Champion, Edge has become one of the greatest champions in WWE History. His premature retirement has left a huge effect on the WWE as a whole. If Edge were still wrestling today, the entire SmackDown landscape would be exceptionally different.

Although I’m a huge Edge Head, I refrained from releasing tribute article months ago.

Instead, I decided to write an article remembering his controversial, yet entertaining career. The reason this is 13 slides is to commemorate the number of years Edge was an employee for the WWE.

Enough of my small talk, here’s the show.

Improvised with Age

Multi_display_image

During the earlier portion of his career, Edge’s persona wasflamboyant. Edge’s attire was noticeably more outlandish and inserted more style. The colors wereloud and hardly unnoticeable by the live audience. Copeland almost always wore a pair of colorful shades.

His normal attire was somewhat similar to the style of John Morrison when he initially began utilizing the persona on ECW in 2006.

Edge was somewhat of a Californiansurfer type of wrestler.  Most of his promos included the word awesome.His character was comedic genius who utilized his charisma to pump the crowd.  After his face turn in 2001, Edge was a staple to WWE television.

After the end of the Invasion angle, Edge was moved to SmackDown and added a littleedge to his character. He adopted Rob Zombies “Never Going Stop” over the infamous“On the Edge. Edge’s neck injury halted his impending ascension to the top of WWE SmackDown.

When Edge returned in 2004, the familiar slim build of the Superstar was a thing of the past.  Edge’s happy-go attitude had almost completely disappeared. Around this time, he abandoned the aerial style of his past and began utilizing a more aggressive in-ring style.

After his heel turn, Edge adopted Alter Bridge’s Metalingus and became the perfect bad guy.

A crazed heel obsessed with capturing the crown jewel of the WWE.

The World Heavyweight Championship

WrestleMania 21 was a focal point in Edge’s career. The Superstar grasped the Money in the Bank briefcase. The controversy with Matt Hardy and Lita made Edge the top heel in the WWE. Around this time, Edge added numerous tattoos and began utilizing his Rated R Superstar gimmick.

His flamboyant style was completely gone as Edge altered everything, including his in-ring attire.

The gimmick was pure gold.

Ring Psychology and Timing

Timing_display_image

Triple H, one of Edge’s distant rivals, is noted for this dirty tactics and opportunistic ways in his on-screen rivalries. The opportunistic ways of Edge could very well rival those of The Game. Perhaps one of the more (kayfabe) intelligent individuals on the WWE Roster, Edge was the definition of right place at the right time.

As a two-time Mr. Money in the Bank, Edge, perhaps more than any other, cashed in on his opponent when they were at their weakest. An Elimination Chamber near crucified WWE Champion John Cena. Multiple battles with Batista and a thrashing from Mark Henry left Undertaker easy pickings for Edge.

In a similar incident, Edge goaded Mr. Kennedy into a match for Ken’s Money in the Bank. Before Kennedy could enter the ring, Edge attacked him, infuriating Ken enough to have him agree to the match.

With the addition of Vickie Guerrero, Edge opportunistic ways became a staple to SmackDown programming. A notable example would be the 2008 Survivor Series matchup involving Triple H and Vladimir Kozlov.

Edge is also one of the most underrated in-ring psychologist of this generation.

The manner in which Edge could counter the moves of John Cena or Undertaker was poetry in motion. It seemed as if Edge was already prepared for the things to come when facing a formidable foe. Edge could be on the receiving end of a devastating beating to win it all with the swiftness of a spear.

Just watch his match with Mick Foley at WrestleMania 22.

Mind Games

Pb2_display_image

While slightly behind The Undertaker, Edge is known for the numerous tricks he played for comic relief or to gain a victory. Who can forget the mind games Edge played on Kurt Angle in 2002. From the start of the, you suckchants to the pictures of Angle backstage on SmackDown.

In 2010, Edge reanimated his comedic mind games on Kane. The Big Red Monster cost Edge a match on SmackDown and Edge retaliated by kidnapping Paul Bearer. The first of numerous backstage angles that would tease Bearer’s death, Edge tricked Kane into emotional insanity. Without Paul Bearer, it was if Kane had lost the will to continue.

In addition to the fake deaths, Edge would sometimes torture Bearer backstage much to Kane’s dismay.

The mind games eventually led to Kane harming Bearer himself. With Paul out of the picture, Edge won his 10th World Title at WWE TLC 2010.

The Heel mind games were a different story.

Edge would assault family members and utilize others to trick opponents. Who can forget the time Edge slapped John Cena’s father before their Summerslam match. The Major Broski’s were also a part of Edge’s psychological advantage.

Because of the similarities in appearance, Edge’s opponents easily mistook Zack and Curt for Edge himself. This led to Edge regaining the World Title at Armageddon 2007.

Lita

El_display_image

While Edge’s heel turn in 2004 was successful, it was the addition of Lita that made Edge a main event heel. Lita had been a face for almost six years when she turned on Kane in the Gold Rush Tournament. In what would become a trend, Lita assisted Edge in gaining a win with his signature briefcase.

Just imagine if Lita wouldn’t have become a staple to Edge’s character.

While Edge was a great heel, Lita was the proverbial gas on the fire.

Their real life affair sparked outrage among the WWE Fans. Lita was previously in a relationship with fan favorite, Matt Hardy. Hardy and Edge were said to be best friendswhen Edge began his affair with Lita. The fact that Hardy was released because of it bestowed tremendous amounts of heat on Edge and Lita.

The feud that came after cemented Edge’s status as RAW’s Top Heel.

Edge shipped Hardy off to SmackDown after defeating him in a ladder match. Afterwards, Edge suffered an injury but to retain the superstar status of his character, Edge was given the Cutting Edge. He and Lita trashed almost everyone on the RAW roster including Ric Flair and Michael Hayes.

What a dastardly duo.

TLC

Tables, Ladders and Chairs have become Edge’s signature match. There have been 11 TLC matches in WWE History.  Edge has been involved in seven of those matches. Surprisingly, Edge has only lost twice in TLC matches. The first occasions being in a multiple tag team match against Chris Benoit and Chris Jericho.

The second was in a singles match with John Cena.

TLC is known as the match we witness the absolute best of Edge. It’s no secret that Edge becomes a human highlight reel when he’s involved in this match. From body splashes off ladders through tables to receiving an F-U off a ladder through two tables, Edge takes his craft to another level.

The first TLC match at SummerSlam 2000 forever revolutionized the word hardcore in the WWE. The mere fact that it was over the WWE Tag Team Championship illustrates how important tag teams were back then.

The last time a TLC match occurred, Edge won his 10th World Title in it.

The WWE even took this gimmick match and made it a full fledged pay-per-view.

That’s awesome.

Christian

Enc_display_image

The debut of Christian mimicked that of Kane. It was an angle where the unknown storyline brother cost the other their match. While Kane’s debut is more infamous and displayed the immediate impact of Kane, Christian’s debut is not one to look over. Christian distracted Edge during a match with Owen Hart.

Captain Charisma joined Gangrel as an on screen vampire.

Here, we are thinking Edge was a maniac for attacking innocent pedestrians, his undead brother who has allied himself with Gangrel. They convinced Edge to join the Brood, but the angle was short lived. Edge and Christian parted ways with Gangrel and began their successful run as a tag team.

Winning numerous tag team titles along the way, Edge and Christian met their end with the jealousy of one brother.

The first opportunity he received, Christian turned on Edge. Jealous because Edge won the 2001 King of the Ring, Christian turned on Edge and joined the Alliance. The two feuded over the Intercontinental Championship with Edge eventually arising from the smoke as the victor.

Like Undertaker and Kane, many believe Christian has spent the better part of his WWE career in Edge’s shadow. If this question was asked to Christian himself, he would smile and say “never”.

Each man did go down separate paths and for the majority of time, weren’t featured on the same brand.

Edge and Christian reunited earlier this year. With an assist by Edge, Christian won his first World Championship.

The length of the reign and the events leading to it can be disputed but the moment was pure magic.

Vickie Guerrero and La Familia

Lafam_display_image

As much as the addition of Lita assisted Edge’s career, the relationship with Vickie Guerrero benefited Edge’s career just as much. The SmackDown GM aided the Rated R Superstar in winning six of his 11 World Titles. Edge became SmackDown’s top heel because of the relationship and led to his opportunistic ways.

If it wasn’t for Guerrero, Undertaker, Rey Mysterio and Batista would’ve defeated Edge for the World Championship on numerous occasions.

During his feud with Undertaker in 2007, Edge formed a stable with the Majors, Chavo Guerrero, Vickie and Bam Neely.

Known as La Familia, the group also aided Edge in retaining the World Championship. Edge wasn’t the only beneficiary of the groups’ efforts. Edge assisted Chavo in winning the ECW Championship by spearing CM Punk.

Despite the small notoriety, La Familia had a huge impact on the SmackDown landscape.

If Guerrero abusing her power wasn’t enough, the stable assisted Edge in banishing the Undertaker from the WWE with a TLC Match. The group eventually faded away with Edge attacking Chavo and Vickie after Triple H exposed his adultery.

Vickie and Edge remained a couple until Guerrero quit her position as General Manager. Edge divorced Vickie shortly after but their paths crossed again in 2011. Despite her efforts, Vickie was unable to permanently take the World Title off of the Rated R Superstar.

Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler lost their jobs trying.

Rivalry with Edge

Cenedge_display_image

This is the feud that cemented Edge’s status as a main event talent. While the Ultimate Opportunist flourished on SmackDown, the title originally came about during this feud. This feud didn’t benefit Edge alone. If you didn’t consider Cena the face of the WWE before this rivalry, you did when it was over.

As a huge Edge head, I felt foolish to ignore any of his various feuds. A person of Edge’s heel persona is to draw emotion from fans such as anger and shock. When Edge cashed his MITB on John Cena in 2006, I was infuriated. Then I thought to myself, perfect.

That’s what made the Cena/Edge feud great. It’s ability to draw the emotion of its viewers. Along with the many surprises, crowd reaction and outside factors involved.  The rivalry was simply “history.” Take a look at the first that came from Cena/Edge.

It was the first MITB cash in. Edges first reign as the WWE Champion.  The first time it seemed like someone else had the attention besides Cena. Besides benefiting Edge, the rivalry gave a different view of Cena from a fan’s standpoint.

He was human simply. Cena was riding an awesome wave of momentum those 200-plus days as the WWE Champion.  He beat every single person there was to beat excluding Triple H. While it wasn’t a problem with me, fans like change. One guy holding and defending the belt countless times can’t be entertaining.

Their feud in 2009 was also noteworthy.

No Way Out

Edge just lost his WWE Championship in an Elimination Chamber. Well establishing himself as the “Ultimate Opportunist” since his exit from RAW, Edge attacked Kofi Kingston and stole his place in the match. Problem is that the match was for Cena’s World Championship.

Once again, shocked we were. Edge endured adversity through the match but pinned Cena then Mysterio to win the World Title. Who would’ve guessed Cena would lose the title under those circumstances? Not me.

Though Cena would win it back at WrestleMania 25, he lost it to Edge at Backlash thanks to Big Show.

Like I said above, Edge made Cena seem human. He ended the talk of John Cena being unbeatable. Edge had the mental advantage over Cena each time excluding Backlash 2009. Also unlike usual Cena matches, we weren’t exactly sure if he would beat Edge or not.

Nowadays it’s elementary to predict a Cena victory.

Besides all of that, this feud has it ALL. Quoting Cena himself the feud had wives, girlfriends and managers, lacky’s, his dad, Edge’s hometown, Cena’s hometown, Elimination Chambers, TLC Matches, briefcases, history, championships and WrestleMania.

Name one feud to accompany that many factors?

Popularity

Doa_display_image

There’s not too many WWE Superstars who can claim they’re more popular than Edge. Whether it’s the heat or cheers of the crowd, when the words you think you know me rang throughout an arena, they know they’re in for a show.

How many WWE Superstars can turn face over the course of one week?

The mere fact that Edge did so by destroying a meaningless prop stemming from the lack of angles from WWE Creative illustrates the popularity of Edge. Another notion to Edge’s popularity is the WWE Draft being moved up two months.

The decline in SmackDown ratings is also substantial at this point.

Edge isn’t the only Superstar noteworthy for their popularity, but the Rated R Superstar is certainly a dime of dozen.

Reliable Worker

Ca_display_image

Perhaps more than any main eventer on the WWE Roster, Edge was seemingly the mellowest Superstar. How many times has Edge lost a championship shortly after winning it? His first title reign ended at three weeks. Did the dirt sheets ever report Edge being furious about the length of it?

No

Even the label of transitional can be placed on the head of Edge. Along with that, none of his World Titles have gone over the length of four months.

Edge is known to put over other Superstars. Maybe not as much as Chris Jericho but Edge has never once left the WWE since joining. The Superstar wanted to lose his final match against his best friend Christian.

How admirable is that?

I’m also positive that Edge would be chasing World Heavyweight Champion, Alberto Del Rio, had he not retired months ago.

Tag Team Pioneer

When witnessing the state of the current WWE Tag Team Division, it’s great to relive the teams of the past. When the thought of the tag team titles and the great matches contested for them, Edge must appear in your train of thought somewhere.  As a 14-time tag team Champion, Edge has contributed to the success of the Division in a huge way.

The numerous matches/angles that involved Edge and what it meant to the Division as a whole are tremendous.

From the level of Edge’s tag team partners, it’s obvious that Edge was definitely a legendary tag team wrestler.  His partners were Hulk Hogan, Christian, Randy Orton, Chris Benoit, Rey Mysterio and Chris Jericho. Each man a great tag team wrestler in their own right but there is one thing each has in common with Edge.

They’ve held a World Championship at one point.

The rub Hogan gave Edge and the run as tag champions with Orton before they became full-time main eventers.

When Triple H and Shawn Michaels are taking on Edge and Randy Orton for the tag titles, the Division apparently means something.

WrestleMania

I don’t know if I’m alone here, but I’ve enjoyed each of Edge’s WrestleMania matches. When the thought of WrestleMania arises, most fans look forward to who’s going to face Undertaker at WrestleMania. Most may not know this, but before losing to Undertaker at WrestleMania 24, Edge was undefeated in singles competition.

The Rated R Superstar was 5-0 until the Deadman silenced Edge with the Hell’s Gate.

I also consider the match to be one of the most underrated in WrestleMania history. In my opinion, it was better than Shawn Michaels vs. Ric Flair despite being overshadowed by it.

From TLC II at WrestleMania X-Seven to his last match at WrestleMania 27 with Del Rio, Edge has a great track record for match quality at Mania.

The Greatest Champion EVER: Done it ALL won it ALL

Done_display_image

The Rated R Superstar has won 31 championships throughout his 13-year career. With the numerous titles available in the WWE at the moment, it’s seemingly impossible to win each right?

No

Besides Kurt Angle, Edge is the only Superstar to win every title currently available in the WWE. Edge is a seven-time World Champion, four-time WWE Champion, five-time Intercontinental Champion, United States Champion, 12-time World Tag Team Champion and two-time WWE Tag Team Champion. He also won the 2010 Royal Rumble. He is also the first man to hold the Money in the Bank briefcase on two occasions.

What hasn’t this guy achieved in the WWE?

End

Edgea_display_image

This was my tribute for one of the greatest Superstars in WWE history. I truly miss watching Edge spearing another wrestler out of his boots. The WWE just isn’t the same with the Rated R Superstar.

I welcome all opinions and comments.
