So long Edge

Edge just SHOCKED the wrestling world as he has apparently had to hang 'em up for good.  If so, I'm proud to say I saw his last match when he retained the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXVII. 

The speech itself was heartfelt and reminded me quite a bit of Double A hanging them up for the same reason with the great Nature Boy tearfully standing beside his friend. 

It's funny too because I'm pretty sure the last time I did a top 10 favorite list, Edge was on it.  For years leading up to that he was the epitome of "What does WWE see in this guy?" Guy for me.

He actually won me over with his Rated-R Superstar persona which was based on a really unfortunate set of circumstances.

Anyhow, I ramble.  Thank you Edge.  Enjoy retirement and I'm glad you got out with your relative health.

Thanks again Edge.
