Last April, then-world heavyweight champion Edge shocked the world by announcing his immediate retirement from the squared circle due to the severe status of his already injured neck.
Ironically enough, I wrote an article days prior that provided bold predictions for WrestleMania 28, with one being that Edge would wrestle his last match of his career on the grandest stage of them all in Miami. Never would I have thought we'd be seeing the end of a rated-R era come to a close so abruptly in the fashion that it did.
Nonetheless, it didn't take long for everyone watching at home to speculate the obvious from the moment Edge hung up his boots: He's a guaranteed WWE Hall of Famer.
When Edge was revealed as the newest member into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2012, this surely came as no shock to this viewer, as it was evident from the beginning that the Rated-R Superstar is without a doubt worthy of a spot among the immortals.
Although some may argue that it was too early to induct the Master Manipulator in the illustrious hall, I personally believe it's sooner the better while he's still fresh in the minds of the WWE Universe. Besides, Toronto hosting WrestleMania in coming years seems unlikely at this point, so inducting Edge sooner than expected looks to be the highlight of WrestleMania weekend.
