Edge began wrestling for the WWF in 1998. He was a solo wrestler who later would join Gangrel and Christian in forming The Brood.
Edge and Christian were the standouts in that group, and eventually broke away to work as a tag team.
Edge and Christian began a feud with The Hardy Boyz and together the two teams would reinvent the ladder match.
Edge and Christian were one of the most successful tag teams of the era, winning the championship seven times.
Edge eventually began a solo career where he also found success. As a singles wrestler, Edge was an 11-time world champion, five-time intercontinental champion, and one-time United States champion.
Edge was also a two-time Money in the Bank, King of the Ring, and a Royal Rumble winner.
Edge was one of the greatest singles wrestlers of his era.
Sadly, his career abruptly ended.
On April 11, 2011, Edge told the world on Raw he was retiring from the sport he loves.
Edge was diagnosed with cervical spine stenosis. This is a disease of the bones that cause the spinal column in his neck to become narrow due to bone degeneration.
This is a serious condition that will be with him for the rest of his life, and given the severity of the condition, he would never be cleared by doctors to wrestle again.
This year at WrestleMania, Edge will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Given his numerous accomplishments in the sport, it is really a no-brainer to have him inducted.
Personally, I would have waited until WrestleMania goes back to Canada and induct him there.
Edge was a great worker on the mic and I am looking forward to hear his acceptance speech at the Hall of Fame this year.
