WWE: Edge was to put Christian over in final storyline?

  • What’s good to all my wrestling geeks out there. Im here with another Pro Wrestling Beat, cause the Beat goes and on dig it.


This Pro Wrestling beat gives us an insight on WWE Hall of Famer Edge, and his final storyline. As we all grew to love Edge (Adam Copeland) from his Brood days to infamous TLC matches there was one man always by his side, his on air brother and real life BFF Christian (William Reso).

In the height of Edge’s career, fate dealt a harsh blow. In 2011 Copland was forced to retire due to an neck injury. Following Wrestlemania 27, Edge with one year left on his contract and wanted to fulfill that obligation, unfortunately doctors said otherwise. This left speculation on what if Edge was able to compete after Mania.

Copland shed some light on the situation. Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Adam stated what the WWE originally had in stored for him.

“We did have a tentative plan to go forward once Alberto Del Rio and I were through our program. Christian would have cost me the title to Del Rio, and then we would have moved on and done our thing” Copeland added “I thought he would retire me at WrestleMania That’s how I wanted to go out. I wanted to do the favor, drop the title, and then have Christian be the cause – then spend the final few months of my career wrestling my lifelong best friend, and really have him go off in a great heel direction once I retired ”

So idea was for Edge to drop the title to Del Rio with aid of Christian, leading to a final fued between the two. If fans remember the on screen falling out they had due to Edge’s success. Edge wanted to go out putting his best friend over, cause we remember for a time Christian was bumped to the mid-card level while Edge was went on to win the WWE World Title 11 times.

Copeland wanted to to put Christian over as a major heel in their final matches possibly doing the favor (letting Christian win) to possibly thrust him into main event status and Edge could retire.


The idea was clearly scrapped as Edge retained the title over Del Rio at Wrestlemania 27. The following Monday on Raw, Edge announced his retirement. During the emotional speech Egde gave us the harsh reality of life as WWE wrestler even breaking kayfabe stating Christian was his best friend instead of brother (Which we already knew but still.) There’s was noting WWE could do nor Edge, explaining that doctors diagnosed him with Cervical Spinal Stenosis. If taken any more bumps the injury could be paralyzing, even fatal doctors stated. Edge finally dropped the title on the following episode of Smackdown.
