Saying goodbye to the “Rated R Superstar”

     On the latest episode of Monday Night RAW, my favorite pro wrestler, Edge, announced his early retirement. It made enough of a splash that Adam Copeland, Edge’s actual name, was a trending topic on Twitter. The masses were paying their dues to the decorated entertainer, who acquired more championships than any other superstar in WWE history.

Chris Jericho seen here in a Cincinnati showing of RAW, is a fellow Canadian superstar and sent out his thanks and condolences for Edge's retirement.

     Though throughout his career Edge was one of the best heels in the business (a “heel” is the term given to the “bad guys” of wrestling), he recieved a standing ovation and chants of “Thank you Edge!” While holding back tears and admitting that retiring was a lot harder than he thought it would be, Edge was quick to thank every fan out there who has cheered and booed him throughout his 19-year career.

     He recalled attending a Wrestlemania as a kid, and after being inspired by the theatrics and showmanship, decided he too would become a wrestler. He admitted that he would have never believed he would have achieved what he has over his career. Between headlining a Wrestlemania against the Undertaker to sharing one of the most iconic rivalries of all time against John Cena, Edge will soon get the nod into the WWE Hall of Fame, which he deserves undoubtedly.
