Well well guys its rainy Wednesday and I am back with my Superstar of the week..... In WWE if ever there is a list of people who threw their bodies to wreckage and entertained fans, i think this person will be the first of them.... our superstar of the week is none other than the Rated - R superstar EDGE.......
He went from being a novice in Canada to being a multi time tag champ. he and Christian filled arenas with their innovative style used in TLC and went on to become the most decorated Tag Team in pro wrestling. Even as a singles wrestler he proved to be Championship material with winning numerous championships, aa record of 31 of them which truly is his greatness... here are some of his career highlights

He wrestled in independent circuits with a tag team known as Sex and Violence and later Thug Life.
He debuted in WWE in 1998 and was quickly placed in a feud with the Gangrel.
He, Gangrel and Christian Cage later formed a stable known as the Brood.
He won his first singles title, Intercontinental Title by defeating Jeff Jarett.
during this tym he and Christian feuded with Hardy Boyz and Dudley Boyz as they had many of the series of TLC matches.
They turned their persona into tweeners and used to give a very famous "Five Second Pose" before their matches.
He went on to win the KOTR 2001 and this made him Christian turn on Edge and made Edge into a singles competitor.
He was later drafted to Smackdown where he had an infamous feud with Kurt Angle that culminated into a Hair vs Hair match that Edge won.
He formed a tag team wid Rey Mysterio which had a classic match with Kurt and (CB- u knw whom i meant) which was voted the match of the year.

He suffered a legitimate neck injury which kept him out of action for almost a year.
He returned back to feud with HBK as he was upset that he didn't get a shot @ Triple H's WHC title.
he participated in his first EC match in 2004 but, was the first to be eliminated after HBK performed a super kick.
He won the inaugural MITB match @ WM21 which guaranteed him a title shot at anyplace anywhere of his choice.
He was then involved in a feud with Kane over his wife Lita whom Edge was romantically linked to (it was a real life incident too).
He cashed his MITB contract after the New Years Revolution EC match against the WWE Champ John Cena to win his first WWE title.
He then had major feuds with Mick Foley (WM), Cena and Triple H (Backlash) which gave a major lift to Edge's career.
He then joined forces with Randy Orton to feud with newly formed two man DX and beat them for Tag team titles.
He defeated Mr. Kennedy to win his second MITB and cashed it aginst The Undertaker to win his first WHC.
He suffered a torn pectoral muscle and hence vacated the title.
He made his return @ Survivor Series by interfering in a HIAC b/w Taker and Batista and later joined forces with Vickie Guerrero to form La Familia.
He then had notable feud with Triple H which led him to turn on La Familia and as a result was scheduled in HIAC with Undertaker @ SS which he lost.
After SS he took time off but made return @ Survivor Series as a replacement to Jeff Hardy and went on to defeat Triple H for his WWE title in a Triple Threat match that also involved Kozlov.
He suffered a torn Achilles Tendon which kept him out of action for an year.
He made a grand entry to RR 2009 and went on to win it and became only second person to win both KOTR and RR.

He was also involved in major storylines with Chris Jericho on SD and Orton on Raw.
He wrestled his last last match against ADR @ WM 26.
The next week on SD Edge announced his retirement cos of cervical spinal stenosis, which may further turn to paralysis.
He helped Christian win his first World title in a ladder match against ADR post retirement.

Edge was one of the most decorated performers in WWE and his accomplishments below are the ones to speak:

He is a 11 time World Champ ( 7 WHC & 4 WWE titles).
He is also 5 time IC and 1 US title.
He has won a record 14 tag titles (12 World tag titles & 2 WWE tag titles).
He is one of the two wrestlers to have held every single male title in WWE (the other being Kurt Angle).
He is the only second person to have won KOTR and RR (the other being Triple H).
He is the first and only person to have won KOTR, RR and MITB.
He is the first person to hold 2 MITB contracts (the other being CM Punk till date).
He is the only second person to have successfully defended WHC inside EC (the first being Triple H).
He is also sadly the first MITB winner to lose his title to another MITB holder.

By looking into all of hs achievements, its sad that he had to retire because of injuries. I hope his afterlife will be better... miss you EDGE...... we love you
