Who is Edge

Edge is a professional wrestling legend who wrestled in multiple professional wrestling promotions, especially in WWE, which made him one of the industry’s biggest stars. He is a former eleven-time WWE World Champion and has other significant accomplishments. He is also a WWE Hall of Famer.

Edge WWE Debut

Most people know Edge made his WWE debut in 1998, but that was the half-truth. Edge made his WWE debut in 1996, but he was not under contract with the promotion during the time, and it was not a televised appearance either. In 1998, he debuted against Puerto Rican wrestler Jose Estrada Jr. in an episode of R.A.W. and picked up a count-out victory in this match.

Professional Wrestling Career

Wrestling Debut – Early Days

Copeland started his professional wrestling career in 1992. After working on some independent circuit promotions, he came to WWE in 1996, but he remained out of contract and worked in some non-televised matches. It is reported that he earned only $210 a week from WWE.

Debut in WWE

His official debut did not take place until 1998. His first match was against Puerto Rican professional wrestler Jose Estrada Jr., in which he earned a count-out victory. He worked as a solo star before teaming up with Gangrel and Christian. The trio was famously known as the Brood.

The Brood

Later, the Brood became a member of the Ministry of Darkness faction led by the Undertaker. The Ministry of Darkness was an excellent pitch, just not executed well. WWE did not have anything planned for Gangrel, but they had big plans for Edge and Christian. Together, they started a tag team, and it is believed that it was one of the best tag teams in the history of professional wrestling.

Edge & Christian

Edge and Christian won multiple Tag Team championships and were highly famous among wrestling fans. Meanwhile, WWE tried to push Edge as a singles star now and then. In 2001, he went on to win the King of the Ring tournament. But the singles push was not working very well during the time.

Various Tag Team Works

In 2002, he had a dream pairing with Hulk Hogan, and together they even got to win the WWE Tag Team Championship once. The same year, he teamed up with Rey Mysterio after getting drafted to Smackdown on the first-ever WWE Draft. The fans loved his teamed up with Rey Mysterio, and together, they won the Tag Team titles, too.

Heel Turn

In 2004, he transitioned to WWE RAW, and soon after getting red to the red brand of WWE, he turned heel, and this was the first time he was working as a heel as a singles star. He was doing a fantastic job as a heel. WWE had main event plans for him during this time, and he received big pushes from many big names.

Inaugural Money in the Bank and First WWE Championship Win

At WrestleMania 21, he went on to win the first-ever Money in the Bank ladder match. He carried it for over seven months and kept on doing the heel work. He finally cashed it in at the New Year’s Revolution event of 2006 after John Cena successfully defended his WWE Championship inside the Elimination Chamber. This was also his first WWE championship win.

Main Event Promotion and Future Success

Feud with Mick Foley

But soon after winning the WWE title, he dropped it back to John Cena. After dropping the title, he had a fantastic feud with Mick Foley, and at WrestleMania 22, he had a brutal Hardcore match with The Hardcore Legend. It is still considered one of the most brutal Hardcore matches in WWE history. Copeland managed to pick up a victory over Mick Foley in this match.

More World Championship Success

He went on to win his second WWE Championship in July of the same year. He defeated Rob Van Dam, who won the title from John Cena at E.C.W. One Night Stand. Next, he turned his attention to the World Heavyweight Championship. In 2007, he took the Money in the Bank contract away from Mr. Kennedy and cashed it on the Undertaker to win the title.
We must not forget that he is a former 11 times WWE World Champion, and among these 11 World titles, he won the World Heavyweight Championship seven times in total, which is still a record. It could never be broken since the title has now been unified with the original WWE Championship back in 2013. So, this record will always be intact.

First WrestleMania Main Event

He had been a prolific World Heavyweight Champion, and at WrestleMania 24, he defended the title against the Undertaker in the show’s main event. It was his first WrestleMania main event, and he did a fantastic job. It still felt like he almost defeated the Undertaker at the event. But this was not his last World Heavyweight Championship reign. He was starting.

Next WWE Championship Win

He won his next WWE Championship in 2008 when he participated in a triple threat match, including Vladimir Kozlov and Triple H. But he dropped to the title on the next PPV event, Armageddon. He won the title again at Royal Rumble 2009 to drop it at No Way Out. She could never win the WWE championship again.

First Retirement

In early 2011, the unfortunate news aired when he publicly announced his retirement. It was heartbreaking for the wrestling world since he was in his prime and had a lot more to offer. The wrestling world started to seem incomplete without The Ultimate Opportunist.


But in 2020, he made his in-ring return to WWE during that year’s men’s Royal Rumble match. The wrestling world was utterly shocked by this return. It was a dream come actual moment. Upon returning, he feuded with his former Tag Team partner, Randy Orton. Overall, it was a pretty fun feud.

Royal Rumble Win and WrestleMania 37 Main Event

In 2021, he won the Royal Rumble match by entering no. 1. It was his second Royal Rumble win since 2010, and he is considered one of the best Royal Rumble matches in WWE history. He got the opportunity to challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal championship at the main event of WrestleMania 37.

The Judgment Day

He did challenge Roman Reigns, but he lost. It was a triple-threat match, which also included Daniel Bryan. After WrestleMania 38, where he defeated AJ Styles, he formed a faction called the Judgement Day. But his people betrayed him a couple of months after starting the section.

Final Days

Soon, he started a feud with the faction until WrestleMania 39, where he defeated the faction’s leader, Finn Balor, inside Hell in a Cell. Recently, he had his last match against real-life good friend Sheamus. There are rumors that he is now out of contract from WWE and just wrestled his previous game. There is no news if he would work in the ring ever again. He will always be remembered as one of the best wrestlers in professional wrestling history.

Iconic Quotes from Edge

“I got put through a ladder by Jeff Hardy at WrestleMania 23 and had bruises from the ladder rungs across my back, but I was back the next night. I did the hardcore match with Mick Foley at WrestleMania 22, went through a flaming table, and had thumbtacks in my back, but I was out there the next night. That mentality does get ingrained in you.”
“Generally, there’s a lot of ad-lib involved with live T.V. and things like that, whereas with acting in front of the camera, it was, if you screwed up a line, well, you’ve got another take, and you also had a script to be able to study, so it wasn’t all ad-lib and flying by the seat of your pants, which I like both aspects.”
“Chris Jericho and I were excited about teaming together, but we didn’t get to sink our teeth into what we could have done as a team. We wanted to throw it back to the glory days of Pat Patterson and Ray Stevens. We were committed, we were coming up with team moves, and all of the things were made to work.”
“I greatly appreciate that people would like to see me have one more match or comeback or, ‘Daniel Bryan got cleared, so why can’t you?’ I will never be cleared. Mine is a completely different injury. He had neck issues, but it wasn’t his neck issues that retired him. It was the concussion issues.”
, anymore. So now what? Maybe I’ll paint. Perhaps I’ll write another book. Yeah, I’ll try this acting thing and concentrate on it, get better at it, take classes, get coaching, and give it a shot.”
“That’s one of the things I always tried to do as champ. I would make you think I was going down if you saw me at house shows. If I was wrestling Kane, I could lose. I’m wrestling Batista; I could lose. I’m wrestling Big Show, Undertaker, you name it, I could lose.”
“Two friends and I decided to get tattoos of different animals. My one friend got a bulldog. My other friend got a bull, I think, and then I got a shark. Two years later, a cartoon called ‘Street Sharks,’ by luck, looked eerily reminiscent of my tattoo. It was identical.”

Notable Feuds and Rivalries of Edge

Throughout his professional wrestling career, Edge has gone through many big rivalries. One of his career’s most extensive, or possibly biggest rivals, is John Cena.
