WWE News: Vince McMahon wishes Edge a happy birthday
What's the story?
On October 30, 2017, Vince McMahon took to Twitter in order to wish Edge, who turned 44, a happy birthday.
In case you didn't know...
After an in-ring career spanning almost 19 years, Edge retired from professional wrestling in 2011 after successfully defending the World Heavyweight Championship against Alberto Del Rio at WrestleMania 27. The Rated-R Superstar won a multitude of titles, including 11 World Championships, during his WWE run — which resulted in a Hall of Fame induction in 2012.
The heart of the matter
Ever since his retirement from professional wrestling, Edge has primarily focused on his acting career, securing a recurring role on Haven — a drama series loosely based on Stephen King's mystery The Colorado Kid.
He also had a show on the WWE Network with long-time friend Christian titled The Edge & Christian Show that Totally Reeks of Awesomeness. The former WWE Tag-Team Champions now host their own podcast, E & C's Pod of Awesomeness.
Edge and Christian still make sporadic appearances on WWE Television
Here is an excerpt from The Edge & Christian Show that Totally Reeks of Awesomeness:
While their characters were a little over-the-top, Edge and Christian were a very entertaining tag-team. The Rated-R Superstar also had a tremendous singles run; he was easily one of the best heels in WWE history. Superstars such as Triple H and Randy Orton were handed more opportunities, but they were simply never as good as Edge.
