Following tonight’s SmackDown taping at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, WWE held a ceremony honoring Edge.
Seven-time WWE Women’s Champion Trish Stratus kicked off “Edge Appreciation Night” by introducing “The Rated-R Superstar.” Photographs of Edge’s most memorable WWE moments aired on the big screen, including a video montage featuring comments from John Cena, Bret Hart, CM Punk, The Miz, Josh Mathews, Vickie Guerrero, Randy Orton and Jim Ross, among others. Edge broke into tears while the video aired.
Christian interrupted the festivities to say that he and Edge are closer than friends as they were like brothers. He adds that a great way to show appreciation for Edge is to bring out the people closest to him. Edge’s mom Judy appeared, as did his trainers Steve Hutchinson and Sweet Daddy Siki, former WWE Superstar Rhyno, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart and the WWE locker room.
Edge spoke and notably said to Hart, “Bret, you and Owen were the two I looked up to as Canadians.” The ceremony concluded with a five-second pose “for the benefit of those with flash photography.”
