Following Tuesday night’s WWE 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 moments in WWE aired on the TitanTron, including a tribute video. Christian, however, interrupted the segment.
The SmackDown Superstar said he and Edge have always been like brothers, and that a great way to show appreciation is to bring out the people closest to him. Edge’s mom appeared, as did his trainers Steve Hutchinson and Sweet Daddy Siki, former WWE Superstar Rhyno, WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart, and the SmackDown! locker room.
The segment included a five-second pose “for the benefit of those with flash photography.”
