The Wrestlemania edition.So for those of you that remember, Wrestlemania 27 featured Edge successfully defending the World Heavyweight Championship against Alberto Del Rio. This would mark his last match due to a previously known neck injury. Soon after this on Raw, Edge retired and vacated the world title. Here’s what I wonder:
What makes Edge so special? Why does he get to win his last match at Wrestlemania? Let’s look at some others who had their last (or presumably their last) match at Wrestlemania:
Steve Austin at Wrestlemania 19 – Pinned by Rock
Rock at Wrestlemania 20 (last match for eight years) – On the losing team
Ric Flair at Wrestlemania 24 – Pinned by Shawn Michaels
Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 26 – Pinned by Undertaker
What makes Edge so special that he gets to win? His career was over and he knew it, but they gave him the win anyway. Del Rio took months if not years to recover (arguably he never did) and it was all about Edge for the next several weeks.
Why does Edge get this special treatment?
