Following Tuesday’s WWE SmackDown tapings from Albany, New York, Edge came down to the ring one final time and did a “five second pose” with Christian in front of the live crowd. The entire WWE roster (including Triple H) came out from the back and paid tribute to the Rated R Superstar, who wrestled his final match at WrestleMania 27 and is being forced into retirement due to injury.
Edge gave a long farewell speech, thanking everyone he could think of – including Christian, Lita, Kane and Vickie Guerrero.
According to a few live reports that were sent in from fans who were at the show, Edge’s farewell address was emotional and classy.
A much-deserved “Hall of Fame” chant broke out, which Edge seemed to really appreciate.
WWE cameras were filming the farewell address, so that footage will likely be posted online this week or could even be used for a future WWE DVD release.
