Edge retires

very sudden move. Though he did hint at retiring for a while. Cant blame him for announcing it.

Hopefully this means perhaps a nice Christian run as World champ. The guy deserves it. Although I wouldnt mind seeing Delrio win it as well.

This probably has been building for some time. Good thing he got the MRI rather than try to tough it out. Though he probably had been heading into Mania.

I think nowdays only Punk can pull something like this off well. Jawing with the fans. Smarky commentary.

Smart decision by Edge. Good to know he's one of those wrestlers that doesn't try to push himself too hard when the signs are clear that his body can't take the punishment any longer.

And right on time, Hogan decides to weigh in and try to make the story all about him.

That's Hulk Being Hulk. You just expect him to be a douche on something like this. :)

The Gordy list was designed back when there were territories. "Was he the top draw on Smackdown" isn't quite the same thing.

It's easier to do a Black Ink test. Except you run out of black ink counting it all.

Well, when there was at least more than one promotion that meant a damn. :)
