Neither did Rowdy Roddy Piper, although he always says that makes him better because he didn't need the World Title to get over.

So is Edge surrendering the title to Del Rio or what the hell is going to happen there?

I've barely watched since 2006 but that just seems nuts. He had like 2 or 3 last time I watched.

You don't think Eddie G and Benoit were main eventers, but you think Hall should have had a World title run? If those guys aren't main eventers he sure isn't. His gimmick far exceeded his in ring skills.

Who gives a shit about druggie Matt Lardy? He sucks and always did suck. Jeff carried his ass for years.

Eddie G, I'd say yeah but Benoit, was just boring. Had no personality, I can't think of one great interview this dude had. Hall was actually cool and decent in the ring (if not drunk.)

Chris didn't really need mic skills. Steamboat wasn't great on the mic either.

Benoit's World Title win over Triple H and HBK is one of the better WWE moments.

For those who are wondering, the Edge retirement speech was 100% legitimate and real. We were told by a company source earlier this evening that when the major announcement was made tonight, it was not an angle and not storyline.

The story that Edge told about medical tests coming back and showing there was a new issue with his neck and being advised he must retire is true. He was basically handed a mic and told to go out and say goodbye however he wanted.

WWE's website posted an article on Edge's retirement, noting that Edge had suffering numbness and uncontrollable trembling in his arms and hands of late, symptoms of nueropraxia, a nervous system disorder. Edge was experiencing similar issues when he underwent neck fusion surgery several years ago.

According to the WWE website, Edge underwent an MRI last Monday.

After the MRI was examined by WWE's Medical Director Dr. Joseph Maroon, Edge was diagnosed with stenosis of the spine, which in layman's terms, means his spinal cord was narrowing from the abuse he's taken since returning to the ring from his 2003 neck fusion surgery.

With the damage to his spinal cord, continued abuse of the neck from bumping could result in serious injury, including paralysis.

Mid carders don't need mic work, but main eventers do. I wanna be entertained by a main event (50/50 mic/ring work.) Mid card and undercard, it's mostly ring work, cause they rarely get on the mic.

In WCWm I loved Benoit and in WWF when he was a high mid card wrestler. When he started gettin main event pushes vs Austin and stuff, I'm like wtf!!

I hope Edge enjoy his retirement. He's one of the best pure wrestlers in the WWE history.

They pass the titles around like hot potatoes now, which devalues them. I miss the days when being the champ meant something.
