    WC's Fave Five EDGE Matches!!



    You know him as the Rated-R Superstar, the face of WWE Smackdown, the million time World Heavyweight Champion, and for the benefit of those with flash photography, that grizzled old viking that came parading back into WWE at the 2020 Royal Rumble. And though he may not be your first choice for this series, celebrating his return seemed like as good a place as any to start with this bold new entry in the Fave Five Cinematic Universe coming from the mod who barely watches wrestling and is ill-qualified to do this!


    For those of you who don't know how this works, you'll PM me your top five Edge matches ranked from first to fifth, I'll assign them points based on how they were ranked, and this very thread will showcase a countdown of his best and brightest matches. For the sake of making my job easier, please give me an exact date for any non-PPV matches, as something like (Edge vs. Hornswoggle, Raw 2008) gives me a bit of homework to do and also leaves the door open for misinterpretation.

    (As a little bonus, I'm gonna channel a little Johnny Ace and give the power to the people for the next wrestler in this series. When you send me your Edge ballots, toss in a top three list at the bottom of wrestlers you want to see a fave five for. These votes won't be ranked so don't worry about order, I'll just be tallying the most popular names submitted! Any wrestler, any company, any time period will do, this is not intended to be a WWE-only series, even though this fella really only has a body of work in that company. Don't send me episodes of Haven!)

    Simple enough? I think a week oughta be plenty, so I'd like to get all your lists in by February 19th at 11:59 PM EST. If you have any questions, ask away in here, or pester me in PM, hell if I care.

    Awesome! I'm really looking forward to seeing how this goes. I'll definitely do a list tomorrow.

    Re: WC's Fave Five EDGE Matches!!

    I think it's pretty interesting and telling that I cannot think of a one on one non-gimmick match that would even come close to this. Maybe the Undertaker match from Wrestlemania but I've always felt a little lower on that match than others, so I can't see it being on my list.

    This is a great idea of a series of threads on the site. I'll definitely be sending in a list, but may rewatch some Edge matches this weekend as research.

    Most of my picks will be tag matches. As much as I don't like Edge, he has a ton of great tag matches under his belt

    Re: WC's Fave Five EDGE Matches!!

    I'm pulling for the Matt Hardy match from Unforgiven 2005. Easily the best singles match of his career, and is one of the few matches that Edge isn't one of about six guys that make the match great (eg elimination Chambers and tlc matches) or clearly the worst worker in the match (eg any Smackdown Six era matches).

    Re: WC's Fave Five EDGE Matches!!

    There’s one match in particular of his that I’ve seen live that remains my favorite match of his, it was from a Smackdown. I’ll have to include one of his TLC matches and his stuff with Cena as well.

    Unforgiven 06 with Cena and Vengeance 06 with Van Dam are two of my faves, but that's just bias from me committing to wrestling during that year.

    I can see that ended up high. Although I think the Foley match is his best singles match. Certainly one of his more famous matches.

    Eh, he was better than Chavo, both in talent and worth. Beyond that, yeah, he wasn't better than the four main stars in their matches together.

    Re: WC's Fave Five EDGE Matches!!

    It's funny, I like Edge as a performer and think he sometimes gets some grief he doesn't really deserve, but I'm struggling to think of many matches that aren't tags, aren't multi-man, or where he's not the second most important/talented person in the match. It's like he's an NPC. His purpose is to the the other guy in whatever story you're telling. He's one of the best in that particular role, but it's hard to think of great "Edge matches", rather than "great matches that Edge is also in".

    The Hardy cage match really should be #1 with a bullet. When we did the WWE 2000s match poll years ago I'm sure that made my Top 5.

    I included three of his best PPV battles (imo) and two gems from SmackDown 2009 (my personal favorite year of SmackDown)

    Didn't include any tag / multi person matches

    Done an early shortlist, and gotta agree with the majority. Trying to keep too many multi-man matches from getting on, but boy is that where he's had his best matches

    I have only just realised that the collections aren't a thing anymore on the network because I figured an Edge collection would be a quick way to check up big matches.

    It came to my attention that my inbox filled up at some point last night. I have since cleared out plenty of space so apologies if your list was cock-blocked and feel free to send it my way now.

    Sometimes the WWE Network will throw up a collection on the home page, but there's no telling how long it will last. I'm pretty sure there was a Rated RKO collection after Orton turned on Edge. It may be because edge can be a common word, but the search function is pretty trash when you look up 'Edge'. Even in the match category, you have to hit the arrow button a few times to get to all Edge matches instead of random NXT matches being up first.
