Edge Retires...

Before I can touch on anything else, this piece of news needs to be talked about.

Heres the official release from
Less than a week after his successful title defense against Alberto Del Rio at WrestleMania XXVII, World Heavyweight Champion Edge has been forced to retire from in-ring competition due to injury. The unexpected news brings to an end a storied WWE career spanning 13 years and consisting of 11 World Title reigns.

The Rated-R Superstar had been suffering numbness and uncontrollable trembling in his arms and hands. This is not the first time Edge has experienced these symptoms of nueropraxia. An MRI in Atlanta last Monday was sent to Dr. Joseph Maroon, a renowned neurosurgeon and professor of neurosurgery at The Pittsburgh School of Medicine. After careful examination of the MRI, it was determined that Edge would never be cleared to compete again, and thus, he is forced to retire.

In 2003, Edge underwent a two level spinal fusion of the discs between his C5, C6 and C7 vertebrae. After being cleared to compete, The Rated-R Superstar returned to the ring, resulting in stenosis of the spine, or a narrowing of the spinal column, above and below the fused discs. This narrowing resulted in less and less of the vital fluid needed to protect the spinal cord. Medical professionals cannot clear Edge to compete ever again in WWE since doing so could result in paralysis or even death.

At any rate, his last official sendoff will be on Smackdown this Friday where he'll vacate his title.

Thanks for everything Edge.

Fourdown picks for Wrestlemania

In case you don't know about, its a site where you choose who you think is going to win at the ppv and get ranked against everyone else.  It just adds a whole nother level to the ppvs.  I guess its the closest you can get to gambling on wrestling. 

Now, usually, I can make pretty solid predictions.  But I'll be honest, for Wrestlmania, I just went straight for who I wanted to win.  I think it will be more fun that way.

So if you're interested check out and if you want to see my picks just check them out after the jump.  (lol, I've always wanted to use that)

Cena booed mercilessly Wrestlmania 27 press conference

Ill keep it short today because Im really sick.

Cena was booed so badly that you could barely hear what he was saying at the event. Apparently the footage of the press conference released by WWE was very heavily edited.

Heres an uncensored video of the press conference taken by a fan, as you can see: pretty brutal.

Does he deserve this, or is it just the fans responding to his stale gimmick?
