Edge was a multi-time World title winner ahead of his forced retirement

The “Rated-R superstar” holds a special place in the wrestling world because of his immense contribution. The 47-year-old, who performs on the SmackDown brand, has won 31 championship titles.

Out of these, 12 are from World Tag Team Championship titles. His most successful period was with his tag team partner, Christian. The duo won 7 titles together in a span reigning from 1999 to 2001.

The veteran wrestler held the World Heavyweight Championship a record seven times, the WWE Championship four times, the Intercontinental Championship five times, the US Championship once, and the WWE Tag team championship twice.

Because of several neck injuries, the wrestler had to retire from wrestling in the year 2011. WWE promptly inducted him into the Hall of Fame in 2012 for his lifelong contribution to wrestling.

Edge returned to action in 2020 in the Royal Rumble match. He became the first man to win the Royal Rumble in 2021 after being inducted into the Hall of Fame. His feat was marvelous, as he was the number one entrant.
