For Lack of System Error: Wrestling News

Man, this is a downer, Edge has been one of my favorite wrestlers in a long time.

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. (CAREER PHOTOS)

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 administered at Atlanta Midtown Diagnostic Imaging 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.

    Oh man! :(

    Edge was one of my favourites too.

    The brightside is that he went out while retaining his title.

    I'm going to miss Edge. He wasn't one of my favorites (I'm a Rey fan as most people, especially Mr. Error, know) but I respected what he did as a wrestler and I enjoyed watching him in the ring.

    Good luck with whatever you do now Edge.

    I know how you feel, he definitely was an entertainer, he had very few dry periods.

    Man all the guys in wrestling that I really like are either retired, barely hanging on or dead...

    But after all of those TLC and Hardcore matches, I'm not surprised about Edge's situation...

    Yeah, I know, but he did his job as an entertainer well. Good luck to him.
