Here's an excerpt from a blog The "Hard core Icon" Mick Foley wrote about Edge...
"I donâ€™t know if there will ever be a consensus on who the best wrestler or worker of that era (call it 2003-2011, starting and ending with the neck injury) is or was. I once said I could make a good argument for Shawn Michaels - and I can. I think I could make a pretty good argument for Kurt Angle. Based on big money matches, some might say Triple H. For pure wrestling, maybe AJ Styles or Samoa Joe, or any number of Japanese stars who have flown beneath the mainstream radar.
But look at the other attributes that Edge brought to the table. A willingness to fully immerse himself in every storyline â€“ to make people believe, or at least to believe that he believed. He embraced the ridiculous. He loved the emotional. He thrived under pressure. He stood up for what he thought was best for his characters, his matches, his opponents, and the shows. As viewers, we knew that every segment he appeared in was going to be good. But more importantly, we knew that any segment with Edge had the potential be great. In baseball terms, he was a five-tool player; a guy who could do it all. There have been other five-tool players in the wrestling game â€“ guys who could wrestle, draw money, talk, create characters, be dramatic or comedic. But to me, he was the most versatile, and the most entertaining. So while there may be an argument over who the GREATEST WRESTLER was from 2003-2008, to me, there is no real argument over who was the eraâ€™s GREATEST PERFORMER. Hands down, it goes to Edge. What an incredible person. What an amazing career."
In all 110% honesty, I agree with Mick about Edge. He (Edge) was, and still is, arguably one of THE GREATEST wrestlers of that time period.
