Edge Talks Wwe Glory'S Journey From 'Kid With A Bad Mullet' To World Champion

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Edge had one of the most recognizable entrance theme songs early in his WWE career.

“You Think You Know Me” played to packed arenas and stadiums during live shows, tapings and pay-per-views and fans instantly knew who was coming to the ring.

On Sunday, the WWE Universe will get to know Edge a little better when his episode of “WWE Biography: Legends” premieres on A&E.

The 48-year-old’s journey to WWE (formerly known as the World Wrestling Federation) has been full of twists and turns.

He met his best friend, Jay Reso (known in pro wrestling as Christian), when he was around 10, and the two quickly bonded in pro wrestling and dream of stepping into the squared circle while growing up in Orangeville, Ontario, Canada. The two would watch their first event together at Maple Leafs Gardens in Toronto and later Edge would watch WrestleMania VI at the Toronto SkyDome.

At that moment, it clicked.

“It was all the things I love. I loved superheroes, I loved music, and I loved sports. So when I saw wrestling, it was all those things because these larger-than-life characters had colorful outfits that would be in the comics,” Edge, real name Adam Copeland, told Fox News Digital in a recent interview.

“They had entrance music and like pyro and stuff, so it’s a Kiss concert. And, they’re doing these things that I equate to a hockey game or a football game – just a athletic performance. He tapped into all the things my little kid brain loved. I never went out of the little kid brain.”

Edge’s career would be launched by chance.

He saw an advertisement in the Toronto Sun for an essay on “Why do I want to be a professional wrestler?” He wrote an epic tale about his dreams and goals and ultimately won the contest, earning the chance to train with professional wrestlers Sweet Daddy Siki and Ron Hutchinson.

When asked if he thought about the trial and how it launched his career, Edge told Fox News Digital he thinks about it “almost every day.”

“I understand that, for me, my life is great,” he said. “I did the one thing I always wanted to do, which was to be a wrestler, and I succeeded. I constantly sit down and reflect. And I think losing the career for nine years made her appreciate it even more and get her back.”

Bret Hart also had a big impact on Edge’s early career. Known as “The Hitman” within the wrestling ranks, the Calgary native appeared on Canadian talk show “The Dini Petty Show.” Edge happened to be at the taping and was able to get some great advice from Hart, who told him to pursue his dream.

“It was huge because he was WWF champion at the time. It was huge. And I considered him the best in the world, so for me to get that encouragement and also to understand that he couldn’t give me the answers to the test because there were no answers, and there really aren’t any answers,” he said. connect.”

Edge said the advice Hart gave him at the time helped him foster some parting wisdom in young guys who came to him for advice.

“I would never turn someone down, and I think a lot of that comes from following Bret’s lead and understanding that you’re an 18-year-old kid sitting in the crowd at the ‘Dini Petty Show’ with a bad mule and a biker jacket, and he found me. And finally, like a year, a year and a half, maybe two years later, I find myself at his house and I get in the ring with him. A lot of what’s happening is happening because Bret cares.”

Edge would hit the independent circuit and train with Hart, honing his in-ring skills and athleticism before making his WWE TV debut. He received a development contract in 1997 and debuted in 1998.

With a universe filled with guys like The Rock, Mankind, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Kane, The Undertaker and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, he came out as Edge and presented as a tortured soul. But why “Edge?”

“I actually invented Edge. I would have preferred Adam Copeland, but that wasn’t really how it worked then, was it? I was doing dark matches, and Don Callis and I were driving and the radio station , it was in Albany and it was ‘Edge 1-0-something’, and growing up in Toronto, Edge 102 was always one of my favorite stations,” he said.

“I was like, ‘Hmm, that’s got a little rock ‘n’ roll edge to it, Edge.’ They were throwing names like Rage, Riot, and you know it was the late 90s, right? I just thought, ‘Edge, I’m going to throw that over there.’ At least it’s something I could relate to a little better and it stuck.

Edge’s career would gain popularity when he teamed up with Gangrel and his lifelong friend, Christian, and they would become known as The Brood. After The Brood disbanded, Edge and Christian would have one of the most memorable tag team runs in WWE history.

Edge and Christian have won the World Tag Team Championship seven times. The two would feud with The Hardy Boyz and The Dudley Boyz and create some of the most iconic matches in pro wrestling history. Ladder matches and tables, ladders and chair matches were developed. In at least one place, Edge was jumping off a ladder and spearing Jeff Hardy who was dangling from the belt buckle several feet above the ring.

While success as a tag team and as a singles contender in the midcard was one thing, Edge didn’t have a real opportunity to pursue a WWE Championship until 2006. He was the first-ever Money in the Bank winner in the business. history and cashed it against John Cena at New Year’s Revolution.

Then known as the “Rated-R Superstar”, Edge would soar to the top of the company. He would become a seven-time World Heavyweight Champion and four-time WWE Champion at the peak of his career.

Serious injuries would put a hurdle on any further championship wins. Edge was diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis, fearing that a bump or jolt could cripple or even kill him. He will appear in limited on-screen roles between 2011 and 2019.

It wasn’t until 2020 that he was allowed to perform again. Edge made a shocking return to the Royal Rumble. It was the biggest pop of the night.

“I expected that we could keep it as secret as possible, so yeah, just for shock,” he told Fox News Digital when asked if he expected the wild reaction from the crowd.

“Because, like everyone else, I assumed it was done,” he said of how he felt about his wrestling career at the time. “So because of that I assumed there would be a pretty shocked response and then you do it in a stadium and chances are there’s a pretty good reaction. Even though I thought that, that still doesn’t really prepare you for every emotion that’s really rocking your system at that moment. I felt like I was struck by lightning in a good way.

Edge would later return as a regular and feud with Randy Orton, The Miz, and AJ Styles. He would be the leader of The Judgment Day faction before getting excited and starting his feud with the members of that group.

Edge’s episode airs at 8 p.m. ET on A&E.

Truck theft affects San Jose man’s family, business and volunteer efforts to help homeless

Truck Theft Affects San Jose Man'S Family, Business And Volunteer Efforts To Help Homeless

SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) — A San Jose resident father and local food pantry volunteer had his truck stolen outside his home recently.

Anthony Moore described his frustration to ABC7 News over the senseless theft of his green Chevy Silverado.

“It’s the second time they’ve stolen it in six months,” Moore explained. “I’m in trouble. I don’t have insurance, so if they burn or whatever, it’s done.”

More than transportation, he relies on the truck for his catering business, uses it to take his daughter to school, and in his spare time Moore donates his vehicle to help those in need.

Pastor Ralph Olmos of Lighthouse Food Rescue and Distribution in the city’s Northside neighborhood described, “We try to find all the resources we can to try to get the job done, and often those are our own cars.

Moore used his truck to help transport food for the nonprofit and even towed equipment used in larger efforts to feed the ever-growing homeless population.

As demand for homeless help has skyrocketed during the pandemic, Pastor Olmos said the theft of Moore’s truck could impact business.

“It hurts us because it affects the flow of food here,” Pastor Olmos said. “When a car is missing, a load is not picked up. It affects how this place works because we are a bit different than most distros, being a free farmer’s market.”

On Tuesday, we found Moore working on the front door of the lighthouse. He lives within walking distance.

“The gate is kind of a critical position because that’s where you actually meet us,” Pastor Olmos told ABC7 News. “You can actually interact with us and I think Anthony’s place here kind of grew in the neighborhood. He’s had a really powerful effect on the people here because everybody knows everybody. world here in the Northside.”

A few days earlier, surveillance cameras had captured what appeared to be a white SUV driving through the area. Moore and other residents believe it’s related to the Friday morning robbery.

Moore said additional footage showed the SUV pulling up near his truck around 1:15 a.m.

He said two minutes later, “You see my brake lights come back on, then you see them go off.”

Moore said he filed a police report.

He said he was able to get his truck back months ago, after seeing it driving through town.

Now, the man who dedicates his time to his children and his community needs extra help himself, just to make ends meet.

“I don’t know what it is with these trucks, but it has to stop,” he said. “I can’t take it. I mean, I’m on point right now – I probably don’t have enough to pay my rent because that’s what I use to do the restoration.”

Pastor Olmos added: “Taking his truck, it doesn’t make sense. Because this guy, he’s a father, he takes his children to school, and he comes here right after and picks up loads. So , it doesn’t really make sense to hurt a person like that.”

EXCLUSIVE: Suspected thief leaves flyers on SF cars asking for money so they can stop ‘stealing’

Moore said his green Chevy Silverado 4×4 had black rims. He described it as an old Fish and Game truck with holes in the roof where the antennas were.

The first time the truck was taken, it lost catering equipment, awnings and fillet knives, which totaled a loss of items worth $400-500.

When he retrieved the truck, he added a club for safety.

This time around the truck stored a barbecue flag, steaks and earflaps.

If the truck is returned, he plans to have an alarm and a circuit breaker installed.

Moore shared a link to an online campaign to help cut costs. Go here to help you.

The case against Notre Dame football betting in 2022

The Case Against Notre Dame Football Betting In 2022

College Football Betting Overview Schedule

Thursday: Betting on Alabama
Friday: Ohio State Betting
Saturday: Paris Georgia
Monday: Paris Clemson
Tuesday: LSU Betting

Bet: Notre Dame Under 9 wins (-105)

Best case: The Irish have a ton of positivity coming into this 2022 campaign after just missing out on the college football playoffs (they finished fifth in the standings) last season. They’re returning 15 starters, and the players are loving new head coach Marcus Freeman, who previously served as defensive coordinator under Brian Kelly. Freeman’s first game as head coach came at the Fiesta Bowl, where the Golden Domers took a 28-7 lead before falling to Oklahoma State. Now that he has a full offseason, Freeman should be fine with a program that faces only a few really tough games: at Ohio State and USC and at home against Clemson.

Worst case: Kelly may have acted like a clown with the mic and his fake southern accent, but the guy doesn’t mess with the headphones. He has won 40 of his last 41 games when Notre Dame has been favored. Sure, he may not have covered the point spread, but when he had the better team, the Irish won outright. It’s the sign of a very good coach, while the verdict has always fallen on the 36-year-old Freeman. Will Freeman make sure the Irish run their business against mediocre opponents like Cal, BYU, Stanford and Boston College? He needs it because he will be outdone by elite coaches and players at Ohio State, Clemson and USC.

Betting round: The Irish have won double digits for five consecutive years, and now we need them to hit the maximum eight to cash in on that bet? I’m taking a small leap here, but losing a top coach like Kelly should have a significant impact. He won at every stage throughout his three-decade head coaching career. I just can’t ignore this sustained success with a rookie now taking the reins. It takes more than 10 wins to lose this bet, so I like my chances of pushing or cashing in.

Adam Kinzinger warns that some Christians are now ‘equating Donald Trump with the person of Jesus Christ,’ calls on pastors who support Trumpism

Adam Kinzinger Warns That Some Christians Are Now 'Equating Donald Trump With The Person Of Jesus Christ,' Calls On Pastors Who Support Trumpism

Rep. Adam Kinzinger slammed pastors for failing to speak out against Trumpism.Alex Wong/Getty Images

  • Rep. Adam Kinzinger said some Christians in the United States equate Donald Trump with Jesus Christ.

  • In an interview with MSNBC, he also criticized pastors who spread Trumpism from the pulpit.

  • The GOP congressman also warned of political tribalism that has blurred voters’ moral boundaries.

GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois said on Tuesday that some Christian circles in the United States equate former President Donald Trump with Jesus Christ, warning of “tribalistic” behavior that has led voters to “accept anything” to stay within their communities.

During an interview with MSNBC’s Alex Wagner, Kinzinger said many pastors in America have “disappointed their congregation” either by preaching Trumpism “from the pulpit” or refusing to talk about the “corrosion” of the ideology.

“And you have people today who, literally, I think in their hearts – they may not say it – but they equate Donald Trump with the person of Jesus Christ,” added Kinzinger, who identifies himself. as a Christian. “And for them, if you’re speaking out against even this ‘amazing man Donald Trump,’ who obviously is pretty flawed, you’re speaking out against Jesus, against their Christian values.”

Kinzinger, one of two House Select Committee Republicans investigating the Capitol riot, was one of the most vocal lawmakers against Trump and voted to impeach the former president in 2021.

The Illinois congressman has, in turn, been censured by the Republican National Committee and often draws heat from Trump supporters inside and outside Congress.

In February, Kinzinger received a letter from 11 of his own family calling him a “disappointment” for advocating for Trump’s impeachment.

“We were once so proud of your accomplishments. Instead, you are going against your Christian principles and joining the devil’s army (the Democrats and the fake media),” the letter read.

Commenting on the letter on Tuesday, Kinzinger said Americans have become so “tribalistic” that they fear being ostracized from their communities “more than they fear death.”

“And so you accept anything because now republicanism or conservatism or Trumpism becomes your identity,” he said.

“I got kicked out of my tribe, and that’s fine,” he told Wagner.

Jameson Reeder, 10, had his leg amputated after a shark bite

Jameson Reeder, 10, Had His Leg Amputated After A Shark Bite

Jameson Reeder Jr. was attacked by a shark while snorkeling on vacation in the Florida Keys.

A 10-year-old boy had part of his leg amputated after being bitten by a shark while snorkeling on vacation in the Florida Keys, his family said.

Jameson Reeder Jr. was attacked Saturday at Looe Key Reef, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said in a statement.

A Facebook post by his uncle Joshua Reeder said Jameson had gone boating with his parents and three other siblings and was snorkeling in a shallow reef when he “took a crushing blow below his knee “, by what they believed to be an eight-foot-long bull shark.

Jameson was able to hold on to a noodle float and was rescued by his father, who applied a tourniquet to his leg and signaled another faster boat which brought the family back to shore.

The boy was then airlifted to Miami Children’s Hospital where a medical team saved his life but was forced to amputate his leg below the knee.

“He is now out of surgery and resting,” wrote Joshua Reeder, acknowledging Jameson’s strong religious faith for helping him survive the ordeal.

A family’s GiveSendGo appeal for financial assistance had surpassed its goal of $50,000 by Tuesday afternoon.

While a higher than normal number of shark encounters off New York City this summer has drawn attention, the overall risk of being bitten by a shark remains low.

Global trends are now roughly stable after increasing slightly over the past 30 years, in part due to increased human recreational activities and the recovery of vulnerable shark populations.

Last year, there were 73 unprovoked attacks worldwide, according to the Florida Museum. Almost all attacks are the result of mistaken identity, as sharks do not intentionally target humans.

Most attacks in the United States occur off the Atlantic coast of Florida, which is home to choppy waters and baitfish that several species of sharks feed on.

Kevin Mckidd Defends Ellen Pompeo For Cutting Grey'S Role

Grey’s Anatomy was among many hit shows honored at the awards show, including It’s us, which concluded its six-season run in May. And while the star mandy moore– who starred as matriarch Rebecca Pearson – was honored with an acting nomination and this year’s Virtuoso Award at the ceremony, fans were shocked when she was snubbed a nomination for best actress for the 2022 Emmys.

Her co-star and on-screen son Justin Hartley– who played Kevin Pearson – praised Moore for his talent on and off camera, telling pop of the day on the red carpet, “I think he’s a rare talent and I think he’s a rare person.”

“I’m going to tell you something,” he added, “if you call Mandy Moore and ask her for advice, she’ll either give you advice, or if she doesn’t know anything about what you’re asking, she’ll find someone who does and connects you with them and makes your life better. She’s like a therapist, an actress, a mother – what can’t she do? She’s amazing.
