Edge's 5 Best WWE WrestleMania Moments

Will The Rated R Superstar's upcoming match with Randy Orton give us a moment or two to rank alongside these?

The surrounding circumstances are a little less ideal now, but the fact remains: Edge is on the verge of competing in his first WrestleMania match in nine years. After ceding his career due to a spinal condition in 2011, it appeared that Edge's successful World title defense against Alberto Del Rio at WrestleMania 27 was the final round for "The Rated R Superstar".

Here in 2020, Edge is now healthy enough to resume his career at age 46. A hate-filled feud with one-time tag partner Randy Orton has put the two on a collision course for WrestleMania 36, perhaps the most intriguing match of the lot. It may not be the same without 70,000 or 80,000 screaming fans on hand, but no matter: it's still a beloved and decorated superstar getting to enjoy at least one more WrestleMania match.

Before that match with Orton comes to pass, let's take a look back at Edge's storied years as a WrestleMania regular, specifically which five moments from his previous 10 'Mania matches are his greatest.

5. Winning The Triple Ladder Match (WrestleMania 2000)

The match is most remembered for setting the template of future ladder matches, be they standard, TLC, or even Money in the Bank. 

All six men involved (Edge, Christian, The Hardy Boyz and The Dudley Boyz) are forever synonymous with the match type. But what's forgotten is that the match marked Edge's first on-camera title win in WWE.

The previous year, Edge won the IC belt from Jeff Jarrett at a house show, reigning for only one day. At WrestleMania 2000, Edge finally scored his first televised title victory after he and Christian sent Matt Hardy spiralling to his doom from a makeshift ladder-and-table platform.
