Wrestlers have emotions too and The Edge proved it on Monday Night Raw this week when he announced in front of thousands of fans he had no choice, but to retire due to a neck injury.
Watch his emotional farewell to the World Wrestling Entertainment world, which made him a star after winning a record seven World Heavyweight Championships.
Tears crept through that tough exterior as the fans chanted, "Thank you, Edge! Thank you, Edge!"
We're sure wrestling fans will be sad to see him go, but happy to know he will be living a long and happy life after catching the possibly crippling injury before it was too late.
"If you asked me 'Would I do it again?'", he questioned the crowd. "In a heartbeat."
People say wrestling is fake, but The Edge and countless other wrestlers are proof that the pain is real and they put their bodies on the line for our entertainment.
Thank you, Edge! Good luck in whatever endeavors the future holds for you!
