I'm glad he went out as a face. i remember when he had to give up the title due to injury on SmackDown once as a hee,l and was boo'd by the crowd even though you could see he was really broken up about it.
Did he do a ten second pose on his way out?
Man I miss the funny Edge and Christian days....
If he hadn't been forced to retire how many good years would he have had left?
Another 5-7 possibly.
He's 37 now, and since his style was so physical, i really couldn't see him doing a Flair. Like he said in his good bye speech, he wears tights.
