Adam Copeland was born on October 30, 1973 in Ontario, Canada. He is better known by his ring name Edge. He made his pro debut in 1993. While on the indy scene wrestling as Sexton Hardcastle, he teamed with Christian Cage. Edge debuted in the WWE in 1998 as a loner that would enter the ring through the crowd.

While feuding with Gangrel, his "brother" Christian debuted at the side of Gangrel. Edge Edge & Christian left the Brood and Gangrel in 1999 and went on to become the most successful team in WWE history.

As partners they won the World Tag Team Titles on 7 different occasions. Their 3 way feud with the Hardy Boyz and the Dudley Boyz was a classic as were the TLC matches they had against those teams. By 2001, the two men became goofballs that would allow fans 5 seconds of flash photography among other zany antics. In 2001, Edge won the King of the Ring tournament and that set in motion the undoing of this team.
SmackDown Superstar:

In the original draft, Edge was taken number 6 by SmackDown. While there, he feuded with Kurt Angle and won the WWE Tag Team Titles with both Hulk Hogan & Rey Mysterio. In 2003, Edge needed neck surgery and was off for a year.

In March 2004, Edge was drafted by RAW. In June, he became World Tag Team Champ with the World Heavyweight Champion Chris Benoit. In July, he became Intercontinental Champion by beating Randy Orton. He feuded with Evolution and Chris Jericho. In September, he suffered a groin injury and missed a month of action. When he returned, he asked the fans to vote for him to fight Triple H in the main event of Taboo Tuesday.

By fan vote, he and Benoit were to wrestle for the tag team titles at Taboo Tuesday. He walked out on his partner who would go on to win the belts. The Edge vs Benoit feud culminated in a 3 way match with Triple H for the World Title which resulted in the title being declared vacant. Around this time, Edge’s autobiography was released.

Edge started 2005 off feuding with Shawn Michaels. At WrestleMania 21, he won a Money in the Bank ladder match which entitled him to wrestle for any championship whenever he wanted to within a year. A few months later, reality and wrestling story lines collided as he started going out with Matt Hardy’s girlfriend Lita. This led to a feud between the men and a feud with Kane who was “married” to Lita at the time.

At New Year’s Revolution 2006, he cashed in his title shot after John Cena survived an Elimination Chamber Match. He easily beat the worn out champ to win his first world title. He lost the belt a few weeks later at The Royal Rumble. A few months later he won the title from Rob Van Dam but lost it back to John Cena. In May 2007, he won the Money in the Bank title shot from Mr. Kennedy and used it to easily beat the Undertaker the following night after the Undertaker fought in a steel cage match against Batista and was beaten up after the match by Mark Henry.

Edge started a relationship with SmackDown GM that allowed him to gain an unfair advantage to continue winning championship gold. In the summer of 2008, the two got married. The marriage didn't last for long and Edge would eventually find himself on the other side of Vickie Guerrero's wrath.

In 2011, their on-again/off-again feud culminated with her firing him and stripping him of the World Heavyweight Championship. Luckily for Edge, her ruling didn't last for long because Teddy Long reclaimed the General Manager title and rehired Edge. He immediately got a title rematch and beat Vickie boyfriend, Dolph Ziggler, to reclaim the World Heavyweight Championship.
