Movie, starring Adam Copeland
(Edge) out March 9th is the latest in a series of nine films that Vince McMahon’s
WWE is financing and shooting in quick succession. The film program is being
supervised by producer and WWE Studios exec Michael Pavone and the slate culminates in WWE’s
first wrestling-related storyline: a biopic of Gorgeous George, the flamboyant grappler who
came of age during the advent of television. The pictures, which usually
put at least one wrestler in a role, cost about $7 million each to make.

the world one last time when he announced his retirement from professional wrestling due to cervical
spinal stenosis, making his match with Del Rio at WrestleMania 27 his final big match.
April 25, 2011
The Rated-R Superstar had been suffering numbness
and uncontrollable trembling in his arms and hands. This is not the first time Edge has experienced these symptoms of nueropraxia.
An MRI administered at Atlanta Midtown Diagnostic Imaging last Monday was sent to Dr. Joseph Maroon, a renowned neurosurgeon
and professor of neurosurgery at The Pittsburgh School of Medicine. After careful examination of the MRI, it was determined
that Edge would never be cleared to compete again, and thus, he is forced to retire.
In 2003, Edge underwent a two level spinal fusion of the discs between his C5, C6 and C7
vertebrae. After being cleared to compete, The Rated-R Superstar returned to the ring, resulting in stenosis of the spine,
or a narrowing of the spinal column, above and below the fused discs. This narrowing resulted in less and less of the vital
fluid needed to protect the spinal cord. Medical professionals cannot clear Edge to compete ever again in WWE since doing
so could result in paralysis or even death.

o Since November 1, 2004, Edge's current WWE entrance music is Metalingus
by Alter Bridge. During 2001-2003 it was Never Gonna Stop (The Red Red Kroovy) by Rob Zombie and before that he used two pieces
of WWF-produced production music entitled You Think You Know Me and On the Edge. Since You Think You Know Me, all of his theme
music has been preceded by the eponymous phrase from that song, including the Burn In My Light / Metalingus combination used

writers' to write their autobiographies, Copeland wrote the entire book himself. Mick Foley wrote the foreword to his

Copeland has several tattoos. He has a tattoo of a red and black sun on his left
upper biceps (which covers a tattoo of a muscular shark which resembled the Street Sharks), a star on his right upper biceps
with several smaller stars below it, two skulls wearing bandanas, adorned with flowers and hearts, below said star tattoo,
along with a tattoo of a cross on his left forearm. All of Copeland's tattoos represent a stage in his career: his sun,
which Copeland got while recovering from his neck injury, represents "looking towards brighter days." The cross
tattoo represents his time with the Brood, and his star and skull tattoos represent his Rated R Superstar persona and his
self-proclaimed status as the "Guns 'N Roses of wrestling."
Copeland has been married two times. He was originally married to Alanah Morley in November 2001, the sister of Val Venis,
but they divorced after three years. He was then married to Lisa Ortiz in 2004, but they soon divorced.

"Well that's just
it.. Edge said backstage at Seattle's Key Arena,
It's my Intercontinental Championship, so giving it up felt like crap ... that pretty much sums it up. It
sucked. Any time that you're not involved ... especially when it's because of injury it doesn't feel good at
all. That should have been me in that Ladder Match. That should have been me climbing those rungs and grabbing my belt back.
You know I have a problem saying it's anyone else's belt, because I never lost it."

His Favorite Bands:
Metallica, loves Queen, KISS, Fear Factory, Faith No More and Foo Fighters.
Edge Quote when interviewed about the booing from his hometown..... "Toronto is Bizzaro World" he said.
A recent Edge quote:
On cutting his hair: I'd actually like to get my hair cut, I'm sick of it! If it was up to me it would be short right
now.' (July 2004)
EDGE: When it
comes to diet I just try to watch my carbohydrate intake after about 5 or 6 p.m. I'm not super strict, I'm lucky I
don't have to be. I'm not a bodybuilder. I'm a wrestler. I have my weaknesses like chocolate chip cookies and
apple crisp. I corrupted Lance, who is usually extremely strict on his diet, to the occasional dessert.

the most difficult part of coming back to WWE after a long absence is training yourself to be abnormal again
broken hand is progressing nicely, and he just got the cast taken off, in favor of a brace that he'll have to wear for
the next week. Then just have to tape it heavily, he said. He still can't make a fist, however, which affects him in the
ring when he locks up, for example. (credit www.wwe.com)
His sprained ankle is feeling much better, although it's still not 100 percent. Doctors have told him that it's one of those
lingering things you'll feel up to six months.
Edge's weight went down to 205 from 240 after neck surgery...
Today he weighs 250 tries to maintain this weight by eating cookies, chocolate and pies
His workout routine:
When I'm neck injury free, my workout starts with 10 minutes of warmup cardio on
an elliptical machine. It gets the blood and sweat flowing a little bit. After that I do some rehabbing exercises for my still-torn
shoulder ligament. I have to do these for the rest of my career.
Now the workout begins. I vary it every other
month or so, but I usually train one body part a day, twice a week, which means six days in the gym a week. Sometimes with
our schedule it's tough to meet, but you try. On this workout, the only thing I train together is arms. On alternating
months, I'll train two body parts together, which is a longer workout, and also means I probably won't hit the gym
six times, more like four or five times in the week. I won't go into specifics because I train to maintain where I am
now, not to really gain size.
My body usually aches too much for that heavy lifting. I end off with some rehab
exercises for my still-torn MCL (once again, for the rest of my career), and hop on the elliptical machine for 20 more minutes
of cardio. I go pretty hard on my cardio. I try to stay around 225-230 strides per minute, which works up a great sweat, and
that coupled with my diet and metabolism, keeps me lean. I end off with abs, which I train every day. Nothing too fancy. three
sets of 20 crunches, three more sets of 20 but I hold at the top for about a two steamboat(not the wrestler), and finally
three sets where I do one crunch held for 20 seconds.

large WrestleMania payoff, however, it would be difficult to prepare a match for him this late. He would not receive medical
