Wrestlemania Greats : Foley VS Edge


With Wrestlemania 29 just one week away, thought it was a good time to look back on some of the highlights from the Showcase Of The Immortals.

There are obvious superstars just jump into your mind when you think of Wrestlemania, it is after all the biggest event of them all, when long time rivalries are finally put to bed, in the most insane ways possible and that brings us to the meeting of Edge and Mick Foley at Wrestlemania 22 in what ranks as one of the best and certainly the bloodiest Wrestlemania matches of them all.

Foley had previously been referee for a Edge/Cena confrontation and Edge was blaming him for the fact that the Rated R Superstar lost his title. He wanted revenge and what better revenge in the WWE world than with a Hardcore match, anything goes, falls count anywhere, what Jim Ross would no doubt describe as a Slobberknocker.

The match was stunning with Foley taking an early beating until Edge went for the spear and discovered that Mick was wearing barbed wire which gave him the upper hand and soon the blood began to flow. Foley was smashed into the stairs, Edge had wire dug into his face, the blood was spilling everywhere. Then, there was a table, oh yes.

Lita poured lighter fluid onto the table and set it alight and Edge added a full stop by spearing Foley straight through the burning table. Epic.

In the new PG era, it seems unlikely that we will see this type of match again but grab the DVD as this is a great great battle between two of the best.
