Cena-Edge Deliver In Main Event

The superstar that deserves the most credit for his performance on Sunday night at Unforgiven has to be the Rated R Superstar - Edge. The now former WWE champ stepped up and had an outstanding match with rival John Cena, and while two had what was likely their best match to date, Edge was the star of the match and the night. He took two crazy bumps, including the double table bump that ended the match and allowed Cena to easily grab the title belt and take home the victory. Edge also had to play the role of good guy, even though you could see it was not easy for him, in his hometown of Toronto. He did a good job at the role reversal, and played it off well.

The TLC concept worked well for these two, and while the match is supposed to be built on taking a ladder and grabbing the belt, the real story of the match was the tables, that were used at will, and broken many times throughout the night. Give Cena his due as well, as he took a crazy bump from a ladder onto a table late in the match when Lita pushed him off into a waiting table on the floor. Cena also gets a ton of props for not folding when having to play the heel in the match, a role that he does extremely well considering that he is supposed to be over with the fans.

One thing they should have done is show Teddy Long after Cena won the match. He was in the building in a vacant suite, and showed him early in the show. With the stip that Cena would have to go to SmackDown if he lost, they could have at least shown Long's displeasure when Cena won. Oh well. With the belt going back to Cena, look for this feud to continue, and yet another match should be coming down the pike at either Survivor Series, or possibly at the Cyber Sunday PPV or December PPV. Or how about all three? It's been a solid back and forth feud that is sure to see more highlights before it concludes.
