How many of us can say that we accomplished our lifelong dream? How many of us can say that we're doing exactly what we wanted to do when we were children? Edge can.

One of the brightest young stars in WWE, Edge sat on the floor for WrestleMania VI at SkyDome in Toronto, watching Hulk Hogan battle the Ultimate Warrior. Although he was only 16 at the time, Edge already knew that he wanted to follow in the footsteps of Hogan and Warrior; he wanted to be a World Wrestling Superstar. Twelve years later, more than 60,000 will watch Edge, as he competes at WrestleMania X8 at SkyDome in Toronto.

Edge already accomplished a career highlight at SkyDome -- in July 1999, he won the Intercontinental Championship there.

The Canadian Superstar has excelled in both singles and tag-team action. Along with his brother Christian, he won the World Wrestling Tag Team Championship seven times, a record for a duo. Edge & Christian were also part of some of the most memorable tag matches in history -- including the Ladder Match at WrestleMania 2000; the Tables, Ladders and Chairs (TLC) Match at SummerSlam in 2000; TLC II at WrestleMania X-Seven; and TLC III on the May 24, 2001 episode of SmackDown!

But when Edge won the 2001 King of the Ring Tournament, his brother Christian seemed to grow increasingly jealous. He insisted, for example, on always carrying Edge's King of the Ring trophy. Then, on Sept. 3, 2001, Edge was a part of another unforgettable event in Toronto -- but this time, it was unforgettable in the sense that it was shocking. On a live episode of RAW from the Air Canada Centre, Christian assaulted Edge with a steel chair as the hometown fans held their breath in disbelief. Arguably the greatest tag team in history had abruptly come to an end.

Edge now looks to become one of the greatest singles competitors of all time. The early returns are favorable: he defeated Christian in an epic Ladder Match at No Mercy 2001 to become the Intercontinental Champion. In fact, he has already won the Intercontinental Championship on four occasions.
