Edge is a member of the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2012 and he was quite remarkable during his time in the company before he retired.
WWE is saddened to learn that the father of WWE Female Star and WWE Hall Of Famer is dead.
Edge’s wife Beth Phoenix’s father passed away last week and he was needed as emotional support for his WWE Hall Of Famer wife.
Edge is a WWE Superstar and in high demand. Not only does he have a podcast that totally reeks of awesomeness, but he is also on Vikings, a show about people who didn’t shower very often so they probably did reek in reality.
But it seems that Edge had a recent appearance for a Q&A overseas that he was really looking forward to that he had to cancel. His wife Beth Phoenix’s father passed away last week and he was needed as emotional support for his WWE Hall Of Famer wife during this hard time.
For the record, Beth Phoenix is a former WWE Divas Champion, a three-time WWE Women’s Champion, and the youngest person to ever be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
This is actually the 2nd time Edge has needed to cancel an Inside The Ropes gig because shooting for Vikings got in the way the first time. But the very bearded Edge was needed elsewhere and although it’s unfortunate for fans who couldn’t wait to see what he had to say, it was for a very good reason.
Our thoughts are with Beth Phoenix and her entire family as they deal with this sad time.
