WWE.com recently listed 15 patriotic moments that they salute in honor of the 4th of July. Edge making the save during the arm wrestling contest between Kane and Gen. Grimsley at Tribute to the Troops 2010 made the list. The writeup is posted below and you can see the actual video segment over at WWE.com.
Maj. Gen. William Grimsley found himself up against tall odds in Fort Hood, Texas, when Kane answered his open arm wrestling challenge at Tribute to the Troops in December 2010. The former World Heavyweight Champion seemed eager to deny the major his moment to shine in a contest of strength, and despite Grimsley’s bluster, The Big Red Monster was proving a difficult foe to beat.
Suddenly, the major’s salvation came in the form of a Canadian (who’d have thought?): The Rated-R Superstar, Edge, who sprinted to the ring in a flak jacket and Speared The Devil’s Favorite Demon into next week. Even though The Ultimate Opportunist hailed from the Great White North, the image of Edge and Grimsley celebrating in the ring with the contest abandoned and the challenger lying in a heap was enough to transcend nations. All together now: YU-ESS-AY! YU-ESS-AY!
