4/15/11 Smackdown

Ezekiel Jackson vs. Kofi Kingston: 1/2*

Rey Mysterio vs. Drew McIntyre: **3/4

Kelly Kelly vs. Layla: DUD

20-Man Over-the-Top-Rope Battle Royal: **3/4

Great farewell speech from Edge. Even better that his mother got screen time.

The last few days when working out, I've had Edge's entrance theme on repeat. When he first debuted, I was unsure if Edge would be more than a midcard wrestler or a tag team champion. What a stellar career he had, and, like I stated on Monday, it's only a matter of time before he's in the WWE Hall of Fame as well. I'd likely give it at least a year, perhaps two, before he's inducted. It would be great if he were inducted the same year WrestleMania is in Toronto -- or anywhere in Canada.

The end to Smackdown was awesome. The perfect way for Edge to go out. He's earned the respect of everyone in the locker room and the respect of fans all over the world. Thank you, Edge, for all that you've given to us.
