WWE Hall of Fame gets Rated-R as Edge takes his spot
Reported by: Colin Vassallo, on Apr 1, 2012 - 1:41:12 AM

It was an emotional night for former WWE champion Edge as the Rated-R Superstar was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his best friend Christian.

In his speech, Christian said that Edge is trying to look and emulate him by cutting his hair and looking like "Justin Bieber just hitting puberty." He then asked what else he will do to be like him, "maybe shrink 3 inches and lose 9 World titles."

Christian had to stop a few times when recounting his strong friendship with Edge and his tough times as a kid with a single parent. He then introduced Edge and the two embraced in a long hug. Edge filmed his own entrance with his cell phone, pretty funny considering he doesn't use Twitter or Facebook.

Edge said that he was going to make fun a lot of people during his speech, which he did, picking on his close friends Rhyno and Lance Storm who were also in the audience.

Edge thanked several people who contributed to his success including Bret and Owen Hart, "Glen and Mark," referring to Kane and the Undertaker, Kurt Angle, the Hardy Boys, Dudley Boyz, Mick Foley, William Regal, Michael PS Hayes and others.

He also had a special thank you to Vickie Guerrero and Lita - who was sitting in front row - for their help in creating the Rated-R persona.

He called his mom his greatest tag team partner and Edge had to fight back tears while talking about her. He thanked everyone for their support and decided to exit the stage with a rock song rather than the usual boring HOF song.

You can see Edge being introduced at the ceremony below.
