Honestly, I don't hate Edge or anything like that. He just doesn't rank as one of my favourites of all time. That said, I haven't watched his main event push just yet (just the aforementioned Jeff matches), so maybe that will change.
Usually people either love him or hate him. I just think his personality is awesome, and his matches are always fun to watch. Like his match against Mick Foley for example, and his bouts against The Undertaker.
Plus that deranged look on his face when he's ready to spear someone. Pure amazingness.

These lists are terrible!
1) The Ultimate Warrior - Arguably no wrestler accomplished so much in so little time. Warrior's career was essentially 7 years and he became an icon. The principled man he was outside of the ring makes me admire him more.
2) Macho Man Randy Savage- Top 5 all time promo. Top 10 all time ring psychology. One of the greatest workers of all time. Savage had it all and maintained it for a long time.
3) The Rock- Charisma personified. A great big match wrestler and extremely underrated in regards to ring psychology. The Rock put any and everyone over and did so masterfully. Cena could learn a lot from this.
4) Stone Cold Steve Austin- There is a reason why Austin had the most succesful 4 year period of any wrestler in history. The promos were always classic and while diminished by injury, his ringwork was always great.
5) The Undertaker- Arguably the greatest big man of all time(Vader beats him IMO). An incredible athlete who remained so for at least a deace and a half.
6) Jeff Hardy- Fearless in the ring and an incredible worker. After Hart he probably has the best transition from Tag to singles champion ever. He started as a disciple of Sting and took that energy and made it his own.
7) Kurt Angle- Angle was classic from beginning to end. Heel, face, it didn't matter. I wish he would return to the WWE for on last big match and then retire.
8)Randy Orton- When you look at Orton it is really shocking how great he has been at such an early age. If Orton retired now he is a legit all time HOF. The personification of the modern tweener.
9)Mr. Perfect- Curt Hennig had the best intro ever into a wrestling company. He is one of the guys that deserved a WWE title run but never got it.
10- RVD- Life is timing and the WWE had a potential goldmine in RVD and missed out. The guy was hotter than Austin and was having 5 star matches at will.
So I've been watching PPVs that I never watched before, going year by year with my sister. We're now up to Summerslam 2006, and I'm seeing more and more of Edge as a main event heel.
He's certainly not bad at all, and he's good on the mic to go with his wrestling ability, even as silly as the oversexualised stuff with Lita is. Still waiting for him to "click" with me as a true main event heel though.
