He is one of the greatest but it's just that are a lot more guys who are just greater than he is and more worthy of the GOAT title.
I use it more as an indicator of someone's accomplishments in the kayfabe "sport" it still matters for something in these discussions because it's an objective point compared to "O well I enjoyed his in ring work" which is quite objectiveHe is one of my favourites but he isn't classed as GOAT os one of them because...
- a lot of his reigns were forgettable and very short
- he was around when cena,trips,shawn,taker were still doing their thfing and couldn't really stand out as much as those guys.
-he was never a big draw. That doesn't matter to me and I hate when people define someone based on whether they could sell tickets or not but its a fact that when you list austin,hogan, rock even cena etc.. A lot of people were there see them. With Edge it seems like the fans paid to see the show and edge was a nice bonus.
That's just my opinion
Exactly, every wrestler has his or her detractors, Edge is one the greatest of all time 11 time tag team champ multiple time Intercontinental World Heavy Weight & WWE Champion and 1 time United States Champion, He's a Royal Rumble Winner He's responsible along with Lita for one the the biggest ratings in RAW history and of course was apart of the one of the greatest tag teams of all time.From the reasoning of some people you'd think Orton, Batista or Lesnar deserve a higher place on the GOAT list than Edge.
I guess that's what you get when you're stuck having to carry the B show. People even seem to rank him average on the mic and in the ring, when he was obviously great in those areas.
It would have been cool for WWE to keep each brand its own PPVs, would have loved to see how well the SD PPVs would have done with Edge as the draw.
Also I don't get why being a part of one of the greatest tag teams and couples of all times don't factor in one being one of the GOAT, he excelled at everything the WWE threw at him.
