It may not be that surprising to hear that it is a ladder match which brought to an end one of the most interesting WWE careers to date.
Speaking with TMZ, Edge revealed that the neck injury which forced him to retire was a result of many ladder matches.
As one of the founding members of the Tables Ladders and Chairs match, Edge along side his partner Christian were known for their high risk manoeuvres.
But it left a lasting impact on the Rated R superstar:
"I fell off ladders a lot and that took a toll on the neck."
Edge's highlight reel is a great watch, from his spear on Jeff Hardy while 20 feet in the air at WrestleMania X7, to his sombre farewell on Monday Night RAW, he has thrilled fans for years.
He will be returning to WWE TV this Sunday when he and Christian host their Cutting Edge Peep Show and welcome the New Day to their segment.
Last time the five were together, it made for a memorable moment so who knows what will happen this Sunday, but it sure will be good to see him back - something fans thought they may not see again.
