Edge’s first WWE Title win is historic for many reasons but high on that list would be that it resulted in one of Raw’s most scandalous segments – a live sex celebration.
The WWE Hall of Famer first captured the WWE Championship at the New Year’s Revolution pay-per-view in January 2006 by defeating John Cena. In doing so, Edge became the first WWE Superstar in history to cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase.
For The Rated-R Superstar, there was only one way to celebrate his monumental win – a live sex celebration with his on-screen girlfriend Lita in the middle of the ring on Raw.
Now former WWE writer Chris DeJoseph has joined John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield and Gerald Brisco on Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw to explain how the segment came to be:
“Edge had just won the title from John Cena and cashed in the Money in the Bank. We were in a meeting with Vince and he said, ‘Well what would you do if you won the title and you’re Edge?’ and I said, ‘I would have sex with my girlfriend in the middle of the ring for everybody to see.’ So that’s kind of how that live sex celebration thing happened.”
Edge’s fun on Raw nor his first WWE Title reign lasted long, as he lost the championship back to Cena just weeks later at the 2006 Royal Rumble.
