I know that Edge and Val are brothers-in-law in real life but does anyone remember a really odd moment on RAW a few years back.

Val just defeated Edge (might have been someone else but I believe it was Edge). After the match, Edge grabbed the mic. His exact words.

"Val, you were the best man tonight. But you won't be the best man at my wedding. Do you know why? Because Christian will be"

Ummmmmm yea ok...

Anyone know where the true story behind this?

I think that was part of an aborted angle that was supposed to trigger a feud between Val and Edge. This happened in early 2000, right? As I recall, Edge got busy with the Hardys/Dudleys feud and Val just kind of treaded water for a few months until turning heel.

It was a Russo-written angle that would have led to a feud, from what I remember... I recall they were talking about bringing in Val's sister/Edge's wife Alannah for part of this...

From what I remember, Edge was supposedly marrying Val's sister, but then all-of-a-sudden became a chick magnet, probably leading to Edge cheating on his gf and severely pissing off Val.

You think WWE now is bad? Some of us had to live through 1993-1996!

Russo was long gone by then but I guess it could've still been his idea.

Edge explained on Observer Live a long time back that it was to be the start of an angle and Val/Edge program. But Val got hurt and E&C/Dudleys/Tables was getting so much heat that E&C joined the tag feud with the Dudleys and Hardys.

From what I recall being told on Off the Record with Edge that time, Edge's best man was his longtime friend Jay Reso (Christian), and Sean Morley was one of the ushers, still in the wedding party. (As if they could've kept him away).

Throw in The Godfather as the wedding singer, and hey, let's have an impromptu tag-team match right there at the wedding chapel! We'll make millions!

I laughed mightly at "the most socially interactive appearance in history" because it was such an absurd phrase. Isn't Del Rio property of the RAW roster? Same with Truth... Oh brand split...
