• Former WWE Champion Says He Was Choked Out By John Cena During Their Match

While speaking on the latest WWE Untold, WWE Hall Of Famer Edge discussed his Tables, Ladders and Chairs match with John Cena at WWE Unforgiven 2006. 

He recalled being choked out by Cena’s STF submission maneuver during the match.

“At one point, John put me in the STF when I was trapped in a ladder. Because the ladder added an extra distance from his arms, he actually choked me out. You can watch me pass out.

I just remember hearing an alarm and thinking I was late for an Air Canada flight. I remember hearing [buzzing sound]. When I came to, it was me making the noise and I was looking up at the Air Canada Center logo. I had never been choked out before. Then it was just, get to the next thing.”
