Edge came out and gave a long farewell speech about his career and how he won his first World title here in Albany. He points out his mother in the first row. Edge left and then came back out, saying he wanted to do his entrance one last time. He placed his World title in the center of the ring, hugged his mother and left.

Backstage, Rosa Mendes tells Edge she is going to miss him. Alberto comes up to Edge and wants to shake his hand. Edge just walks off.

Kelly Kelly defeated Layla. Michelle McCool was on commentary. After the match, Lay-Cool argued. McCool tried to leave. Layla grabbed her hand. McCool shoved and her walked off.

In the Battle Royal: Big Show, Kane, The Corre, Heath Slater, Jack Swagger, Brodus Clay, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre, Yoshi Tatsu, Kofi Kingston, Rey Mysterio, Tyler Reks, Chris Masters, Chavo Guerrero, Curt Hawkins, Trent Baretta and JTG.

Bret Hart "Disappointed" With WrestleMania

The SunUK interviewed Bret Hart and here in the interview in full.

WWE LEGEND Bret Hart reckons this year's WrestleMania failed to live up to his expectations, echoing thoughts of fans around the world.
In an exclusive chat with SunSport, Hart picked out the WWE's use of The Rock and the length of the Jerry Lawler v Michael Cole match as the reasons for his disenchantment.

The Hitman told us: "I was a little disappointed with WrestleMania to be honest. I felt it was anti-climactic.

"I was hoping The Rock would be a little more interesting than he was. I would have had him involved in the John Cena v Miz match right off the bat.

"My initial thinking about two months ago was that Rock was going to be working with Cena and somehow Miz would be involved, and it would be a triple threat type of match. I thought Rock needed to be in the match, not just talking about it.

"Don't get me wrong — Rock is a great talent. Just looking at him, I think he is ready to get back in the ring. I'm sure he could have wrestled at WrestleMania and he should have done so.

"The excitement going in to WrestleMania this year was all tied in with Rock and when he didn't actually do anything but stand around and be a mouthpiece all night, that didn't really work.

"To me as a fan, if I want to see him be a mouthpiece then I'll watch one of his movies. I wanted to see him do some wrestling.

"I guess I just expected a little bit more."

"I also feel that WWE mismanaged the storytelling of the angle, by centring the whole match on The Rock.

"When the show was over, The Miz was more of an afterthought. He didn't mean anything and his stock didn't go up by winning the main event. I almost forgot all about him."

Hart added: "I also had to scratch my head and wonder how the WWE could pull the Sheamus v Daniel Bryan match and let Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole go for 30 minutes. It just seemed really crazy to me.

"My biggest disappointment was that two of the best wrestlers in the company, Bryan and Sheamus, didn't get a chance to show what they can do on a WrestleMania.

"I thought Lawler v Cole was built up really well, with most fans wanting to get their hands round Cole's neck by the time WrestleMania came.

"But I don't know why they went so long. It's not a match that needs to go very long. Michael Cole clearly can't actually do anything. That's the part I don't get. It should have been about four or five minutes long max.

"Sadly going so long, meant they really took all the light away from the other wrestlers that earned it through the year."

However, Hart was impressed with Randy Orton clash with CM Punk, calling it the best match on the show.

Praising CM Punk, Hart said: "He has got a really good ring presence. Better than anyone else, CM Punk understands his wrestling persona.

"He's very serious about that character, and I like that passion that he has. It comes across in how he is day-to-day, just being around him.

"He's a very committed, serious professional. His match with Orton, I thought, was really credible. To put together the match the way they did I thought it complemented both wrestlers, and they really told a good story.

"I liked the story, I liked the finish. It had a lot of twists and turns, you weren't quite sure what was going to occur.

"I found myself going along with it all the way through and not knowing what was going to happen next — and to me that is a good wrestling match."

Howard Finkel: "Thank you Edge for everything that you gave and meant to this industry, and personally speaking, thank you for your friendship!"

Mick Foley: "A sad day for wrestling, but what an amazing career for Edge. I was so fortunate to have been his opponent, his partner, his friend."

Joey Styles: "In wrestling you make many acquaintances and few friends. Edge is a friend. My friend, seeing you was always a pleasure and never a chore."

Michelle McCool: "Didn't catch raw but heard about most important part. I love you Edger! Thank you all you've given to a biz I have always loved! Mad respect goes out to all you've done not only for your fans, but for us as well. I am so blessed to call u a friend! Thx for always helping me! Ily."

Kelly Kelly: "Thank you Adam for everything.. you've been such a great friend your an amazing person, n inspiration and I had the honor of working with u!"

Jim Ross: "Edge will always be one of my favorites. I'm so grateful I was in a role to help him launch his wwe dream. Dreams do come true. Edge=HOF!"

Vickie Guerrero: "I'm so sad to see Edge leave...I'm honored I got to learn so much from him. He will be missed."

Matt Hardy: "Heard Adam is retiring because of physical issues that won't allow him to safely continue wrestling. He'll be missed, we've certainly had our fair share of issues.. Both good and bad. But I tip my hat to Edge who is one of the greatest I've ever been in the ring with. Adam resides in NC now-sure I'll run into him down the road. Glad that him & I are in a good place. We came in as friends, & went out that way."

Kevin Nash: "the loss of Edge is a sad day 4 the WWE great in ring,but such a special guy out,he still has years left to give."

Hulk Hogan: "if any of the guys like me, Flair, Hardy, Andre, AA, Blanchard, orndoff, Henning would have listened to doctors we would have quit15yrsago, but I don't know Edges working environment because they are a media company not a wrestling company. HH wrestlers work hurt!"

"What about Foley! I bet EDGE still wants to keep wrestling,he's one of the boys big time!!! HH"

"my take is with a unfixable neck injury it's over ,but he's one of the boys and it will be hard to keep him down,he's 4life HH"

"I'm not saying anything bad about Edge but he's a real wrestler,Stone Cold and Cena had neck surgery a
