Beth Phoenix showed up to Monday Night Raw this week with the promise of a “medical update” on her husband Edge. It was always a perfect set up for an interaction with the man who put him out of action in storyline, Randy Orton.

They did give us an explanation from Orton, finally. He said he did all this because, well, he loves Edge. He wants him to be a good husband and a good father, and Phoenix has just been an enabler who has allowed him to fall victim to the fact that he’s a junkie for the roar of the crowd. He was doing him a favor, you see!
Beth finally slapped him when he went too far, and then kicked him when he called her a “bitch.” That’s what led to the RKO.
Now we await the return of Edge, who will surely be coming in hot.
