Edge

Today we are talking about Edge...
the self-proclaimed "Rated R" Superstar.
To try and understand the wrestler better I've been checking the dictionary for the true meaning of 'edge'. Strangely, it hasn't helped.

He doesn't seem to be a border where two surfaces meet, or the brink of a surface.
Perhaps he is moving sideways through the crowd, which is better than backwards I suppose. Maybe he is sharpening someone's blade ( actually that just sounds a bit rude ). I know he does put some people's teeth on edge, but that doesn't seem to help either. If he was called Edgy, I might think he was daring, provocative, or trend-setting, but he's not really... No matter how hard he tries ( and he does try ). And no, he doesn't play a "dynamic" lead guitar in U2 either.

Can anyone out there help?? Is it maybe an acronym for something?
