For weeks Edge had been verbally attacking Ric Flair about his personal problems. From his pending divorce to his alleged road rage incident, Edge pulled no punches in his verbal diatribes berating the Nature Boy. Flair, who is never at a loss for words, couldn't even defend himself, because his lawyers had advised him not to talk about the topics. But at New Year's Revolution Flair had his chance to let his actions speak louder than words.

Edge dominated the match early on, targeting Flair's well-documented vulnerable back. But Flair made a come back and started to target Edge's leg. Flair looked about ready to put Edge into the Figure Four Leglock, but Lita hopped up onto the apron. Flair then turned his attention to the lovely Lita. Edge tried to sneak up behind him, but Flair saw him coming and backdropped him out to the floor.

With that, Flair tossed Lita into the ring and set her up for the Figure Four instead. He had it locked in, but Edge came back with his Money in the Bank briefcase and blasted the Nature Boy in the head, busting him wide open. Edge wasn't satisfied with just one blow, though, as he delivered two more, leaving the Intercontinental Champion laying in the middle of the ring.

Edge didn't win the Intercontinental Championship, but it would still end up being a historic night for the Rated R Superstar as he made another appearance later in the evening.
