TORONTO — It’s never a good idea to insult Canada in a WWE ring. More often than not, there’s a locker room full of Legends from The Great White North looking to shut you up.

Unfortunately for Elias, that Superstar turned out to be Edge.

The six-string slinging Elias had spent more than a few minutes insulting the Toronto faithful during SummerSlam Kickoff, attacking everything from their music scene to his desire to leave the city and head to Los Angeles just like former Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard. And then his crooning was drowned out by one of the great theme song openings ever: You think you know me?

With that, Edge appeared to a deafening reaction from his hometown crowd. The Rated-R Superstar, who has avoided in-ring altercations since retiring due to a neck injury back in 2011, hit the ring to defend his beloved Toronto. And not only did he silence Elias’ music, but he took him out with one of his legendary Spears!

The sight of Edge destroying Elias led to an eruption from the crowd and set the stage for what will most definitely be a rocking SummerSlam.
