** WWE Superstar Edge in Melbourne This Friday**

Melbourne, Fl – January 8, 2010

Huge news for fans of Sports Entertainment: WWE Superstar Edge will be making an appearance in Melbourne, Florida, this Friday, February 12th. The multi-time world champion will be performing a meet and greet autograph session for lucky fans attending the Florida Championship Wrestling show at the Melbourne Auditorium that evening when FCW Wrestling makes its Space Coast debut.

WWE fans will be fully aware of the impact that Edge has had since his surprise return at the Royal Rumble a few weeks ago. After sustaining a career-threatening ankle injury in 2009, Edge unexpectedly returned to action 5 months early, winning the annual ‘over the top rope’ spectacular and securing a WWE World Title shot at Wrestlemania XXVI against the reigning champion. With Edge keen to make up for lost time, he appears to be unstoppable in his ascent back to the top of the ladder in WWE. One thing is for sure – you do not want to miss this opportunity to have a one-on-one meeting with ‘The Rated-R Superstar’ in Melbourne this Friday night.

In addition to the appearance of Edge, there are 8 big matches on the card including a Six Man Tag Team Match pitting Florida Heavyweight Champion Justin Angel, Kaval, and Bryan Danielson against WWE Superstars Curt Hawkins, Trent Barreta and Caylen Croft, Also appearing on the action packed card are ‘The Fortunate Sons’ Brett DiBiase and Joe Hennig, 7’2” Jackson Andrews and the hot FCW Divas . With speculation rife regarding the imminent debut of WWE’s new television show ‘WWE-NXT’, all FCW Superstars are sure to be at their best as they attempt to impress top brass in WWE and secure spot on the new show’s roster. And with Edge watching over the evening’s proceedings, the stakes have never been higher.

Edge had the following to say about his appearance at the show: “I am looking forward to meeting the FCW fans in Melbourne this Friday. It is always nice to see how things are developing with the future talent of WWE. In a couple of years, the majority of the Superstars you see on the show this Friday will have been drafted up to Raw or Smackdown, so I suppose it is also a great opportunity for me to get the scoop on who I’m going to be facing down the line. I’ve been told there are a lot of hungry young superstars eager to impress in FCW, so I will be making a few notes on which upcoming stars I need to look out for.”

Don’t miss your opportunity to meet WWE Superstar and 2010 Royal Rumble winner, ‘The Rated-R Superstar“ Edge this Friday at the Melbourne Auditorium in Melbourne, Florida.

FCW is the only Official Developmental territory of World Wrestling Entertainment.
