Shutdown Corner - NFL

So, Tuesday night, The Rated-R Superstar Edge had to defend his world title against Dolph Ziggler, who is a total jerk, but is oh-so-dangerous inside the squared circle.

Further stacking the odds against Edge, the special referee for the match was to be Vickie Guerrero, who is kind of a jerk herself, and get this -- is dating Dolph Ziggler.

In order for Edge to survive the match with his world championship -- nay, his very life -- intact, he'd have to have help from a strong, noble and heroic friend. Fortunately, just such a man was nearby.

That friend's name? Clay Matthews(notes).

BOO-YAH. That's a Spear, and that's a one-two-three count from Matthews. That's what happens to bad guys, Ziggler.

Vickie Guerrero had also previously made The Spear illegal, before attempting to deliver one on Edge herself. In the process, she hurt her ankle, and that's why there was no other official available.

I'm so happy for Edge, and so impressed with Matthews, because in the two days since he won the Super Bowl, he has apparently been able to go through all the necessary training to become a licensed WWE official. He had the shirt and everything. He's a true renaissance man.

You can see all the action for yourself on Friday night at 8 p.m. ET on Syfy.
