    Version History
    1.0 (April 2, 2005) – Started writing this FAQ. Written intro, 
    biography, moves, and strategy. Finished it in a day.
    Hi, this is my first FAQ to submit. I am an avid player of wrestling 
    games, and I happen to like Edge. Seeing as there isn’t any Edge 
    character FAQ on the SvR section, I decided to write one. Hopefully, no 
    one else decided to >:)
    Anyway, here’s the controller legend you’ll need to follow:
    X = X button
    T = Triangle button
    S = Square button
    O = Circle button
    {B} = Will make target bleed (if head area is red)
    {G} = Groggy (position)
    U = Upper body
    L = Lower body
    Sub. A = Submission A, the tug-of-war submission
    Sub. B = Submission B, the “timing” submission
    D = Dirty move
    Pretty simple, isn’t it? Okay, good.

      X:                       Spinning Wheel Kick 02 {B}
    * - Moves with asterisks are moves that I used instead of the default, for
    continuity reasons. For the finisher, if you decide to use Spear 02, then
    the button for Edgecution 01 would just be L1.      
    Basic Strategy
    -Using default moveset-
    With the default moveset, Edge’s finishers target the head. The best way to
    capitalize this is to focus on the head area in the course of the game 
    (Spinning Wheel Kick, Downward Spiral, Edge O’ Matic, etc), with the body
    as a second goal (the Gutbuster works well on this). Similarly, if you can
    get the body and head red, making the opponent tap out through the Edgecator
    (right + O, lower body of down opponent) is easier.
    -Using edited moveset-
    With the edited moveset (which was edited by me to keep up with the recent
    Edge moves and matches), you have the Spear 02 (pretty much similar to Edge’s)
    and the Edgecution 01 (seen recently). You can win by working on the body and
    finishing it up with a Spear or by working more on the head and cleaning house
    with Edgecution. You can also win by submission with the Edgecator. You need
    not work on the body to win with a Spear.
    -How to do standing double team moves-
    Standing double team moves are harder to time than turnbuckle moves. You need
    to do the grapple while someone else is grappling your target (it can’t be 
    done the other way around). Position yourself near the grappling duo and press
    the buttons.
    -How to do jump down over moves-
    These are the hardest moves to pull off, although you don’t need a target (but
    it'll be much easier to pull off with one). While your target is outside the 
    ring (the game AI will usually do a little taunting outside), move back from
    the ropes a little bit, and then run toward them. When you reach the edge, 
    simultaneously press S and X. If you timed it right, your character will do
    his move (in Edge’s case, he will dive through the ropes).
