Lance Storm always asks if he could be serious for a minute. The truth is he's so good, he should be nothing but taken seriously, and he wasted little time in proving it by defeating Albert to bring the WWE Intercontinental Championship to the WCW/ECW Alliance!

Storm quickly asserted himself as one of ECW's top pure athletes, and with Justin Credible, formed the Impact Players. Together, Storm and Credible were ECW Tag Team Champions for more than seven months. But soon dissension developed between the team, and Storm left ECW after losing a "Loser Leaves ECW" match to Credible.

After arriving to work under the old WCW regime, Storm captured the WCW United States Championship, the Cruiserweight Championship and the Hardcore Championship in just three weeks!

Throughout his career, Storm has expressed his Canadian pride, and makes it well known that he's from Calgary, Alberta, Canada! Recently, he has made it known to the world that he believes Americans are lazy, ignorant and self-centered. He has bonded with Test and Christian, who share this belief, and formed a surly faction known as the UnAmericans.

Finishing move: Edgecution
Career Highlights: WWE Tag Team Champion (8); Intercontinental Champion (4); WCW U.S. Champion


How many of us can say that we accomplished our lifelong dream? How many of us can say that we're doing exactly what we wanted to do when we were children? Edge can.
One of the brightest young stars in WWE, Edge sat on the floor for WrestleMania VI at SkyDome in Toronto, watching Hulk Hogan battle the Ultimate Warrior. Although he was only 16 at the time, Edge already knew that he wanted to follow in the footsteps of Hogan and Warrior; he wanted to be a World Wrestling Superstar. Twelve years later, more than 60,000 will watch Edge, as he competes at WrestleMania X8 at SkyDome in Toronto.

Edge already accomplished a career highlight at SkyDome -- in July 1999, he won the Intercontinental Championship there.

The Canadian Superstar has excelled in both singles and tag-team action. Along with his brother Christian, he won the World Wrestling Tag Team Championship seven times, a record for a duo. Edge & Christian were also part of some of the most memorable tag matches in history -- including the Ladder Match at WrestleMania 2000; the Tables, Ladders and Chairs (TLC) Match at SummerSlam in 2000; TLC II at WrestleMania X-Seven; and TLC III on the May 24, 2001 episode of SmackDown!

But when Edge won the 2001 King of the Ring Tournament, his brother Christian seemed to grow increasingly jealous. He insisted, for example, on always carrying Edge's King of the Ring trophy. Then, on Sept. 3, 2001, Edge was a part of another unforgettable event in Toronto -- but this time, it was unforgettable in the sense that it was shocking. On a live episode of RAW from the Air Canada Centre, Christian assaulted Edge with a steel chair as the hometown fans held their breath in disbelief. Arguably the greatest tag team in history had abruptly come to an end.

Since then, Edge has become a force in the singles division. He defeated Christian in an epic Ladder Match at No Mercy 2001 to become the Intercontinental Champion. In fact, he has already won the Intercontinental Championship on four occasions.

But his tag team days are definitely not behind him. On July 4, 2002, Edge paired up with his boyhood idol, Hollywood Hulk Hogan, and won his eighth WWE Tag Team Championship!

CHRIS JERICHO
Height: 6'
Weight: 231 pounds
From: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Career Highlights: WWE Champion; WCW Champion; Intercontinental Champion (4); European Champion; Hardcore Champion; Tag Team Champion (2); WCW TV Champion; WCW Cruiserweight Champion


They said he was too small to ever be a "main-event superstar." They said he couldn't "win the big one." Chris Jericho proved them all wrong.
Jericho first appeared on WWE television on the August 9, 1999, episode of RAW -- live from Chicago. Windy City fans have a reputation for being rabid -- and on that day, they more than lived up to it. When "Jericho" appeared on the Titan Tron, the fans went crazy. A star was born. Jericho immediately gave himself a nickname -- Y2J -- to emphasize that he was the superstar for the new millennium.

During the ensuing two years, Jericho won the Intercontinental Championship on four occasions, the Tag Team Championship twice, and the European and Hardcore titles as well. An impressive resume to be sure, but after coming in with such a bang, some critics suggested that his first two years with the company had been a disappointment because he didn’t win the WWE Championship. Before coming to WWE, Jericho had four unquestionably disappointing years in WCW, so some doubters suggested that Jericho lacked the size necessary to ever make it to the top. It certainly couldn't have been a lack of charisma or athletic ability - Jericho has those to spare.

Finally, in late 2001, Jericho forced all his doubters to, as he would say, "shut the hell up." He "won the big one," defeating The Rock at October's No Mercy Pay-Per-View to capture the WCW Championship. Then, in December at Vengeance, he became the only man to defeat The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin in the same night, and thus became the Undisputed Champion.

That night, Dec. 9 in San Diego, Calif., he also became the only superstar to have held five different WWE titles.

With all those accolades, it is perhaps no surprise that Y2J took on a significantly more conceited attitude in subsequent weeks. He'll step in the ring and get face to face with a man like Ric Flair -- arguably sports entertainment's greatest of all time -- and call himself a "larger-than-life superstar" and a "living legend." He'll insist that fans "clap their filthy little hands" in his honor.

It may seem unbelievable to many fans. After all, Y2J was one of the World Wrestling Entertainment's most popular superstars. But even if they want to boo, his detractors can never again say that Y2J won't make it to the top. In 2001, Chris Jericho proved them all wrong when he became the first-ever WWE Undisputed Champion.
