Over the Edge was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event that was to be produced every May by the American professional wrestling promotion the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). The event was created in 1998, with its inaugural event produced as an In Your House event in May of that year. The event was retired the following year after Owen Hart, a performer for WWF, died during that year's event when he fell to his death during his ring entrance. In 2000, the event's pay-per-view slot was replaced by Judgment Day.
Since there have only been two Over The Edge pay-per-views, the PPV had been held in only two U.S. states. Both events were held in an indoor arena. Each event featured WWF talent competing in various professional wrestling match types.
Stone Cold Steve Austin was featured in the main event of both versions of the event. Also he was the defending WWF Champion in both events.
