Over the Edge was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event that was produced in May by the American professional wrestling promotion, the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE). 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 were only two Over The Edge pay-per-views, the PPV was only held in 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. He was also the defending WWF Champion at both events.
