    Meaning I can't edit the content......

    Is there a reason for this?

    There are Wikipedia pages that have been locked (protected or semi-protected) so that only administrators and confirmed account can edit them. This is to prevent vandalism or defamation on a Wikipedia page. You can read more about this on their Protection Policy page.
