Edge defends WWE’s decision to hold WrestleMania 36 despite coronavirus outbreak

WWE Hall of Famer Edge recently spoke with DigitalSpy where he spoke about a wide range of topics. 

During the interview, he talked about WWE’s decision to push forward with holding WrestleMania 36 despite the entire world going through the coronavirus outbreak. 

This show was originally slated to take place in Tampa, Florida but with the concerns of the virus, WWE was forced to move locations. Thus, the biggest event of the year for the company will be held at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida in front of no fans. 

“This year more than any year we are all in the midst of something we have never experienced before, the world really needs outlets,” Edge said. “Whether that is books, whether that is movies, whatever it is, just to be able to try and forget and laugh and have fun and remember what it is to be human. That’s why we’re doing this. There’s one reason. That’s the reason.”

At this show, he’ll face Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing match at WrestleMania. 

“As long we can try and be as responsible and as safe as we can, why wouldn’t we try and do this for everyone?” he said. “As a performer, that’s what we want to do. If we can do that and if people watch and can have fun for a few hours then our mission is accomplished.”

Edge noted that it’s a privilege, an hour, and a responsibility to do this. He stated that talent takes this lightly and there’s a reason the show is going on and those reasons are why. 

Edge also talked about his in-ring return at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event and more. You can read the entire interview here.
