WWE Hall of Famer Adam “Edge” Copeland recently did a fact or fiction interview with Justin Barrasso of SI.com. During the interview, Edge was asked about a possible second season of “The Edge and Christian Show That Totally Reeks of Awesomeness” on the WWE Network. Edge stated that they want to do a second season of the show and so does WWE, but it’s just been a matter of finding time to film it. He noted that he wants to write the show this year along Christian and two of his friends. He wants to bring Tommy Dreamer on the show in the second season and said that he has some ridiculous ideas for the show. “I’m back and forth from Ireland filming ‘Vikings’, and I’m also a dad and a partner, so I need to make sure all the plates stay balanced, and nothing falls to the ground. So we’re going to do it, it’s just a matter of when.”
Edge has a history with Jeff Hardy as they were bitter rivals and had some great TLC matches. When asked about Hardy still wrestling after all of the crazy spots he has done throughout his career. Edge stated that’s amazing at this point that Hardy is still able to move. Edge noted that Hardy is an easy-going guy and that maybe it has translated to his body being able to absorb all that punishment through the years. “I don’t know, but he’s still going, and that’s a fact.”
Edge dealt with neck injuries throughout his career and it ultimately cut his career short in 2011. When asked if he had his next angle in mind if he didn’t retire that year, Edge noted that he had his next year mapped out in his head and had been talking to everyone about it. “ I assumed I had at least a year left. That’s what I had on my contract, and I really, really wanted to see it through and work up until the last day of my contract.” Edge said that is the way he was raised. He was WWE World Heavyweight Champion at the time of his retirement and wanted to pass the title to the next guy in line. “It really hit home when I was told, ‘We’re not going to allow you to compete anymore.’ We did have a tentative plan to go forward once [Alberto] Del Rio and I were through our program. Christian would have cost me the title to Del Rio, and then we would have moved on and done our thing – and I thought he would retire me at WrestleMania.” This is how he wanted to exit the business so he could wrestle his lifelong best friend in his final months of his career and give Christian a great heel direction once he retired.
