Recently, former WWE tag team champions Edge and Christian recently took to their podcast, “E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness,” to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Christian offered his thoughts on Jon Moxley’s mic work and Edge discussed WWE’s scripted promos.
Here are the highlights:
Christian on Jon Moxley’s mic work: “I think it’s great. Look, I think he’s really talented. I think he’s a great dude. I consider him a friend, so I’m glad that he’s happy and reinvigorated, so-to-speak. I think you’ll see more of his true self and he is a really good promo guy, a good talker and he’s one of these guys that’s better when he’s unscripted.
“If anything, he [has] created a huge buzz for himself and for the industry. And I think, like I said previously, there’s no better time to be a wresting fan than now because there are so many options and I think the fan really wins in this situation.”
Edge on WWE’s scripted promos: “It’s interesting, you hear how scripted everything is and da-da-da-da-da and how stifling it can be, and I think there’s probably an argument for both sides. I think there’s an argument, because you’re a publicly traded company; it’s FOX; it’s USA [Network]; it’s all of these things, so I get that side of it.
“But I also get the aspect if things were so heavily scripted, you don’t get the Macho Man [Randy Savage] ‘cream of the crop’ promo, I don’t think. You wouldn’t get ‘Austin 3:16’, I don’t think.” Edge added, “I get both sides, I guess is what I’m saying.”
