Former WWE Champion Edge, recently spoke on the current WWE Champion Jinder Mahal on his podcast; “E&C’s Podcast Of Awesomeness”. Also, the WWE Hall Of Famer went over not being medically cleared to wrestle & more.
Here are the highlights:
Edge’s Thoughts On The Singh Brothers:
“I think The Singh Brothers, I know them as Harv and Gurv, they’re doing great. I think they’re a great addition to the whole package and I saw them at the pay-per-view and when I see them grabbing Bob Orton and Ric Flair’s face, I’m super proud of them because I know where they’ve come from and everything and for them to be able to be that involved and have the office to give them that nod of approval, I guess, or confidence, that they’d involve them with a guy like Orton, Bob Orton and a guy like Ric Flair and Larry Hennig and Baron von Raschke and all these guys sitting there, it’s got to be… I know for them, their mind is probably blown at what’s happening, but it’s a big part of Jinder’s deal.”
Comparing Jinder’s Rise To Randy Orton’s Rise:
“Here’s what people forget: that was Randy 15 years ago. That was Randy working Chris Benoit, teaming with Ric Flair, working against Shawn Michaels and Jericho and teaming with Batista, working against me. Like, he was working against guys that were much more experienced in that level on the card and he was thrust into that too and, obviously, he swam like Michael Phelps with it. Anyways, you do see the confidence Jinder is gaining and the small time lapse of trying to think of what to do next instead of going with instinct are starting to happen. That instinct and timing and not second-guessing yourself is starting to assimilate in and you can see it happening.”
Edge On Not Being Medically Cleared To Wrestle:
“I just want to make this as clear as possible. I appreciate that people always ask me, ‘oh, so you’re going to come back for one more match, right?’ It’s a huge complement that you want me to come back for one more match; however, it can never, ever happen. The WWE has medically disqualified me from ever wrestling again, so for those listening, that’s the way it is, but I appreciate you wanting more.”
