Edge Praises Sami Zayn’s Character, Says He Wants To Work With Him


During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, WWE Hall of Famer Edge commented on wanting to work with Sami Zayn in WWE, the evolution of Zayn’s character, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On wanting to work with Sami Zayn: “I would love to share the ring with Sami Zayn. I would love to do it in Toronto. We’d keep it real simple. He can come out in his Habs jersey, I’ll come out in my Leafs jersey, and we’ll go from there.”

On Zayn’s promo work: “There’s a key to Sami’s success. There is an element of truth to all his promos. As a heel, you have to have that nugget of truth. If you have it, you can push everything else forward. So his promos feel much more real. He’s doing incredible work.”

On how Zayn’s developed his character over the years: “The crowd just knows to boo this guy. That’s to his credit. His promos, his character work—Sami is incredible. He’s gone from El Generico, then this plucky babyface with checkered tights and Mighty Mighty Bosstones–type music. Now he looks like some kind of dictator. I really dig it. Thinking about it, I can’t wait for it to happen.”
