Edge Reveals His Favorite Match From WWE WrestleMania 34, Beth Phoenix’s Reaction, More


During the latest edition of Edge & Christian’s “E & C’s Pod of Awesomeness” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Edge said that his favorite match at WWE’s WrestleMania 34 pay-per-view event was Charlotte vs. Asuka. He also predicted that Charlotte would main event WrestleMania 35 next year against Ronda Rousey. You can check out some highlights below:

Christian on the Smackdown women’s title match: “I thought Asuka and Charlotte had an amazing match.” Christian continued, “I think it’s one of the best women’s matches I’ve ever seen. I thought they told a great story and I was surprised by the finish, honestly. But in a good way, like, I like being surprised, like, I like it when things like that happen. And I think it was the right time for Asuka’s [undefeated] streak to end. And, honestly, I think this will help her move forward more than it will hurt her to lose this match.”

Edge on what Beth Phoenix thought: “It was so, so good and I watched it with Beth. She was just so happy, so proud. She looked at me. She goes, ‘that was the best women’s match I’ve ever seen.’ And, man, but I hate putting that label of ‘best women’s match’. It was just a damn good wrestling match.”

Edge on what he thought: “It was my favorite match on the show by a large margin, and, again, everything’s subjective, but I loved this match. When the finish happened, I was shocked. I had goosebumps. Not only was the match so, so great, but the finish was unexpected, but perfect. It was a great time for it because it was unexpected, but it wasn’t unexpected like a Bill [Goldberg]/Brock [Lesnar] five-second or twenty-second match at Survivor Series unexpected. This was after a long, crazy, hard-fought back-and-forth.”

Edge on finally understanding Asuka’s appeal: “For everybody that [has] been [asking], ‘why don’t you get the Asuka thing?’ I get it now. That was a spectacular match and she played her part so well. I’m on the Asuka train. I get it. I’m going back to that match again, aren’t I? I just thought it was a great match.”

Edge on next year’s main event: “You now have a match next year with Charlotte and Ronda that can main event WrestleMania. I honestly feel with how that turned out, that Asuka and Charlotte could have main evented it and everyone would’ve walked home happy. But I truly believe that the climate is right that it’s finally time and you have the right two. Those two could main event WrestleMania after seeing Ronda’s performance and seeing how well she performed. I truly think, next year, I’m calling it now, you can have Charlotte and Ronda Rousey main event WrestleMania. And I truly think that’s the main event next year. I really do. Just saying.”
