Edge Says You Need To Have A Close Relationship With Vince McMahon To Become A Top Guy In WWE



During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated to promote his appearance on “Vikings”, WWE Hall of Famer Edge discussed Vince McMahon and becoming a top guy in WWE. You can check out some highlights below:

On Vince McMahon and his passion for the wrestling business: “There are not many with Vince’s work ethic, and I think what that does is breeds it in a lot of his performers, especially the ones that make it to the top. If it isn’t already in you, it will be taught to you by Vince, whose go-to was usually to push, not praise, but that was OK with me.”

On what his relationship with Vince McMahon is: “I’ll still call or text Vince, and it’s not about bad things or complaints or gripes. When I got dual-citizenship, I called him thanked him for the opportunities he afforded me in his company. I don’t know how often he hears that.”

On needing to have a close relationship with McMahon to become a top guy in WWE: “That’s not politicking, that’s getting to know each other and allowing him to know what type of person he is going to invest this massive machine in. How can he do that unless he has some sense of who you are as a person, and not just as a performer? It happened organically with us. When I had points I felt very strongly on, I went to him. In doing it, he began to see that I would stand up for what I believed strongly in, and that I would admit when I was wrong. I didn’t look for a pat on the back when I was right, either. He also knew how much I cared for that industry.”
