Tommaso Ciampa talked about what type of advice he’s gotten from Edge while doing an interview with Inside The Ropes.
Here is what he had to say:
“Yeah, Edge was kinda in my back pocket the whole time. I would — I don’t know when exactly it started, it’s hard for me to say. I feel like it was some time after New Orleans, but I’m not sure exactly when. But it was, he came down to the Performance Center, and we got chatting then. And he kinda just put it out to a bunch of us, saying, ‘Hey, if you guys wanted to throw ideas by me or whatever,’ I think he gave his phone number, his email or whatever it was. And I just took him up on it, and I started to just send him — I feel like it was shortly after winning the title.
“I started to just, if I had a big match coming up, a Takeover or whatever, I would send him kinda my thought process, my outline. And I’d just say, ‘Hey, am I missing anything? Are there any holes in this, is there anything that you would, you know, embellish on or that you would, you know, stay away from?’ And he kinda just became my sounding board as far as prepping to go into matches. And just, a lot of it was exactly what you just said. It was, ‘How do I make sure I get booed and I don’t have any redeeming qualities?’ And he was awesome for that. He’s got a great, great mind. Like, I would love it if he became somebody who took on a role like Shawn Michaels has in NXT because he just is so awesome so work for.”
