Edge Speaks On Life After Wrestling, Key WWE Memories, John Cena, Booker T
The following are highlights from a recent interview with WWE Hall Of Famer Edge:
On his TLC match at Unforgiven 2006 with John Cena: “Oh yeah, I love that match. It was highly emotional for me, after being booed all that time from the moment I came back, then being cheered in my hometown and being in a TLC match. If you watch that match, I think you can see it in my face at the beginning and after the match I lost my heeldom. Those matches I had with John were some very physical matches.
We also had a lot of fun with that storyline, as Lita and I went over to John’s dad’s house and slapped him around (laughs).”
On his match at WrestleMania 18 with Booker T: “I remember our time being cut because Undertaker and Flair went like seven minutes over their scheduled time. So we went from 14 minutes to seven, and the entrances took a good four minutes. So it was like, wow, we don’t have much time at all here. So we were thinking, okay, it’s not going to be quite as cool as we thought it was going to be. Then add to that the fact that we were fighting over a shampoo endorsement commercial. I mean, ah really?
But having said that, the experience of going out and wrestling there, 12 years after I was sitting in the crowd at WrestleMania 6 was pretty amazing.”
On his life after retiring from pro wrestling: “It’s very relaxing. I just love being outdoors and being active. It’s just a normal every day kind of life and I find different ways to exercise outside, after all those years working out in gyms. I do a lot of hiking with my dogs. On my last DVD, I think my favourite part was seeing my dogs in high-definition on the Blu-ray.”
