WWE Hall Of Famer Edge recently took to his podcast with former Tag Team Championship partner Christian, E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, to talk about a variety of professional wrestling topics. One topic of discussion was the success of former New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) star Shinsuke Nakamura in WWE. Edge expressed concern with Nakamura, questioning how far the Japanese star could go in the WWE:
”It’s strange with Nakamura, man, because, like you’ve said, we’ve seen his matches with AJ [Styles] in New Japan [Pro-Wrestling] and everything. With Randy [Orton], I’ve seen it. And with Sami [Zayn], I’ve seen it. But that match too, man, I really loved that match and after that, it’s like, anything else is going to be tough to live up to.”
”I mean, maybe [Nakamura will ‘get there’]. Maybe. Who knows? It’s a different beast entirely. People can blame it on booking, this, that, or the other. I don’t know. I think it’s weird. It just goes to show how different places to wrestle are completely different environments.”
