Edge is not known for being particularly restrained when it comes to big WrestleMania matches.
At WrestleMania 17 the star hit a remarkable Spear on Jeff Hardy from the top of a ladder before following that up at WrestleMania 22 by driving Mick Foley through a table which just so happened to be on fire.
Despite now being in the final stages of his career aged 49, the star has admitted that he’s still intent on creating chaos when he meets Finn Balor at WrestleMania 39. Appearing on SN590 The Fan, the WWE Hall of Famer discussed his upcoming Hell In A Cell clash with Balor. Edge emphasised the importance of using insane stunts sparingly while admitting that he’s got some “stupid” ideas for Hell In A Cell that WWE likely won’t approve of.
“Well, again, I have a history of doing stupid things, right? You do because it’s a Hell in a Cell match and because people expect a certain level of, I don’t know, brutality within the performance. You gotta up the stakes. So I do. I think outside of the box and I think about what’s physically possible and a lot of crazy ideas jump into my head and they always have. But I always try and make sure that I save them for WrestleMania or I’ll save them where it’ll actually mean something and be remembered.
I’m not diving face-first through a flaming table with thumbtacks in my back unless it’s WrestleMania, because I know that will be one that people are gonna remember. If you just do it on Raw one week, well, then it’s gone and it’s not gonna be remembered because there’s 52 other Raws or 51 other Raws during the year. WrestleMania happens once a year.
If you’re a casual fan, you may be watching. If you’re a wrestling fan, you’re definitely watching and that’s the one that I know has the worldwide eyeballs on it so that’s where you gotta go for it and man, you put me in a Hell in a Cell, I gotta go for it even if I’m 49-years-old. That’s just part of the way I’m wired so, I have some pretty extra stupid ideas. We’ll see if they let me try them, they probably won’t. But we’ll see.”
Finn Balor Bringing The Demon To Meet Edge
On the March 27th episode of Monday Night Raw, Finn Balor took the opportunity to reply to Edge’s creepy candle-filled promo from the week before. Balor implored his rival to go to his dark place and do whatever he needs to do to get into that mindset, adding that he doesn’t need to summon his demon because it’s always there. At this Balor’s demon face paint flashed over his face.
