Edge has shared his reaction to what he thought was lost footage of him appearing on a talk show featuring Bret Hart in 1992.
Footage has emerged on social media in recent days of a 19-year-old Edge asking Bret Hart how to get signed by WWE all the way back in 1992.
In the brief clip, Edge asks the then WWF Champion about getting signed by the company while also sliding in a cheeky plug for the gym he was training at. In response, Hart emphasised the importance of gaining as much experience as possible and trying to get featured on television.
After the clip came to light it was shared by Natalya who tagged the WWE legend in the process.
Sharing his reaction to the video he said he believed that the footage was lost. He explained that Hart apologised to him after the show for not being able to give a proper answer. Edge closed by praising the Hitman for giving back, before praising his own highly impressive mullet.
Thought this footage was lost.After the show Bret found me and apologized for not being able to give me more advice. I eventually went and trained at his house and he cracked the door to WWE for me to kick open. Truly gave back to the business. Also, my mullet game was top tier. https://t.co/yAWFkKVLiI

Edge made his in-ring debut in July 1992, making his first appearances in the WWE four years later. During 1997, the WWE Hall of Famer trained with Bret Hart as he recovered from knee surgery, making his television debut with WWE in June 1998.
After pioneering the TLC match alongside Christian Cage in 2000 and becoming one of the most successful tag teams in WWE history, Edge headed out on his own the following year. What followed was one of the most successful runs of all-time which saw him claim the King of the Ring, two Royal Rumble wins, 11-World Championships and five Intercontinental Title’s alongside numerous other accolades.
Edge announced his retirement from in-ring competition in 2011 as a result of a series of neck injuries. He was later inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012. Despite this, the Rated R Superstar completed one of the most unlikely comebacks in history appearing at the 2020 Royal Rumble.
The former World Champion has gone on to challenge for the Universal Championship, most recently defeating Seth Rollins inside Hell in a Cell at Crown Jewel.
