Edge gives high praise to NXT star Submitted by Aaron Rift on 11/26/2017 at 02:23 PM
On his recent podcast with Christian, Edge gave his thoughts on Velveteen Dream in NXT:
"I hadn't seen much of Velveteen Dream but I watched him and Aleister Black. That kid's been working 3 years, for 3 years to be where he's at is incredible. He's found a character, he's fully committed to it. It's parts Rick Rude, it's part Prince and it's fun. I really enjoyed that. He's going to be a player, it was really fun to watch. It was a fun match and I thought there were a lot of cool false finishes and like I said for 3 years in or whatever, he's going to be a good one."
Christian also gave his thoughts:
"If anybody on NXT wanted to stand out, if anyone had any interest in going out there a being a pure heel, they would stand out more than anybody else on that NXT show. In a lot of these matches I didn't know who the heel or the babyface was and I just think there was no real set heat. People get enamoured with the 'this is awesome chant' but it doesn't necessarily mean there is a personal connection there. Fans are conditioned to react to certain spots like that, I just think more people would've been behind Aleister Black if there was a set heat in this match."
