Edge talks about which Wrestlemania match confused him Submitted by Aaron Rift on 04/14/2018 at 12:00 PM
On their recent podcast, Edge and Christian discussed Wrestlemania 34 and here are a few highlights...
Christian on the show being too long: “I think that it was too long. It’s a long time for people to sit and watch [pro] wrestling and stay engaged the entire time. Like, I get it. It’s a huge event. Overall, I thought the card was really good. I thought that pretty much every match delivered. Just like I said, it seems like when people are sitting that long, they just get burnt out after a certain amount of time. Sometimes really great matches don’t seem as good maybe because the crowd is not as hot as they should be and it seems like it could affect the way the matches are viewed when they are really good.”
Edge on the length of Wrestlemania possibly having a negative impact on Roman Reigns: “I think that [has] affected Reigns two years in a row now. You want to be in the main event, but you’re in the main event after six-and-a-half hours of wrestling. That’s a tough position to be in, no matter who you are, to try and keep a crowd engaged. It is too long, but I get the flip side. You’re trying to get people on the show.”
Edge on why he was confused by Cena vs. The Undertaker: “The Taker/Cena thing… I’m confused. Yeah, even sitting in the crowd and running to the back. And then, what was it, a five-minute match or something? Was it? I mean, who knows going into it what limitations there are or anything like that, but, man, there was an opportunity to have a dream match at WrestleMania and it felt lost somehow. I don’t know. It was just odd. I guess that’s really what it was to me. It was just odd.”
Christian on the finish to Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar: “I was surprised by [the finish of the match], but that’s not always a bad thing. I think that it’s weird because, like, when… I think the same thing, like Reigns was put in a tough position two years in a row main eventing after a long, long night.”
Edge on who he thinks should’ve won: “I personally would’ve put the title on him [Reigns], but there you have it. There you have it.”
