What was originally planned for Edge’s involvement with the Judgment Day faction in WWE

During an appearance on Chris Jericho’s podcast, Adam Copeland (Edge) talked about what was originally planned for his involvement with the Judgment Day faction in WWE…

“When we were doing Judgment Day, the plan was that [Finn] Balor joins and about a year later, they all turn on me. Well, then I got to Hell in a Cell and it was like, no, we’re changing everything and we’re speeding up that year long process and he’s joining tomorrow and turning tomorrow, and it was just starting to find some legs, but it was going to be swimming upstream with me in it. It really was.

I started to have that realization. It’s like, I don’t think they’re gonna get where they need to get to with me in this thing. People know the real story and that was an instance where I did try and flip everything, change it all overnight, cut my hair off, change the music, and start coming out in suits. I tried changing everything and I realized at this stage, it’s not what they want, at least for me. They wanted to be able to cheer for this guy that they didn’t get for nine years.” (quote courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
