Press Release: E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness Returns On Westwood One Podcast Network

Adam “Edge” Copeland and Jay “Christian” Reso End Podcast Hiatus With New Shows and a New Network

New York, NY – November 13, 2018: The wait is over! Adam “Edge” Copeland and Jay “Christian” Reso are back as their podcast returns with a new home: Westwood One Podcast Network. Get ready – new episodes of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness start Friday, November 16th. E&C will make their return with a new episode featuring a revealing conversation with one of wrestling’s most gifted and notorious figures, Shawn Michaels.

The innovators of the TLC match, the five-second pose and the masters of reeking of awesomeness, WWE champions Edge and Christian’s podcast takes listeners behind-the-scenes of the wrestling industry as the hilarious duo interview wrestlers and entertainers they’ve met over the years, share fun stories about life after the business and being dads, and, sometimes, they even play the kazoo. Some have called them the Lennon/McCartney of podcasting. Others have called them the Milli Vanilli. Edge and Christian say if you understand either of those references, their show is for you.

Edge and Christian are excited to get back in the groove with their pod fans. Edge said, “The most decorated champion in WWE history, me… and Christian, are back with more E&C Pod of Awesomeness on our new home, Westwood One Podcast Network. Our team just got mightier. Look out Hosers, this Pod will even surpass awesomeness now!”

Reso added, “I know all of our Hosers have missed me and maybe Edge just a smidge. Well, the auditory idiocy is about to get real. We’re back Brother Brother on the powerful Westwood One Podcast Network! And of course, Paul Smackage and Flip Sunset are coming with us… pppfffffttt here we go!”

“Edge and Christian have been named the greatest tag team in WWE history, and their chemistry is just as electric on the mic as it is on the mat,” said Suzanne Grimes, EVP Marketing for CUMULUS MEDIA and President, Westwood One. “Their unique insight combined with their connection with fans are just two of the reasons why this pod oozes with awesomeness.”

E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness drops new episodes every Friday. Listen and subscribe to the show now on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, WestwoodOnePodcasts.com, or the Westwood One Podcasts App for iOS or Android.

WWE.com: Edge & Christian To Induct The Dudley Boyz Into The WWE Hall Of Fame

The Dudley Boyz and Edge & Christian took part in some of the most extreme battles in WrestleMania history, pushing each other to the absolute limits of what they could do with tables, ladders and chairs. This WrestleMania, the mood when the two pairs are in the same building will be a little less intense.

The duo that reeks of awesomeness will have the honor of inducting Bubba Ray & D-Von Dudley into the WWE Hall of Fame during the 2018 Induction Ceremony on Friday, April 6, from New Orleans, streaming live on the award-winning WWE Network.

Edge & Christian and The Dudleys, along with The Hardy Boyz, were inextricably linked with each other during WWE’s Attitude Era, as they set new bars for what Superstars were willing to do in the chase for glory. Their Ladder Match at WrestleMania 2000 left the WWE Universe in awe, as the competitors risked their bodies in pursuit of the World Tag Team Championship. The teams topped themselves one year later at WrestleMania X-Seven in the bout they became known for: Tables, Ladders and Chairs. After the demolition derby of a match, they somehow survived, emerging from underneath mangled steel and splintered tables, having created a legacy that Superstars are still trying to top today.

In New Orleans, though, Edge & Christian will get to share stories about their rivals from inside the ring and out in their inimitable fashion when The Dudley Boyz take their place in sports-entertainment history.

What will Edge & Christian have to say about The Dudley Boyz? Find out during the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, streaming live on WWE Network Friday, April 6, at 8 ET/5 PT.

Tickets for the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans are available now.




Audio: The Steve Austin Show – Edge and Christian

This episode of The Steve Austin Show totally reeks of awesomeness as Adam “Edge” Copeland and Jay “Christian” Reso join Steve via Skype for a tremendous conversation! Be here for stories about TLC matches, injuries, breaking into the WWE in the midst of the Montreal Screwjob and Edge’s new gig on VIKINGS.




ProWrestling.com: Christian Talks Chris Jericho vs Kenny Omega, If Jericho Still Has What It Takes To Be The Best

Former WWE star Christian recently spoke with Kevin Kelly for Title Match Wrestling, and you can watch the entire conversation below. The following are some interview highlights:

Christian on whether or not he feels Chris Jericho, at his age, can face Kenny Omega and still prove that he is the best:

“Oh for sure. I think as you get older, and I can attest to this, you find different ways to be great if you physically can’t do the things you could do before. You’re wily enough, you’re smart enough, you have enough experience to figure out different things and different ways. And I don’t even think Chris has lost that big of a step physically. He’s very durable, he’s never really been injured. Even when he’s gone back for his previous runs with WWE, he didn’t look like he missed a day, to me, and he could still go out there and do 25, 30, 40 minutes if he needed to.”

His overall feeling on the Chris Jericho vs Kenny Omega bout:

“Honestly, I think it’s a great thing for the business as a whole that this is even happening, and I think it also legitimizes how good Kenny Omega has been the past year or so. Because I don’t think [Chris Jericho] would be doing this if Kenny wasn’t the real deal.”

WWE.com: 20 Most Epic Entrances Of All Time

#20. Gangrel / The Brood / The New Brood

Vampires are pretty scary on their own, right? But Gangrel took everything about the vampire lifestyle and cranked it up.

As his eerie gothic music started up, the arena turned a gory shade of red and a ring of fire formed on the stage. Soon, the mysterious Gangrel rose up from the flames.

In some sort of mystic ceremony, he stood at the top of the ring steps, spitting out a viscous red liquid into the WWE Universe, dribbling some onto his white shirt.

If that’s not enough to make someone think twice about agreeing to the match, then what is?

Screen Daily: ‘SuperGrid’ Begins Production In Saskatchewan

EXCLUSIVE: Raven Banner to handle worldwide sales, distribute in Canada.

Principal photography has begun in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan on SuperGrid, the apocalyptic road movie from the creators of WolfCop.

Regina-based producer Hugh Patterson has teamed up with Trinni Franke and director Lowell Dean (pictured at right), who directed horror-comedies WolfCop and Another WolfCop. Toronto-based Raven Banner handles worldwide sales and will distribute in Canada.

SuperGrid is set in a near future where mining conglomerates have turned Canada into a wasteland. Two brothers must travel the same road that claimed their sister’s life in their quest to deliver mysterious cargo. En route they must contend with road pirates, rebel gangs, and each other.

Leo Fafard of WolfCop stars alongside Marshall Williams, Tinsel Korey, Natalie Krill, Fei Ren, former WWE wrestler Jay Reso, and Regina natives Amy Matysio, Daniel Maslany, and Laura Abramsen. SuperGrid is funded by Telefilm and Creative Saskatchewan and the producers anticipate a 2018 release.

“To produce a movie with local crew and a strong cast in my hometown is a huge win,” Patterson said. “Remaining local is a must for SuperGrid. With Lowell at the helm, we are pumped to show the world an epic prairie apocalyptic road movie, that is produced right here in Regina.”

“It’s great to be joining forces with the Lowell and Hugh again,” Raven Banner managing partner Michael Paszt said. “We look forward to capturing the same magic with them on SuperGrid that we had on WolfCop.”

WWE.com: The 33 Best WrestleMania Matches Of All Time

#32. Money in the Bank Ladder Match (WrestleMania 21)

Location: Los Angeles
Date: April 3, 2005
Time: 20:08

Why it’s great: These days, the Money in the Bank Ladder Match is an institution. At WrestleMania 21, it was a demolition derby experiment, one that included a flying Shelton Benjamin and concluded with Edge claiming the first-ever Money in the Bank contract.

Jericho invented that: According to Chris Jericho’s book “Undisputed,” the original concept for this match was a “Hollywood Dream Ladder Match” where the winner would have any wish fulfilled. When that idea was nixed, Jericho himself came up with the first iteration of the contract as it exists today.

WWE.com: Edge & Christian Launch Podcast With Universal Champion Goldberg As Their First Guest

E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness launched its inaugural episode in the wee hours of the morning, and to ensure that Edge & Christian’s maiden voyage on the podcast sea was, well, awesome, the duo wrangled WCW icon and reigning Universal Champion Goldberg as its first guest.

“I mean, obviously, there’s no one hotter at the moment,” Christian told WWE.com. “Goldberg’s come back after being away for so many years and kind of taken the company by storm again. He’s Universal Champion, and he’s ended all of his matches quickly and emphatically. It’s cool that he’s brought that intensity back and hasn’t lost a step. He’s not getting paid by the hour — he’s getting in, he’s getting out.”

Christian is, of course, well-acquainted with that Goldberg intensity, having battled the behemoth 14 years ago during his initial WWE run.

“We’ve crossed paths here and there very briefly, but this was the first time I’d had a real conversation with him … and probably one of the only times I’d talked to him since he almost Speared my spine out of my body, which people still send to me to this day as a Twitter GIF,” Captain Charisma said with a laugh. “We also talked about that — he gets that GIF sent to him a lot, too.”

Fortunately for the podcast-listening world, Christian and his longtime friend and tag team partner — another master of the Spear — could put aside that past unpleasantness to pick Goldberg’s brain before his anticipated Universal Championship title defense against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, The Ultimate Thrill Ride.

“It was nice to catch up with him, get some insight into how his body is feeling now that he’s a little bit older, what it’s been like after his comeback and how he’s been navigating the waters after being away for so long,” Christian said. “Brock is an animal, but to have somebody that can match him size-wise, strength-wise and explosiveness-wise is a pretty big thing. It’s gonna be interesting. And hearing how amped up and pumped up and how seriously he’s taking it, I’m looking forward to a great show. Not just their match, but overall. I think WrestleMania is going to deliver like it always does.”

Forbes.com: Edge And Christian Think ‘Broken’ Matt Hardy Would Work In WWE, Talk Paige

One of the true signs of a legendary career is one where the legend in question is at peace. This demonstrates both fulfillment and accomplishment, which describes the careers of childhood friends and former WWE Superstars Edge and Christian.

Each had wildly successful runs both as singles and tag team performers, and neither have any desire to get back in the ring even as a stadium filled with over 80,000 screaming fans awaits at WrestleMania 33. I spoke with the entertaining duo as they prepared to release the first episode of their podcast, E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, which will feature WWE universal champion Goldberg as its first guest.

“We want it to be very fan-interactive. We’re going to have a voicemail where you can leave ideas or just rambling whatever and we play it on the air,” said Edge.

“We don’t take ourselves too seriously, so it leaves a lot of room to just have fun with stuff, so hence you get the TV show on the [WWE] Network and I’d like to think, in terms of a podcast, we’ll try to bring the same thing.”

Christian followed up, saying “we want to talk about everything. We’re both fathers and we want to talk about that. [Edge] is big into music…we both like all types of different types of sports and we can actually formulate a sentence or two, so good for us.”
