In a recent interview with Slam! Sports, Christian’s best friend and former tag team partner Adam ‘Edge’ Copeland talked about a range of topics including his acting career and even the upcoming WWE Network show Edge & Christian’s Show That Totally Reeks of Awesomeness. Here’s what he had to say about the show:
Upcoming is a return to the world of WWE — Edge and Christian’s Show That Totally Reeks of Awesomeness, set to debut soon on the WWE Network.
“Eventually they talked me into it,” laughed Copeland, explaining that he wasn’t exactly reluctant, but unlike his buddy, Christian (Jay Reso), he’s not under a WWE deal. “He’s still under contract, but I’m not. I think the sell job had to be to me.”
The show does reek of awesome unpredictability.
“They’ve given us a lot of range to just start writing stuff and come up with a lot of weird things. So far, nobody seems to be batting an eyelash,” he said. “We’ll see once it airs if we still have that kind of freedom. As of right now, it’s just been fun. It was a nice little dip of the toes back in after the surgery to do something creative again.”
The duo will be taping segments WrestleMania weekend.
“I haven’t been in a few years, since they inducted me, actually, just because I was always doing something,” he said. “This year, I think we’re going to try and go out and do some filming for our show, and just get it all in one fell swoop, get some filming done with current guys that are on the roster, because you don’t want to ask them to fly up to New York on a day off.”
