Edge Responds To Triple H’s Recent Remark On Raw, Will He Return To WWE?, Haven

As seen on the October 21 episode of Raw during the contact signing for the WWE Championship Match between Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton at Hell in a Cell, Triple H offended WWE Superstars and fans alike with his verbal burial of the talents of Bryan, as well as Chris Jericho, Edge and Rob Van Dam. WWE’s Chief Operating Officer grouped Bryan with his three predecessors and declared that like them, he is not capable of being “The Face of WWE.” The official WWE website caught up with Edge for an interview and asked him about the WWE Chief Operating Officer’s flippant remark.

“When you look back on WWE’s history, how many guys really were “the guy”? There was Bruno Sammartino, then Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, The Rock and now John Cena. Then again, does Triple H like guys with long hair that are better looking and more athletic than him? Probably not. And I think the three of us fall into that category,” responded Edge.

“The Rated-R Superstar” previously addressed Hunter’s remarks on Twitter, stating, “I think everyone forgets it’s entertainment. Santa isn’t real either. Or the Easter Bunny(I think, rabbits are sneaky).”

The 11-time World Champion appears regularly on Syfy series Haven, which started in July 2011, as Dwight Hendrickson. In response to whether he envisioned the show lasting through a fourth season then, Edge said, “I envisioned the show [going to season four], but I don’t know if I envisioned myself going to season four. [My involvement began] when WWE got in contact with the “Haven” producers, who were interested in using a wrestler. WWE said, “We got this guy. He just retired. We think he can do it.” And it just worked out. I went out and one scene turned into four scenes, turned into four episodes, turned into being asked back for the next season. That turned into seven [episodes] and then being asked back again next season and becoming one of the focal characters of the show.”

Edge was also asked whether he will return to WWE, and replied, “I’ll use the absolute most over-used cliché, “never say never,” because when I have come back, it has been fun. If it’s fun, cool and creative and would shake things up and help some new, young talent, I would.”

Edge has been posting paintings on Twitter, and discusses this and more in the interview. To access it, click here.

  • Wrong. Bret Hart was absolutely “The Guy” between 1993-1997. They tried to make HBK that, but when they did, rating tanked, because while he was exciting, a lot of males fans never bought his face turn, and didn’t want to get behind a guy with a male stripper type persona, who comes out to “Sexy Boy” on the loudspeakers. Hart was the real deal, and while Vince didn’t put the kind of muscle behind him that he did with Hogan, or now with Cena, Hart carries that company on his back for years, and was very over worldwide. He was the most over guy and highest paid wrestler in WWF when Vince forced his hand to leave for WCW, that’s part of why Vince was so stupid about the whole thing, because he “couldn’t afford him”. Make no mistake, for several years there, Bret Hart was most certainly “The Guy”.

  • Austin and Rock were not really “The Guy” at the same time, because they were around at the same time. Austin was “The Guy” for a while there, then he got hurt, and then Rock was “the guy” for a bit, until he started doing movie stuff here and there, and while he was gone, they tried making HHH “The guy”, but that failed hard. Austin and Rock were both huge, and Austin for sure was “The Guy” at one point. But neither of them were “The Guy” for the duration of time that Cena has occupied that spot. That doesn’t mean Cena is better than them, far from it. But it is what it is. I still say Hogan was the biggest “Guy” in wrestling history.

    He cant physically wrestle or he could become paralyzed. Don’t you think that if he could wrestle one more match without the risk of him become paralyzed being so high that he would have dropped the WHC and then retired the following night, he has been told by doctors that they will not clear him to wrestle, period.

    I agree with Triple H. Edge wasn’t the man. Neither was Chris Jericho. Oh… but Triple H never was the man either. As Edge said, there’s only really been a few true top guys and they were Sammartino, Hogan, Austin, Rock and Cena. That’s it. Other guys held the title and were on top, but they weren’t the top guy.

    Edge would come back if it would help a young talent, to me that translates to ONE MORE MATCH!
