In a recent interview with Sportsnet in Canada, WWE Hall of Famer Edge discussed several topics, including having crazy ideas for his Hell in a Cell Match against Finn Balor as part of WrestleMania 39 this weekend.
“Well, again I have a history of doing stupid things right, you do because it’s a Hell in a Cell match and because people expect a certain level of, I don’t know, brutality within the performance, you’ve got to up the stakes, so I do, I think outside of the box and I think about what’s physically possible, and a lot of crazy ideas jump into my head and they always have, but I always try and make sure that I save them for WrestleMania or I save them for where it will actually mean something and be remembered.
I’m not diving face-first through a flaming table with thumbtacks in my back unless it’s WrestleMania, because I know that will be one that people are going to remember, if you just do it on RAW one week, well then it’s gone and it’s not going to be remembered because there’s 52 other RAW’s, or 51 other RAW’s during the year, WrestleMania only happens once a year.
If you’re a casual fan, you may be watching, if you’re a wrestling fan, you’re definitely watching and that’s the one that I know has the worldwide eyeballs on it, so that’s where you’ve got to go for it and man, you put me in a Hell in a Cell, I’ve got to go for it, even if I am 49 years old, that’s just part of the way that I’m wired, so I have some pretty extra stupid ideas and we’ll see if they let me try them, they probably won’t, but we’ll see.”
