WWE Superstar Edge was recently interviewed by Screen Rant to promote his newly-released film Money Plane.
During the interview, Edge was asked for his opinion on the competition between AEW and WWE.
The WWE Hall of Famer responded by saying that:
I think competition in anything is always a good thing. I think it forces people to up their game and not rest on their laurels. I think, if I’m looking at it from the performer’s aspect, it’s another place to be able to ply your trade, and that’s amazing. That’s never a bad thing. Just imagine if there was only one studio, if all there was was MGM. I like the fact that there’s a bunch of different studios, and I think the same goes for wrestling. I think it ups everyone’s game. As a wrestling fan, that’s never a bad thing! To have, you know, a lot of different options. Now’s a great time to be a wrestling fan. It’s a really good time to be a performer, too. I look at it from the aspect of, I’m someone who always wants to be the best. I always want my character to stand out. That’s even more so if there’s more competition. Personally, I think it’s a good thing.
Edge returned to WWE at the 2020 Royal Rumble but is currently on the sidelines with a torn triceps.
Though he is at home rehabbing the injury, there is no timetable for his return to the ring.
