Edge Reveals He And Randy Orton Had To Scrap Their Plans For The Last Man Standing Match At WWE WrestleMania 36

They had to change everything...

On night two of WrestleMania 36, Edge competed in his first one on one match in nine years against his former friend Randy Orton. The two Superstars battled for 36 minutes in a Last Man Standing match which came to an end after The Rated-R Superstar hit Orton with a hellacious Con-Chair-To. 

Edge appeared on the most recent episode of After The Bell and told Corey Graves that he and Orton had to scrap all of their plans for the match when they arrived at the WWE Performance Center. The Ultimate Opportunist explained they planned to use drones and fight across rooftops, but because the match was filmed during the day, it meant they weren't able to go outside and  the bout effectively became a "40 minute audible."

The Rated-R Superstar said: "The time that we filmed it didn't coordinate with the ideas we had. So, we find that out on the day, hours before. So, we had to change everything, and that's truly what you saw was a 40 minute audible, and I'm proud of that."

He later added: "Initially, I had ideas of drones and going on rooftops, and again, we're filming during sunlight so that's not going to work. 'Okay, lets shift focus here. How do we do this? No, right. It's a fight. Let's just go fight, and that's what we did."
