• Edge Talks About How A Feud With Shawn Michaels Helped Him
During a recent edition of E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, WWE Hall of Famer Edge discussed his storyline with Shawn Michaels when he first turned heel and how much that helped him.
Below is what Edge said:
“I think that was coming off of the Cyber Sunday or Taboo Tuesday, or whatever that pay per view was where fans voted on who would face Triple H in the world title match. I think that is where the whole angle started. That was when I was first starting to turn heel and was purely focused on that world title. Everything for the character, and Shawn Michaels was the first guy that I worked against with the incarnation of the character. I think we worked a Royal Rumble opener and had a lot of fun and then we had a Street Fight on Raw–I want to say it was in Rhode Island.I obviously always enjoyed working against Shawn. We had a lot of house show matches throughout the years that were kind of thrown together. I remember one in Laredo, Texas, which is a hot arena, about a 8-10,000 seat arena, and I remember we just went out there and put out 35 minutes and had a lot of fun by going out there and having Shawn Michaels and I just wing it. It was always a lot of fun.I don’t know how much creative was put together with our angle with the exception of me being an angry guy pursuing the title, who felt he should be world champion, and I think that Shawn was given the challenge from creative to get this kid over, because if it doesn’t happen with you then it’s probably not going to happen. Now I know that it was the challenge that he was given if this could work or not, so I guess he helped me prove that I could so thank you Shawn Michaels!”
