• Edge Reveals Why He Never Got A Special WrestleMania Entrance, Takes A Shot At Triple H
During a recent Q&A on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Edge was asked why he never had Alter Bridge perform his theme song live at WrestleMania.
Below is what the Rated R Superstar said:
“We had talked about it, but the way it had worked out is that I was always a heel and I really believe that a heel shouldn’t have a badass band playing them to the ring. Because you’re gonna cheer that, it’s cool.
I don’t know, I see Triple H going out and high-fiving with Lemmy and Motorhead and I go, ‘what’s there to hate?’ If you’re a heel to me, you do everything within your power to be a heel and having a kickass metal band or a kickass rock band out there singing you to the ring, that’s tough to hate and that was just my mentality on that.”
