• Gangrel Explains Why He Wasn’t Used For Edge’s Match At WrestleMania 39
Leading up to WrestleMania 39, multiple sources stated that WWE is set to bring back WWF Attitude Era Veteran Gangrel for his former Brood partner Edge’s entrance.
The reports also stated that he would’ve gotten physical with Damian Priest during the Hell in a Cell match between Edge and ‘The Demon’ Finn Balor.
As you know by now, that didn’t end up happening, but no explanation was given by insider sources as to why WWE Officials changed their mind.
During a recent interview on ‘Reffin’ It Up with Brian Hebner’, Gangrel was asked if WWE even contacted him regarding WrestleMania Hollywood.
Here’s what he had to say:
“They may have discussed it, but my phone never rang. I started reading all the stuff, people were calling me, so I wrote Adam (Edge) ‘Do you know this started?’.
He made a joke, ‘these writers think they know everything’. I laughed. I tried to tell a guy to tell them ‘No, I wasn’t doing it’, but he still ran the story anyway.
He goes ‘To be fair, it was pitched, it just never happened’.
It was pitched, but I never heard about it. I didn’t know anything about it. They never reached out to me. I guess, Edge is always pitching something for me.
I think I pitched SummerSlam for me, but it got shot down.”
