• “It really blew my mind” – Renee Young Thinks WWE Legend Cut The Best Promos Of 2021
During a recent interview with SK Wrestling, former WWE announcer/interviewer Renee Young was asked who cut the best promos in pro-wrestling in 2021.
Renee picked WWE Legend Edge and had the following to say:
“I’m gonna say Edge on this one. I know it’s — it doesn’t quite lean on for this year, but I would say Edge just has such a great way of connecting with people. There’s just such an authenticity about what he does.
And again, another instance of like ‘Edge is wrestling again? What?’ And you can see that he loves what he does. He has such a passion for professional wrestling and being able to see him do it alongside his wife, with him and Beth [Phoenix] doing it together, is so cool.
But I think that Edge just has — he’s got such a way with words. He’s such a cool guy. He’s very interesting and I feel like all of that comes through in his promos, and what I was starting to say before is, at the beginning of the pandemic, we were trying to figure out how promos are still going to exist in this pandemic situation. This was before we even had the ThunderDome or anything. It was just empty arenas. You could hear a pin drop, it was super awkward.
And I remember watching Edge. He was preparing to do his promo and he was getting in his headspace, trying to figure out what he wanted to do and it was that straight-to-camera promo and we don’t get to see that often.
You know, a lot of times it’s like me in there interviewing somebody and then they look off not into the camera. Those pet peeves that people get, but to see Edge go straight to camera and just that fire and that passion that he has, it blew my mind. It really blew my mind.
I was like ‘he’s Edge.’ He’s a Hall Of Famer, he’s Edge, amazing. Of course, it’s great. But, I feel like the way that he was doing promos felt very innovative and it felt different.”
