8. Edge Compares Jinder Mahal To Randy Orton From 15 Years Ago, On Being Impressed With Where The Singh Brothers Are Today

During a recent edition of E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, WWE Hall of Famer Edge discussed WWE Champion Jinder Mahal’s improvement in the ring, how Randy Orton worked with experienced guys to get better, The Singh Brothers & more. Below are the highlights:

On Jinder Mahal’s improvement & Randy Orton from 15 years ago:

“Here’s what people forget: that was Randy 15 years ago. That was Randy working Chris Benoit, teaming with Ric Flair, working against Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho, and teaming with Batista, working against me. Like, he was working against guys that were much more experienced in that level on the card and he was thrust into that too. And, obviously, he swam like Michael Phelps with it. Anyways, you do see the confidence Jinder is gaining and the small time lapse of trying to think of what to do next instead of going with instinct are starting to happen. That instinct, and timing, and not second-guessing yourself is starting to assimilate in and you can see it happening.”

On the success of The Singh Brothers:

“I think The Singh Brothers, I know them as Harv and Gurv, they’re doing great. I think they’re a great addition to the whole package. And I saw them at the pay-per-view and when I see them grabbing Bob Orton and Ric Flair’s face, I’m super proud of them because I know where they’ve come from and everything and for them to be able to be that involved and have the office to give them that nod of approval, I guess, or confidence, that they’d involve them with a guy like Orton, Bob Orton, and a guy like Ric Flair, and Larry Hennig. and Baron von Raschke, and all these guys sitting there, it’s got to be, I know for them, their mind is probably blown at what’s happening, but it’s a big part of Jinder’s deal.”
