Royal Rumble 2021 winner Edge recently spoke with CBS Sports and revealed which wrestler he’d like to challenge at this year’s WrestleMania.
The Rated R Superstar returned at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view and has teased a match with WWE Champion Drew McIntyre on Raw this week.
Edge also appeared on NXT recently and had a confrontation with the NXT Champion Finn Balor, teasing a title match. He’ll likely be at Friday Night SmackDown this week to tease a match with the Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
While speaking to CBS, Edge talked about his possible options at WrestleMania. He said he’d make a great storyline with each champion.
“To me, I can’t go wrong,” he said. “They each bring something different to the table and just as appealing in terms of the kind of story they can tell. They’d all be different stories and I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them. It’s just what’s going to be best for business. I don’t know what that is, honestly. With Drew, you can follow his road to get back here and my road to get back here. You have two guys who didn’t know they’d ever get back and who are now here and possibly main eventing WrestleMania for the WWE championship. That’s compelling.”
Speaking about the current Universal Champion, Edge said Reigns brings really interesting things to the table. He said it’d be a completely different storyline with Reigns and he’d like it.
“Equally compelling is a guy like Roman Reigns, who I feel has been unleashed and been allowed to get the guy out that I always knew was in there. It’s really exciting to see a performer clicking on so many levels and telling amazing stories. I look at that and I think, ‘Whoa, man, that would be fun.’ It’s an entirely different dynamic than Drew, and I would be and an entirely different story. Maybe it’s not based on respect — it’s Rocky and Apollo Creed. Then I see a guy like Balor who has never been better, and that’s exciting too. It’s an embarrassment of riches, is what it is.”
