Edge on up-and-coming talent not getting over in WWE

Last updated

When WWE Hall of Famer and SmackDown Superstar Edge appeared on The Kurt Angle Show podcast he discussed several topics on the show, including how up-and-coming WWE Superstars find it hard to ‘get over’ in the modern pro wrestling climate.

‘I do appreciate the different set of circumstances that talent have to try to get themselves over in nowadays because I think it’s more difficult,’ Edge began.

‘I really, really do and having come back now and seeing it first hand, I’m like wow, this is harder to try and present your story and present your character because the format has changed due to necessity” Edge continued.

‘When I say more difficult, I mean for people coming into the industry now or coming into the company now” the former World Heavyweight Champion noted.

“I have a body of work, so I don’t have to go through those same challenges because they’ve seen it, they know it and I can already come in and I’m already established.”

“I’m talking if I were starting out now, oh man, and it was difficult when I started out back then too. I feel for a lot of young folks and I really do say just pick my brain because I can’t fully grasp what you’re having to encounter” Edge revealed, saying how he tries to help younger talent.

“I’m not at that stage in my career at the same time but I can at least give you some guidelines and some tent-poles to help you feel like you’re not drowning’ the Rated R Superstar concluded.
