WWE SmackDown Superstar and Hall of Famer Edge recently spoke to Sports Illustrated. The former World Heavyweight Champion discussed a number of topics during the show, including who came up with the ‘Glasgow Grin’ move where he uses part of a chair to submit his opponents.
‘I got to share a ring with Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns,’Â Edge began, discussing his WrestleMania 36 main event match for the Universal Championship.
‘Before that, me and Bryan, we’d been in the ring for something like four minutes together, so that was something I’d always wanted to do” Edge continued.
“Roman is just operating on a whole other level and he’s still getting better. Every week, I’m reminded of how good he truly is” the Rated R Superstar noted, praising the ‘Head of The Table.’

‘That match felt like it flew by, and it was so much fun to collaborate with Roman, Bryan, Paul Heyman, Jey Uso, and Michael Hayes. My favorite part of the match was that ’˜Glasgow Grin’ I got on Roman” Edge noted.
“That whole sequence was actually Jey Uso’s idea” the SmackDown Superstar revealed. “It was so cool to have such great minds collaborate about something we’re all so passionate about.”
