Edge recently spoke to Sports Illustrated in the lead-up to the Royal Rumble about how much fun he is having working with his real-life wife, Beth Phoenix.
Speaking about whether or not he imagined their in-ring pairing possible, Edge said:
“We never thought this would be a possibility. I was forced to retire [in 2011]. A year later, Beth retired. Then we started having kids. Coming back to wrestling was never on the docket for me, let alone come back and be asked, ‘What do you think about teaming together for a month?’
“We’re having so much fun. Riding together, flying together. That’s the only part of the job that can be unenjoyable at times, but when you have your best friend next to you, it’s a lot more fun.”
Edge feels that Beth Phoenix is finally getting an opportunity to show off a different side to her character in their feud with the ‘It Couple’ Miz and Maryse by spending more time on the mic, saying:
“I’m loving that Beth is getting a chance to show she can talk. Over the years, her character was always stoic, a heater, always ready to smash stuff. We still have that element, but what’s been great about this is she’s been able to show that when you put a microphone in her hand, she has that ability, especially after doing commentary the past three years. Personally, I think this all started after her Hall of Fame speech. That opened a lot of eyes. That led to commentary, and that led to this. To me, that’s the coolest part; we get to see her flex those muscles and spread those wings. And we get to do this together.”
Royal Rumble 2022 is live on Peacock from St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday, January 29, 2022. You can view a complete list of the announced entrants for the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches here.
