WWE Asked Edge To Work On Creative During Triceps Injury WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Edge is one of the most experienced wrestling minds in the business, and has been one of the most respected members of the WWE locker room since his return to the company back at the 2020 Royal Rumble.

Edge suffered a tricep injury during the ‘Greatest Wrestling Match Ever’ against Randy Orton back at Backlash 2020, which shelved him for the remainder of that year.

Edge recently appeared on Busted Open Radio, where he spoke about being a veteran in the locker room and helping out younger talent since his return.

Edge said that WWE originally wanted him to be on the creative team during his injury, and why he didn’t feel like it was right for him.

He said:

“I’d like to think everybody knows that I’m there. What do you need? Do you want advice on something? They know I’m wide open. I don’t have my own locker room, I don’t have a bus, I’m in with the boys and we’re talking and working through things. When I tore my tricep, initially, they wanted me to be on the creative team. I tried it for three weeks and I felt, if I’m a talent, I shouldn’t be in there. I didn’t want to ostracize myself and it didn’t feel right. I was like, ‘Who needs help with promos? Give me seven people and I’ll Zoom with them an hour a day’ and try to help them find a semblance of something they can connect to and it will translate in the promo. I find, if you have one element of truth in the promo, you can bite into it and flavor the rest. That is fascinating and fun to me. I got helped so often early in my career by the Bad News Browns and Rick Martels and Sweet Daddy Sikis and Ron Hutchisons and Bret Harts. If I’m in a position now to parlay some of that knowledge and experience from 30 years of doing this, that’s another layer of this cake that I wanted to come back and do. I love that I get to wrestle Damian Priest on Monday in a high profile match. I like him as a talent and think there is more there, so let’s get to it. To be able to go from wrestling Bad News Brown back in 94 to Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair to Randy Orton, John Cena, Batista, the Undertaker, to now (Seth) Rollins and (Roman) Reigns and Priest and AJ (Styles). It’s a blast for me. I want to be wide open and I think our locker room understands that, no matter who you are, female or male locker room, I’m here if you want advice.”

Edge is set for his first match in Toronto in over a decade on tomorrow night’s Raw show, when he takes on Damian Priest of the Judgment Day.
