WWE Hall of Famer Edge recently appeared on Logan Paul's popular podcast, Impulsive, where he discussed many subjects, most notably his journey, and experiences during this final chapter of his illustrious wrestling career.
During the conversation, one of the most intriguing topics was the highly anticipated Hell in a Cell match between Edge and Finn Balor at WrestleMania 39. The Rated-R Superstar revealed that the epic encounter was initially slated to occur at the Royal Rumble event.
However, Edge felt that the match deserved the grand stage of WrestleMania, which was just around the corner.
Edge's Vision: Brood vs. Demon Showdown
The 11-time World Champion elaborated on his concept and vision for the match, stating that he had pitched the idea of Brood versus Demon.
This picture would bring together the dark, sinister personas of both wrestlers. With Edge's Brood character from the late '90s and Finn Balor's Demon King persona, the Hell in a Cell stipulation seemed the perfect setting for their showdown.
Edge explained his thought process: "So last year, I was like, if I get to do this character again, this is what I'd like to do, and again, I had pitched the idea. I was like, 'If you got Bálor and me, we're missing the opportunity here if we don't do Brood versus Demon and do it in Hell in a Cell.'
So initially, it was going to be at Royal Rumble. I was like, 'Mania. Mania's right around the corner. Maybe we should save it for that.' " Edge's insistence on postponing the match to WrestleMania highlights his dedication to delivering the best possible performance for the fans.
It also demonstrates his understanding of the importance of timing and the significance of the grand stage in elevating the impact of a match. Moreover, Edge's ability to recognize the potential in a storyline and his creative input further prove why he is regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers ever.
The Hell in a Cell match between Edge and Finn Balor at WrestleMania 39 is now being billed as one of the most anticipated matches in recent memory. The clash of the dark, supernatural personas, combined with the brutal and unforgiving nature of the Hell in a Cell structure, is expected to leave fans on the Edge of their seats.
