But I’m glad to see he did, and of course, a possibility of a match with Edge, now that it’s back on the table, is something really appealing and I really hope it happens. I just hope I’m in the ring with him in any way shape or form. I’d be happy to be his tag team partner once. I’d love to wrestle him.”
