“Look, I was part of the Ministry of Darkness with Edge. I kind of know where he’s going here. This is one of the most interesting things that WWE has done in years, aside of course from Theory debuting. Edge completely always reinvents himself. He’s done it time and time again and for him to be at the level of greatness that he has been for this long and to be better than he’s ever been is amazing to me.”
