E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness Recap w/ EC3 – Christian’s Initial Impression of EC3, WWE Release & Climbing TNA’s Ladder, How Much Did Edge’s Trench Coats Cost? More!
Edge opens today’s show by discussing the trench coats he’d wear to the ring during his WWE career. He informs that each coat had their own slight differences, and he’d often come up with the ideas himself. He says he still has them all and he doesn’t want to give them away to people for nothing. They cost $3,500 each and weighed about 40 pounds.
Christian laughs and says that’s why his gimmick was wearing sunglasses. He discusses the origins of him wearing sunglasses to the ring. He recalls being at a Denny’s somewhere in California many years ago and a fan came up with a pair of huge sunglasses on. Christian asked where the fan found the glasses, but he was about to leave town and couldn’t make a stop to buy some of the glasses.
The fan urged Christian to take his pair of sunglasses and said he didn’t want any money for them, adding that if the sunglasses get used on television it would all be worth it. That’s how Christian’s obsession with funky sunglasses started.
Christian adds that when he was part of The Brood he wore big, fluffy shirts. When he transitioned out of The Brood he felt naked without a shirt on, so he began wearing the mesh shirts that he wore for the majority of his attitude era career. He looks back now with regret over the fact that he wore those mesh shirts. Edge laughs and adds that he regrets not wearing a shirt during one point in his career when he stopped working out, because he’s not happy with his physique at that time.
