Edge and Christian open today’s show speaking about the upcoming Chris Jericho/Kenny Omega match at WrestleKingdom. Christian thinks this is a very exciting thing for the wrestling business, and he thinks the business could use more stuff like this. He thinks it’s a good time to be a wrestling fan right now, with NJPW raising their stock since they started airing their product on AXSTV in the US.
Edge points out that WrestleKingdom is a stacked event so WWE really needs to step up their game to ensure that WrestleMania is must-see this year. He points out that it’d be amazing if Jericho worked both WrestleKingdom and WrestleMania within a couple of months of each other.
Speaking about A.J. Styles’ WWE Title win on last week’s Smackdown Live, Edge thought this was ‘hotshot’ booking. He thought WWE rushed this Title change but Christian says he liked it because nobody expected it. He thought Mahal had a good Title run as a legitimate heel, and Styles was the right guy to take the Title from him.
