Edge and Christian open today’s show by informing that they’re both quite tired. They’ve been very busy filming the new season of the Edge and Christian Show for the WWE Network, and Edge refers to the filming as “bedlam”. He points out that they’ve filmed lots of entertaining stuff and they’ve had some great cameos as well, but it’s been an exhausting filming schedule.

Christian takes a moment to speak about Owen Hart. He notes that Hart was a mentor to both him and Edge early on in their careers, and he took them under his wing and showed them some tricks of the trade. He says he’ll always appreciate what Hart did for them during that time and he’ll never be forgotten.

Edge and Christian welcome former WWE Writer, Tommy Blacha to the show.

Blacha informs that he was working as a Writer at “Conan” prior to his WWE career, and this was at a time when wrestlers were still sort of looked down upon in the television/film industry. Conan started suggesting that they bring more wrestlers on the show because he thought that’d be better than a bunch of second rate actors.

They proceeded to bring Big Show and Goldust on the show, and this led to Blacha striking up a conversation with Vince McMahon. McMahon offered him a consulting role with WWE for a few days for $1000 a day and he decided to take the offer. He did that for a couple of weeks and was even able to produce a couple of segments.
