Edge and Christian open today’s show by giving credit to Kofi Kingston, who lasted over 60 minutes in a Gauntlet Match on Smackdown Live this week. Edge points out that Kingston has never failed to deliver when he’s been given an opportunity.
Christian adds that we sometimes forget how good all three members of The New Day are in the ring because they do so much comedy stuff. They both think that Kingston should have pinned A.J. Styles too, and then Randy Orton could have hit the RKO out of nowhere on Kingston and got some real heel heat.
Edge says he’s really happy for Ruby Riott, who’s been given a RAW Women’s Title opportunity at Elimination Chamber. Christian agrees, noting that the Riott Squad keep delivering each week, and Riott always gives it her all in the ring. He’s sure Rousey and Riott will have a great match on Sunday.
Edge couldn’t understand why WWE booked Becky Lynch to apologize to the authority figures at the end of RAW on Monday. He thought that apology and handshake took some wind out of Lynch’s sails and took a bite out of her anti-authority character. He knows that there’s still a story to be told here and he hopes he’s proven wrong in a few weeks time.
