E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness Recap w/ Bobby Fish – Tommaso Ciampa’s Injury, Teaming with O’Reilly, Forming Undisputed Era, More!
Edge says he was bummed to hear that Tommaso Ciampa will be out of action for some time after undergoing neck surgery. He points out that Ciampa has been competing at a high level for a long time, and sometimes the body needs time to heal. He’s sure that WWE can still conclude the Gargano storyline when Ciampa returns, but the main thing right now is for Ciampa to get healthy.
Edge likes WWE pairing up Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins. He says they’re both great singles performers, but maybe they can accomplish more together in the tag team division. Christian also liked the quick build to The Shield’s reunion over the last couple weeks since Roman Reigns’ return.
Edge and Christian welcome NXT’s Bobby Fish to the show.
Fish says that as a fan, his favourite era was the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, with Dusty Rhodes and the NWA running wild. He watched a lot of wrestling with his father, and though his fandom started with WWE and Hulk Hogan, as he got older he watched more NWA.
He informs that he trained in martial arts and wanted to be a ninja as a young teenager, but as he got older he started playing football and wanted to be a professional football player. His size hurt his chances in football, and as his college football career ended he began thinking about a career in professional wrestling.
