E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness – Beth Phoenix’s Return to the Ring, Christian’s “The Lock” Gimmick, What They Did With Their First WWE Pay Check, More!

A listener writes in and asks them who they think has the potential to be a big main roster star from NXT right now. Christian points out that Adam Cole is a great speaker and that will help him considerably on the main roster. Edge notes that Velveteen Dream has ridiculous upside, but he thinks the future is bright for a lot of those guys and girls if they’re given a chance to succeed on the main roster.

Another listener writes into the show and asks them if Edge had to clear his famous spear off the ladder to Jeff Hardy with anyone backstage before executing the move. Edge says he doesn’t really recall having to clear anything for those TLC matches back in the day. Their mandate was to create something special, but to keep it safe.

He jokes that maybe the things they did during those matches made WWE realize that they needed to become more involved moving forward with how the matches were being laid out.

Another listener asks them what they did with their first WWE paycheque. Edge says he simply put his in the bank. Christian says he was dealing with a collection agency at the time because he owed money on a student loan. He called the agency, gave them a piece of his mind, and paid off the loan in full.

That sums up today’s episode of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
