While appearing on WWE The Bump, The King Of Bros discussed the Royal Rumble match as he commentated to highlights as they played over him. He regards Edge as a Stallion and didn’t even want to strike him because he’s Edge.
“Edge is like I said a Stallion — good looking guy, he can work, he can move. To get in the ring — to be honest, I didn’t even wanna hit him — It’s Edge! You know? I’m just trying to take it in, but I didn’t want to take too long with my entrance because I know another guy’s gonna be coming out pretty soon [in the Royal Rumble match].”
“I wanted to get in there though so I kick the flip flops off and get to work. Of course, Baron Corbin comes in and I drop him with one kick. Boom, boom. McIntyre got the brunt of it, you know? That’s the World Champ right there and I’m just kicking him, kicking him — he can’t stop me.”
He commented on delievering a knee to Edge’s face durign the Royal Rumble saying “that’s the thing about me, you never turn your back on a Stallion.”
