Edge’s return to WWE was much different from his first run with the company. He is currently out with a torn triceps, but his storytelling with Randy Orton has been widely praised.
While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Edge revealed what he wanted to do with this run in the company. His mission was to approach things as a director. He crafted longer storylines with more emotional connection. He learned a lot in that 9 years away from WWE including how to drive a storyline with his acting.
The Rated R Superstar continued discussing how much freedom he has this time around. There are lines that he can’t cross, but overall he has almost ” full carte blanche” to craft his angles.
“I have been given almost full carte blanche. There’s a couple things that I tried to go against, but I realize that the lines were drawn, and that wasn’t going to get changed. So that was fine, but the promos, I’m writing them. The storyline arc, I put it together.”
“You have to sometimes make chicken salad because tore my triceps. So, what do we do here? How do we how do we navigate this? It’s all a work in progress really, but I’ve been given so much freedom, and that has been so much fun.”
Edge and Randy Orton likely aren’t done with each other. At this rate Edge and Randy Orton might feud for the remainder of Edge’s three-year WWE contract. There is a lot more that WWE could do including actually reuniting Rated RKO.
