Edge Talks Younger Wrestlers Not Selling Moves

Edge is in line for another huge WrestleMania main event match and he is taking opportunity given to him during his second run in WWE. He sees a trend of some wrestlers not selling big moves, and he realizes that takes away a lot of impact.

While speaking on Out of Character, Edge addressed some of the issues he has with wrestlers not selling moves. He’s a fan of selling and using that to tell stories, especially at his age. He would encourage others to do the same and get the most out of everything.

“I see someone take a German suplex and then come up fired up and I don’t get that. German suplexes hurt. So, why would we desensitize the audience into thinking that they don’t? They suck… so sell it like they suck.

“I’m trying to get mileage and show that. Say you watch UFC and a dude gets a liver shot and there’s that delayed reaction. With Jey Uso, that’s what I was trying to get across. Like, ‘maybe he just cracked a rib.'”

“That’s not out of the realm of possibility, like it could happen, especially with where I’m at in my career. Really just tell those kinds of stories where you are fighting from behind, fighting from underneath and you are trying to just get this thing done. You might not always get it done, but you are always going to try and show that effort.”

Edge has a lot of advice to give to pro wrestlers. He can also add a certain amount of veteran psychology to any match he is a part of. Don’t expect to see him no-selling a German suplex and he doesn’t care to see anyone else do it either.
