Edge Compares His Feud With Roman Reigns With His Previous Feuds
WWE is trying to build this feud as intense as possible. But is it really as good as the previous feuds of Edge? The biggest feuds of him have to be he feuds with John Cena and The Undertaker. There were some other feuds of the Rated R Superstar as well which are mentionable, such as his feud with Kane, Batista, Chris Benoit, Matt Hardy etc.
But will his feud with Roman Reigns be as good as the mentioned feuds? Honestly it is not up to that height yet. And it looks like he is doing this feud just to put over Roman Reigns little more. It does not seem like WWE would allow him to beat Roman Reigns for the title at this stage of his career. So it would never be up to that height.
Edge recently appeared on Talking Smack where he spoke about his current rivalry with Roman Reigns and he compared it with his previous feuds. Here is what he had to say;
“I need to dip into a different place. And I need to get there when there’s a particular talent in front of me. And throughout the years, I think I’ve been able to find that place and it can be a dangerous place to find, because the line between good and evil is paper-thin.
“And there are certain talents that causes me to have to cut through that paper and bring out a side of Edge that isn’t really healthy, probably for me and for a lot of other people. Some talents like The Undertaker, talents like John Cena, talents like Roman Reigns.
“I know what he brings to the table, and I know he calls himself the Head of the Table and I can appreciate everything that he’s trying to say because he believes everything he says. But I’ve been there, done that. I’ve won 31 championships in this company. That’s more than anyone else, and I’m sorry, I don’t count the 24/7 Championship.
“So I’ve won 31 championships here. Nobody else has done that, and there’s a reason and it’s because I need to get to that place, and I can get there. And at Money in the Bank this Sunday, I don’t fully think Roman fully understands or comprehends what I bring with me.
“I try not to chew on regret. As soon as it’s done, I spit it out. And I have to move on. This one stuck with me. It bothered me. And I realized I needed to do something to change the narrative, to change what was going on inside of here and what was tap-dancing around in the brain. There wasn’t doubt, there was anger and I needed to manifest that anger and use it in a positive way, but it took me some time to get there.
“So I needed to kind of collect myself and I haven’t had to do that before so it was a new place for me to find, but I learned something from it too. There was a lot of self-reflection, but never doubt. One thing I don’t do is doubt myself. The second you doubt yourself, you’re dead in the water.
“So I knew when I came back, I had to find the guy that would slap John Cena’s dad. I had to find the guy that had no problem facing Undertaker in Hell in a Cell, even though I got chokeslammed to hell. I got up and continued.
“I needed to find that guy and I know I’m talking about myself in the third person here but truly at times I really have to try and compartmentalize that. And when I’m out there, man, I’m unhinged. I go someplace else and once I go there it takes a while to get out of that.”
