Edge opens up on the storyline
Edge recently joined in as a special guest on The Kurt Angle Show and talked about variety of topics. The former WWE Champion went on to reflect about the controversial storyline involving him, Matt Hardy and Lita. He spoke about how the storyline did not see any barrier between the real life and on-screen feud.
The feud had ultimately cost Matt Hardy when he became furious and ended up getting fired by WWE. But, he was hired back so that he could feud with Edge and Lita back in 2005. The former WWE Champion further mentioned he was not comfortable in doing the storyline.
Edge said: “I think when everything with Matt [Hardy] and [Lita], I didn’t enjoy any of that, that was hard. It was a position that I put myself in and thought okay, I made my bed, I just got to deal with this.”
The Rated-R Superstar revealed how they overcame the animosity and used the real life feud to their advantage. He also talked about the matches which turned out to be great as they were top in-ring competitors.
He added: “Then I thought okay, we’re here now, how can we pull a positive? Let’s make some money. That’s what we did, this is the situation, now let’s try and get something good out of this pretty lousy scenario, the matches were [good] though because I loved working with Matt.”
It is to be noted that the feud had been helpful to the stars to cement their status in the singles competition.
But, WWE Hall of Famer Lita got the worst of it as she had previously claimed she often receives backlash and held responsible for the controversy. She had also claimed getting called ‘double standard’.
Edge recently squared off against Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship at Sunday’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view but he was unsuccessful in dethroning The Tribal Chief.
