Adam Copeland, professionally known as Edge, spoke to Screenrant for the promotion of his upcoming movie: Money Plane. There he spoke about the ‘Wednesday Night Wars’ and the overall competition between WWE and All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
Edge believes that competition is always a good thing, as it forces the parties to step up their game and go to any length necessary to attract attention of the audience.
“I think competition in anything is always a good thing. I think it forces people to up their game and not rest on their laurels. I think, if I’m looking at it from the performer’s aspect, it’s another place to be able to ply your trade, and that’s amazing. That’s never a bad thing. Just imagine if there was only one studio, if all there was was MGM,” Edge remarked.
“like the fact that there’s a bunch of different studios, and I think the same goes for wrestling. I think it ups everyone’s game. As a wrestling fan, that’s never a bad thing! To have, you know, a lot of different options. Now’s a great time to be a wrestling fan. It’s a really good time to be a performer, too. I look at it from the aspect of, I’m someone who always wants to be the best. I always want my character to stand out. That’s even more so if there’s more competition. Personally, I think it’s a good thing,” the multiple times World Champion added.
Edge remembered his younger years, when there were many Wrestling promotions to see.
“The era that I grew up, there was all kinds of different promotions. That was always fun and exciting, to go to the local variety store and pick up these wrestling magazines and see these wrestlers who I’d never seen before, but now I knew they were out there, because of these magazines. That, to me, was really fun. Then, when they’d eventually make it to the WWE, and I’d see them for the first time, I thought, ‘Oh, I kind of know this person! I know this character!’ I miss that. I think it’s changed, definitely. But the point being, I think competition is good,” The Rated-R Superstar recalled.
