Edge: Bret Hart Told Me He Loved The Last Man Standing Match, I Don't Care What Anyone Else Says

Edge returned for his first singles match in nine years when he battled Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing match at WrestleMania 36. The match came under criticism for running too long and some weren't thrilled with the "walk and brawl" style of the bout.

And while Edge has heard the criticisms, he values one opinion over everyone else's.

"I've heard there's feedback that it was too long. All of the feedback I've gotten personally has been all positive," Edge said on WWE After The Bell. "When I have Bret Hart call me and tell me that he loved it because it looked like a fight, I don't care what anybody else says from that point on because his opinion to me has more weight than absolutely everyone, anywhere. Nobody is going to top his opinion to me. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, it's wrestling, it's art. Randy and I have broad shoulders and we can weather the weight of a minuscule militia of malcontents who will want to complain about everything. Complain about the length of a wrestling match during a pandemic. Really? They're the same people who are going to complain that Bill and Brock go for four minutes. There's a segment of people who enjoy not enjoying things. I focus on positives. The fact that after nine years I was able to claw my way back here and I'm healthy enough to do this and go 40-minutes and take a DDT into the bed of a truck with a triple fusion, man, I came home, once I got out of quarantine, I hugged Beth and the girls and nothing is going to dull my shine at this point. I'm on top of the world."

Elsewhere during the interview, Edge revealed that he and Orton had to make some last minute changes due to the shooting schedule. But in the end, he was proud of the bout. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
