Edge is enjoying the collaborative effort that is the creative process in professional wrestling.
Since returning at the 2020 Royal Rumble, Edge has been very open about wanting to work with as many names as possible. When working with names such as Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, Daniel Bryan, and Jey Uso, a think tank is created with input from all walks of life and all levels of experience in the wrestling industry.
Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Edge explained how much he enjoys the creative process and even credits Jey Uso with the idea for the “Glasgow Grin,” the object-assisted Crossface that has been the crux of Edge’s most recent interactions with The Bloodline.
“I got to share a ring with Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns,” said Copeland. “Before that, me and Bryan, we’d been in the ring for something like four minutes together, so that was something I’d always wanted to do. Roman is just operating on a whole other level and he’s still getting better. Every week, I’m reminded of how good he truly is.
“That match felt like it flew by, and it was so much fun to collaborate with Roman, Bryan, Paul Heyman, Jey Uso, and Michael Hayes. My favorite part of the match was that ‘Glasgow Grin’ I got on Roman. That whole sequence was actually Jey Uso’s idea. It was so cool to have such great minds collaborate about something we’re all so passionate about.”
Edge looks to hopefully capture his first WWE Universal Championship in a match against Roman Reigns at WWE Money in the Bank on Sunday, July 18, 2021.
Fightful will have live coverage of Money in the Bank beginning with the kickoff show at 7 p.m. eastern time.
