Coming out of an absolutely stacked SummerSlam weekend, one of the bigger stories was Edge's return to physicality when he delivered a Spear to Elias during the SummerSlam Kickoff show.
Speaking with Christian about the moment during the latest episode of their podcast, Edge describes what it felt like to be back in action and learning that it was going to happen just 15 minutes prior to everything going down:
"Literally, five minutes before I saw you I was asked, 'what do you think, do you want to do a promo?' so, it was probably 15 minutes before you saw me go out there. It was all last minute. Poor Elias had to go and write a song in like 15 minutes, so that tells you how much of a pro he is."
Edge also spoke about knowing his limitations and how acting has helped build his confidence as his neck far as his neck is concerned.
“What people don’t know is I do all my fight scenes, so I’ve actually done a couple of Spears acting. with that, there’s contact and I’m hitting stunt guys like I normally would. For Haven, I did one to Kurrgan, and we were landing on concrete.
"I think in terms of my neck there’s a lot of miseducation. When I first found out with my retirement speech, I said what I knew at that point. I’ve since learned a lot more. I’m a highly physical person. I fell off a mountain bike a few weeks ago. They don’t give me a stunt double.
"I know where I’m at and I’ve seen my neck guys down here and they’ve told me the do's and don'ts and I’m not in the midst of being told I have to retire, you know? So, I'm much more emotionally aware and hearing everything and going 'okay, what my limitations are going forward?' And hitting the Spear is not one of them.'"
