Edge is set for his first WrestleMania match in nine years when he clashes with Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing match at WrestleMania 36. Unlike past WrestleMania matches Edge has competed in, this one will be totally different as it will take place with no live audience due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to Metro UK, Edge discussed why WWE continues to run shows and how they create an escape for fans.
"This year more than any year we are all in the midst of something we have never experienced before, the world really needs outlets. Whether that is books, whether that is movies, whatever it is, just to be able to try and forget and laugh and have fun and remember what it is to be human. As long we can try and be as responsible and as safe as we can, why wouldn’t we try and do this for everyone? As a performer, that’s what we want to do. ‘If we can do that and if people watch and can have fun for a few hours then our mission is accomplished. Here’s how I’ve always looked at this job. My responsibility is to make you forget your responsibilities for two or three hours a day, or during that show," he said.
Edge showed up to WWE Raw on Monday after driving 17 hours to deliver his challenge to Randy Orton. Orton is expected to respond on this Monday's episode of WWE Raw.
