Since returning at WWE Royal Rumble, Edge has been the talk of WWE, not only due to his return but also due to his current feud with Randy Orton.
Edge and Orton have created a layered feud that plays off the history of both men. Many have praised Edge for cutting some of the best promos in WWE over the last few years as he's built towards his WrestleMania 36 match against Orton.
Speaking to Inside The Ropes, Edge was asked if Paul Heyman, the Executive Director of WWE Raw, or anyone else had any hand in his feud with Orton.
"[Randy Orton and I] have been left alone. I've been doing this from 25 years, Randy's been doing it for 20. Nobody is gonna write a promo for me," Edge stated. "I don't work well that way and I think everyone understands that. But, it took years and years of proving it. So, if you try it and fall flat on your face, you might not get that chance again. But, over the years, I was allowed to fall flat on my face a bunch. We were given the freedom to do that then, which is amazing. Now, I don't know how much of that freedom is given to new people coming in. I'm not in that situation. I just know the situation I'm in, and I love it, because all I do is read, write, creating in my mind. All I do is think of stories, how they can play out, layers, what drives a character to do this, what drives a character to react that way. Why did the actor make that decision? Why did would the script read this way? Those are the questions constantly going on in my brain. That's how I try and peel back and dissect things. In doing that, it feels like training to comeback to wrestling and I really feel like now I have this whole arsenal that I didn't necessarily have before. Nine years from reps on television and movie sets has been indispensable. Once you're trained, get acting classes, because it is glaring who can and who can't."
While Edge was away from WWE for nine years, he landed roles on "Vikings" and "Haven" to add to his acting credits.
Edge is set to take on Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing match at WrestleMania 36.
