Edge Would Have Liked To Wrestle Sami Zayn

Edge thinks Sami Zayn is super talented.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Edge discussed a few guys he would want to face in the ring, but The Underdog from the Underground is one in particular that Edge feels deserves the spotlight.

"If you put a heel “Rated R Superstar” with Sami Zayn as a babyface, that would be something I would like to do. Seth is already set and already in a position where he’s OK, but if I ever came back, I’d like to wrestle somebody that I feel deserves to be in a top spot and show why. Sami is a guy I look at and go, “Man, that guy is so super talented," said Edge.

Since his retirement, WWE Hall of Famer, Edge, has been focusing on his acting career. He starred in a film with Lana earlier this year, billed as Adam Copeland, his real name. The 43-year-old Edge says he no longer has any notions of wrestling again. 

"I put a window, for sure. To me, the window was 40. I was going to be done at 40 no matter what. I just thought that was the time. There is only so much abuse you can put your body through, and we really put our bodies through a lot with those ladder matches and TLC matches. For a bunch of years there on Smackdown, I was wrestling Undertaker one night, Kane the next night, then it was Big Show and then it was Batista. As a bumping heel champion, that’s a lot of bumps. I always capped my career at 40. I never wanted to be one of those guys where it was like, ‘Aw, he was great,’ or have guys look at the run sheet and go, ‘Ah , OK. I have to wrestle him tonight.’ I wanted a young guy like Dolph Ziggler to be excited to wrestle me at Royal Rumble [in 2011]. I was excited to wrestle the young guys and show them some stuff. I still wanted it to be at the point where they would listen, not at the point where I was past my prime. So 40 was my window," said Edge. 

Recently, Edge tweeted about a brainstorming session for another season of his WWE network show The Edge and Christian Show. He confirmed the second season with Sports Illustrated.
