Edge hasn't had his first singles match since coming out of retirement after nine years, but he's already looking towards the future.
Those in NXT are looked at as "the future" of WWE, though many in WWE's third brand are well established in the company. Speaking on a media call (via Sportskeeda), Edge gave his thoughts on the gold brand.
"There are so many talents, you can seriously point to everyone on the roster. Obviously (Tomasso) Ciampa and I have a very close relationship, we're both 'neck' guys for a lack of a better term. So he's picking his brain a lot and I love it because he cares a lot and he'll try the ideas too. I love [Johnny] Gargano. To me, 'the guy' who is dialed in and completely found what it is that he's supposed to do is Finn Balor. It's exciting to watch him right now. To me, he and Gargano set the template for what an NXT match should be going forward."
He continued, "You got your workhorses like Adam Cole who's just out there week-in, week-out, night after night in the grind and you just got to tip your hat to that guy. Keith Lee is so impressive - I'd love to be able to get in the ring with that guy and just show him exactly what he is and how he can be. Velveteen Dream to me is just this raw, completely natural character - he has just found his character and that's so exciting to watch. It's not just all about moves, about 84 superkicks. He has tapped into his character and it's really fun to watch and to see where he takes that - the future is good."
