Edge Discusses His Numerous Title Reigns, Why He Doesn’t Tweet
The latest issue of WWE Magazine features an interview with Edge and the “Rated-R Superstar” is asked why anyone should care that he’s held the World Championship ten times (now eleven).
“I never expected to be able to say that I’m a 10-time World Champion. I was hoping to one day say I was a one-time World Champion,” he replied. “Growing up, that number was impossible to reach. It was a different time, place and climate then. Things have changed. It’s harder to recreate yourself and stay relevant. I guess I’ve changed enough to stay relevant, which is one of the hardest things to do. For me, anything past one title is pretty much gravy on top of mashed potatoes.”
He also explains why he has yet to join Twitter.
“I will never be on Twitter,” he said. “Here’s my thing: I really don’t want people to know what I’m doing. I’m off the grid by choice. It doesn’t mean I have anything against anybody. If I’m out and I see you, let’s have a conversation. Cool. But I’m not going to tell you where I am. I’m not the most technological guy in the world, nor will I ever be. I will be in the mountains growing a massive beard at some point and hiking with my dogs and thinking about climbing Mount Everest. This is all ties back into my attack on the Raw GM’s computer. There was real frustration there. I’m not a computer guy. I can appreciate what computers do, but all I need is e-mail.”
Finally, Edge discusses how he remains inventive after several years inside the squared circle.
He says, “One of the most difficult elements is figuring out how to do new things within our parameters. How can I stop Kane in a Last Man Standing Match? How can I defeat three other guys in a TLC bout? How can I win a match when my signature move has been “outlawed”? Those are problems that I really enjoy solving. I love creative solutions, and I don’t like to take the easiest path.”
