Edge Comments on Changing His WWE Theme, Alter Bridge Live Performance & More

As noted earlier, former WWE Superstar Edge spoke with Journey of a Frontman. Here are a few highlights:

WWE replacing Rob Zombie’s “Never Gonna Stop” as his theme with “Think You Know Me”: “Replacing ‘Never Gonna Stop’ wasn’t my choice. The copyright ran out on Never Gonna Stop. And the way that started is, I tore my labrum in my shoulder, but I didn’t get surgery, so I ended up having a month off. So I threw a shot in the dark. I always hated that ‘You Think You Know Me’ music because it never fit me and what I actually listen to. I had actually said that I wanted to use this Black Label Society song and they were like, ‘Okay, well here’s our version of it.’ And it just sounded like a bad ripoff with this cheesy voice. The guys that did Big Show’s music and they did this version of Black Label and it was just not good. It just sounded like a bad ripoff. Rob Zombie, he had a new album coming out, ‘Can we get this?’ A shot in the dark. Next week, they brought me a copy of the CD, The Sinister Urge, and I was just like, ‘Oh, really? Holy s–t!’ I didn’t think that was gonna happen. So I had four tracks and they said the album hasn’t been released, so you can’t let anybody hear this. And I said, ‘Okay. Never Gonna Stop.’ I come back from an injury, that makes sense. So I used it, really, really liked it. And then when I came back from the neck injury, they were like, ‘Okay, well we can’t use it.’ And also if you watch DVDs, it’s never on the DVDs. So they piped in my original music.

“When I was out with my neck injury, I met Mark Tremonti. I met him at a Metallica show, actually. And I went back to his place after and he played me what would end up being the first Alter Bridge album. I heard Metalingus and I was like, ‘Dude, can I use that when I come back?’ And he said, ‘Yeah! Of course!” So that ended up being the genesis of it and when I heard it, it was actually Mark singing. It hadn’t been Myles yet. So it was in its infancy, but I had heard that song. I was like, ‘Okay, that’s gonna be what I come to the ring to.’ And that’s how that all started.”

If there was ever discussion of Alter Bridge playing his theme live at a WWE event: “My whole idea to me is if you’re a heel in wrestling, you should not having a band playing for when you come out and people will react in a positive way. And I never wanted them to react in a positive way. So it never made sense to me when Motorhead showed up and did Triple H’s song, you’re supposed to be a heel. They’re now gonna cheer you because you just had Motorhead playing you to the ring. So, to me, it just never fit. I was never a babyface at the point where it would have worked out. So, we kind of missed the boat on that. Looking back at Wrestlemania 24, I wrestled Undertaker in Orlando, which is Alter Bridge’s hometown. That would have been the perfect night to do it. But I was the bad guy. If I had done that differently, it would have been a very cool moment for all of us.”
