During the post WrestleMania 34 episode of the E&C Pod Of Awesomeness, Edge and Christian broke down what they thought was the best match of the night and more. Below are some of the highlights with a h/t to Wrestling Inc for the transcription.
Thoughts On Asuka vs Charlotte
“I thought Asuka and Charlotte had an amazing match.” Christian continued, “I think it’s one of the best women’s matches I’ve ever seen. I thought they told a great story and I was surprised by the finish, honestly. But in a good way, like, I like being surprised, like, I like it when things like that happen. And I think it was the right time for Asuka’s [undefeated]streak to end. And, honestly, I think this will help her move forward more than it will hurt her to lose this match.”
“It was so, so good and I watched it with Beth.” Edge recalled, “she was just so happy, so proud. She looked at me. She goes, ‘that was the best women’s match I’ve ever seen.’ And, man, but I hate putting that label of ‘best women’s match’. It was just a damn good wrestling match.”
“It was my favorite match on the show by a large margin, and, again, everything’s subjective, but I loved this match,” Edge declared. “When the finish happened, I was shocked. I had goosebumps. Not only was the match so, so great, but the finish was unexpected, but perfect. It was a great time for it because it was unexpected, but it wasn’t unexpected like a Bill [Goldberg]/Brock [Lesnar] five-second or twenty-second match at Survivor Series unexpected. This was after a long, crazy, hard-fought back-and-forth.”
Edge Gives New Thoughts On Asuka
“For everybody that [has]been [asking], ‘why don’t you get the Asuka thing?’ I get it now. That was a spectacular match and she played her part so well.” Edge admitted, “I’m on the Asuka train. I get it. I’m going back to that match again, aren’t I? I just thought it was a great match.”
What Match Does Edge Think Will Main Event WrestleMania 35?
“You now have a match next year with Charlotte and Ronda that can main event WrestleMania. I honestly feel with how that turned out, that Asuka and Charlotte could have main evented it and everyone would’ve walked home happy. But I truly believe that the climate is right that it’s finally time and you have the right two. Those two could main event WrestleMania after seeing Ronda’s performance and seeing how well she performed.” Edge predicted, “I truly think, next year, I’m calling it now, you can have Charlotte and Ronda Rousey main event WrestleMania. And I truly think that’s the main event next year. I really do. Just saying.”
