Edge Loves That Beth Phoenix Is Getting A Chance To Show Her Promo Skills, That They’re Working Together

The Grit Couple of Edge and Beth Phoenix will team up to face The It Couple of The Miz and Maryse this Saturday at the WWE Royal Rumble.

Ahead of the Royal Rumble, Edge sat down with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated to discuss all things WWE. When talking about being able to do an on-screen storyline with his wife Beth Phoenix, Edge said he never thought that something like this would be possible.

“We never thought this would be a possibility,” Edge said. “I was forced to retire [in 2011]. A year later, Beth retired. Then we started having kids. Coming back to wrestling was never on the docket for me, let alone come back and be asked, ‘What do you think about teaming together for a month?’ We’re having so much fun. Riding together, flying together. That’s the only part of the job that can be unenjoyable at times, but when you have your best friend next to you, it’s a lot more fun.”

Edge also believes that this run with Beth has allowed them to be more like their real-life selves, which he hopes makes it fun for the WWE Universe to experience along with them.

“This incarnation of Edge is the closest to Adam yet,” Edge admitted. “If we go out there and try to be this angry, tough couple, then there’s only so much there. When you see us out there having fun, that translates. The audience gets that, and hopefully keeps it from ever being cringy. Hopefully that makes it fun for the audience, too.”

One of the things Edge loves about this current storyline is allowing Beth to show the WWE Universe that she can talk and cut a promo as he believed her persona as The Glamazon back in the day didn’t call for her to speak very often.

“I’m loving that Beth is getting a chance to show she can talk,” Edge said. “Over the years, her character was always stoic, a heater, always ready to smash stuff. We still have that element, but what’s been great about this is she’s been able to show that when you put a microphone in her hand, she has that ability, especially after doing commentary the past three years. Personally, I think this all started after her Hall of Fame speech. That opened a lot of eyes. That led to commentary, and that led to this. To me, that’s the coolest part; we get to see her flex those muscles and spread those wings. And we get to do this together.”
