On this week’s episode of the podcast E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, WWE Hall Of Famer Adam “Edge” Copeland had plenty to say regarding the introduction of the new WWE 24/7 Championship. Featured below are some of the highlights of comments he made about the title during the show.
On the new WWE 24/7 Championship: “I think it is the ugliest championship ever created. I will start off by saying that. I will start off with the negatives. That thing is brutal. However, I think it’s great, I really do. I always thought the Hardcore Title was fun. And I think right now [WWE] programming, that’s exactly what it needs is fun. Because it was just a way to get characters that aren’t on the show necessarily all the time on the show, and show that they have some character. So a guy like Bobby Roode who is super-talented, he’s all of these things. But you can show that he’s an entertaining guy. I think it’s a really good opportunity for a lot of people. You look and see like, Crash Holly and Jerry Brisco, all of these people back when it was the Hardcore Title … just fun stuff.”
On his memories of the old WWE Hardcore Championship: “I remember that whole thing fondly. I was never involved in it at all, but I remember always wanting to watch it and see what they were gonna do. And to also come up with just some fun stuff. I think that’s what it boils down to. And most importantly, it gets some people into the mix and on the show that maybe aren’t getting that opportunity.”
On why he feels WWE couldn’t bring back the Hardcore Championship today: “I think we’re past that [calling things Hardcore], you know. And I think it dates it, and this kind of makes it a little more contemporary. I like the 24/7 deal, I just don’t like the actual championship. It looks — like, I could have made that.”
