Edge Talks About Sami Zayn’s Keys To Success As A Heel

Edge recently spoke with Sports Illustrated for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, “The Rated-R Superstar” spoke about the keys to Sami Zayn’s success as a heel and talks about why he’s eager to share the ring with him.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On being eager to share the ring with Sami Zayn: “I would love to share the ring with Sami Zayn. And I would love to do it in Toronto. We’d keep it real simple. He can come out in his Habs jersey, I’ll come out in my Leafs jersey, and we’ll go from there.”

On the key to Zayn’s success: “There’s a key to Sami’s success. There is an element of truth to all his promos. As a heel, you have to have that nugget of truth. If you have it, you can push everything else forward. So his promos feel much more real. He’s doing incredible work. The crowd just knows to boo this guy. That’s to his credit. His promos, his character work—Sami is incredible. He’s gone from El Generico, then this plucky babyface with checkered tights and Mighty Mighty Bosstones–type music. Now he looks like some kind of dictator. I really dig it. Thinking about it, I can’t wait for it to happen.”
