Edge says he’s been writing his own promos since WWE return

The Rated R Superstar has enjoyed a high level of creative freedom since his return to WWE, and it shows.

Since returning to WWE back at the Royal Rumble, Edge has been a bright spot on Monday nights. During a recent interview on Busted Open, the Rated R Superstar explained at least part of why that is: he’s been writing all of his own promos, and even says that for the most part, he is responsible for the storyline arc of his feud with Randy Orton.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly wrestling podcast, PTW!

From the interview:

I have been given almost full carte blanche. There are a couple things that I tried to go against, but I realize that the lines were drawn, and that wasn’t going to get changed. So that was fine, but the promos, I’m writing them. The storyline arc, I put it together. … I’ve been given so much freedom, and that has been so much fun.

Edge’s promos have felt gritty, real, and have added an extra layer to his feud with Orton, which quickly became must-see television on Raw. OK, so it may not have actually given us the Greatest Wrestling Match Ever™, but it’s given us plenty of great moments in an uneven year in WWE. Here’s hoping Edge can continue to have such creative freedom with his character going forward.
