Charly Caruso asks Randy Orton how he’s preparing to live up to
expectations. Orton says he’s just wondering if Edge will be the
only guest on the Peep Show. She says Edge will be. Orton says
that’s good. She asks him what that means. Orton says there could be
two guests on the Peep Show.
Christian makes his entrance and looks happy to be there. The Peep
Show is next.
The Peep Show with special guest Edge
Christian introduces Edge to the ring. They embrace. Christian says
he was so happy to see Edge return, but he thinks he’s running on
fumes at this point. Edge thinks about it. Christian doesn’t think
Edge could pull off the greatest wrestling match ever in his prime.
They’re best friends and have to be brutally honest with each other.
Those are some lofty expectations. If Edge thinks he can live up to
that, he’s lying to himself. Edge is starting to buckle and can’t
handle the pressure.
Edge tells him to pump the brakes. Has Christian ever thought what
it’s like to be in his shoes? Has Christian ever thought about what
he’s going through having a straight up wrestling match for the
first time in nine years? Now it has to be the greatest wrestling
match ever? That’s like being at the bottom of Mt. Everest with no
gear and crew and being told to climb. This isn’t the same Edge that
would look Christian in the eye and give him the confidence because
he was nervous before all their tag matches. Pardon him if this Edge
is nervous about facing Randy Orton, who has been here for nine
years firing on all cylinders. Edge doesn’t know how many cylinders
he has. Christian says all he’s hearing is excuses. Did Edge think
he’d come back and just do the greatest hits? Spear, smile, go home?
What happened to Edge? Where’s the belief? Christian knows someone
who used to believe in Edge more than anyone. Edge’s mom. She was
there for all the big matches. If Edge doesn’t think she’ll be
sitting there for this one, she will be. Christian calls him Adam
and says if Edge isn’t showing up at Backlash, he can step through
the ropes and go home right now. Edge looks super emotional as he
looks at Christian.
Christian says that’s what he was looking for. Christian says they
believe in him. They saw something at WrestleMania. When he locked
Orton in that submission, he put him down. Edge has the anti-venom.
Christian says they think Edge is as good now as he’s ever been.
They believe he can have the greatest wrestling match ever.
Randy Orton appears on the screen and tells them to shut their
mouths. If he has to listen to anymore of these words, he’s going to
be sick to his stomach. Edge made one guarantee for this match at
Backlash. Edge said he’d try. That’s pathetic to Orton. The
expectations on this match are astronomical. What will Edge do when
he doesn’t live up to those expectations. Orton will embarrass and
humiliate Edge. He’ll take away all his grit until he’s a broken man
sent back home to Beth and his beautiful daughters Ruby and Lyric.
This Sunday at Backlash, the redemption of Edge is over.
Edge looks absolutely pumped up. Edge simply says, “No it’s not.”
Edge throws down the microphone and walks off. Before he walks off
to the back, he turns back to Christian and nods.
