I am incredibly excited to talk to one of the biggest guests yet on the show, Adam "Edge" Copeland. We talk about how Edge got into rock and heavy metal, and how he got into pro wrestling. Edge talks about his early favorites like KISS and Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Metallica, and his favorite bands now like Behemoth. We talk about Edge's friendships with Zakk Wylde and Rob Zombie, and appearing live onstage at a Rob Zombie gig. Edge talks about how he used hard rock influences to build up his character. We talk about Edge's theme by Alter Bridge, and what makes a great entrance theme. He talks about the common struggles that musicians and wrestlers share. Edge also talks about wrestlers he's helping guide nowadays, his match with Randy Orton, his famous angle with Seth Rollins breaking Edge's neck, his battles with Mick Foley and which he hated more: fire or barbed wire. We also discuss his incredible feud with John Cena and get an update on his injury. We end the show asking Edge which rock stars he'd be in a tag team with.
