Edge Talks New Role on “The Flash”
WWE.com has released an interview with Edge on his new role on the television series “The Flash.” Edge also talks about the Stardust, Stephen Amell rivalry. You can read the full interview here. Below is his take on Stardust and Stephen Amell:
WWE.COM: I’m not sure if you are following the Stardust vs. Stephen Amell rivalry, but, if by chance the two were to meet and you were at ringside, who would Edge/Atom-Smasher root for?
EDGE: Well, Flash and The Arrow are in the same DC Comics Universe, so I may battle Stephen Amell on the CW and we all know that a Spear is more powerful than an arrow. Then again, I’ve never wrestled Stardust, but I did compete against Cody Rhodes so I think I’d actually have to be ringside to make my pick.
