“I saw what you said last week. I heard, I really heard what you said, and it sat with me. Your boot on the back of my neck, my face smashed.. I know it isn’t 2014 but I remember like it was yesterday.”

“Last week, you threatened all of those same things again. Now, I know with that curb stomp can do to me. I know if you hit that curb stomp, it probably ends my career. It affects my way of life, my ability to be the father I need to be.”

Edge played his own games with Seth Rollins

A while after The Rated-R Superstar finished his segment, The SmackDown Savior made his way to the arena. Right when he reached the ring, the audience started chanting “We Want Edge.” However, Rollins insisted the WWE Universe and Edge hear him out.

According to Rollins, he respects how Edge feels, but everything he said about neck injuries, his ability to be a father and husband, and everything else were excuses as to why Rollins would defeat him.

“There is no shame in your shortcomings, Edge. There’s no shame in being beaten and broken by this business. And there is no shame, Edge I’m not being able to find the darkness that once guided you. But the problem is without that blackness you cannot get on my level.”
