Edge Calls Rey Mysterio A Living Legend, Credits Him For Daniel Bryan Breaking Through In WWE


Edge recently appeared as a guest on The Kurt Angle Show for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling and WWE.

During his appearance on the official podcast of the fellow WWE Hall of Fame legend, "The Rated-R Superstar" called Rey Mysterio a living legend and gave him credit for other Superstars such as Daniel Bryan breaking through to the top level in the company.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On Rey Mysterio being a legend: "Rey Mysterio, he gets credit, but it’s still not the credit he deserves. I think because he’s been so consistent for so long, that he’s not appreciated to his full extent and I don’t know if he will be fully appreciated until he retires. When there’s no Rey Mysterio on the show, they’ll go ‘But wait? We need Rey.’ I think as a writer, as a company, as a fan, as a colleague, although I think colleagues and peers appreciate him more than anyone else because they truly fully grasp and understand it. That dude, for his style and what he’s done, to still even be in there at all let alone at the level that he’s performing at, he just did a Hell in a Cell with Roman Reigns. The term legend is thrown around a lot, dudes a legend. He’s a living legend and one day people will fully fully latch onto how special Rey Mysterio is."

On how without Mysterio talents like Daniel Bryan wouldn’t have broken through: "Think about all the hurdles and obstacles he’s knocked down and how he changed an industry, because without him, I don’t think Daniel Bryan breaks through. And a lot of talents like that, I think Rey Mysterio is the reason that can happen. He proved it can work and people would buy it and pay to see it."
