 In a world filled with dork chops, Edge and Christian still manage to totally rule.

When Edge & Christian first won the World Wrestling Federation Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania XVI, few thought that they would remain atop the tag team division for long. Fifteen months and six title reigns later, the most photogenic tag team in Federation history must also be considered one of the greatest tag teams in Federation history.

 

As full-fledged international Superstars, Edge & Christian are constantly inundated with interview requests. This month, they were kind enough to share their time and some of their innermost thoughts with World Wrestling Federation magazine. Despite their fame, fortune and movie-star looks, the two remain down to earth, thoughtful, and quite insightful. We hope you'll enjoy this inside look at what truly has become the E&C Phenomenon.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
How tough is it to be Edge & Christian?

Edge:
Being the flag bearers for all the tag teams here in the WWF, being seven-time Tag Team Champions, and being the most photogenic tag team ever, it does get pretty tough. There are a lot of tag teams nipping at our heels, but we tend to stay one step ahead of the pack.

Christian:
Other people may perceive that it's difficult to be Edge & Christian, but we've been Edge & Christian our whole lives, so we've been used to the attention. We're used to people trying to touch us, wanting to be like us, and taking our picture. We've become accustomed to it. It comes with the territory. It's a 24 hour-a-day job, but we handle it with the extreme grace and dignity that people have come to expect from us.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
You've been Tag Team Champions seven times. Do you thing your prowess in the ring gets overlooked because you're such mega-celebrities?

Edge:
It does get tough with the throngs of fans who tend to gravitate towards Edge & Christian. Sometimes our skills do get over-shadowed, but being consummate professionals, practitioners and technicians, we also show what we can do in the ring. The Ladder match being case and point number one. Like Christian always says, "If you want to fight, we'll fight you right now."

Christian:
Because we look so good, people don't expect us to be so tough and gritty, as well as being the great technical wrestlers we are. Once they get past our beauty, they see we can go when it's time to go.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
You two have added so many new words to the global lexicon. Where do you come up with your rather startling vocabulary?

Edge:
Well you see, being the coolest cats this side of Timbuktu, we've come up with lingo that other people like to use. Some people look to certain Holly wood stars, some to athletes in other sports, but if you really want to know what's hip and what the ids are really saying, and as Kurt would say, "What's all that?" just look to E&C.

Christian:
That's right. There are leaders in this world, and there are followers. We always lead by example. People hear us talk, and they want to be like us. So, they talk like us. We're trendsetters and that's just the way it is.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
Has the E&C Phenomenon gone global, and is there anything you would like to say to your international fans?

Christian:
I'd like to say something to all my fans in London, and I'd like to say it in English: "What's up?"

Edge:
I know that we have a large fan base in Zimbabwe. To all the Zimbabweanions, I'd like to say that they too reek of awesomeness, just like us.

Christian:
And to all our fans in Deutschland, I'd like to say guttentag-o-licious.

Edge:
And keep wearing those wooden shoes, 'cause they totally rule!

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
What to Edge & Christian like to do away from the ring?

Christian:
I like to relax at home and watch Beverly Hills 90210 and other cool shows like that.

Edge:
We just chill like mega-villains, watch our favorite movies like Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Clueless with a bevy of beauties by our side.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
Speaking of beauties, what do you look for in a woman?

Christian:
She definitely has to be as good-looking as I am.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
Is that possible?

Christian:
I doubt it.

Edge:
She definitely has to hold up her end of the bargain in the looks department. If she doesn't, she is definitely out the door.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
You guys have been associated with Angle, Austin and Triple H. Are winners drawn to you?

Edge:
I think in all facets of life, winners are drawn to winners, and losers are drawn to losers. I mean the Dudley Boyz and hardy Boyz are drawn together, because, let's face it, they're losers. Winners like Angle, Austin, Triple H, Rhyno and us, we're all drawn to each other because we're winners. Wouldn't you want to hang out with the cool people if you were cool?

Christian:
That's right. The cream always seems to rise to the top, and Edge & Christian are definitely on top of their game with the aforementioned, and that's why they gravitate toward us.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
What motivates you after all the success you've had?

Christian:
I know some people are saying, "These guys have done everything." But we're not happy just being quote the best tag team in the history of the World Wrestling Federation unquote. We want to be icons, we want to be a dynasty, and that's what we are striving to be. We're only 27 years old, and you can already put us in the Hall of Fame.

Edge:
I think the Hall of fame has a whole wing ready to be dedicated to the E&C Dynasty.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
Since you guys have done so much so soon...

Edge:
Excuse me, I rule. Thank you.

Christian:
Ditto.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
Since you've don so much so soon and accomplished so many great things, have you given any thought to going solo and competing as individuals?

Christian:
Like as in Han Solo?

Edge:
Chewbacca?

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
No, wrestling as individuals.

Edge:
You know, Han Solo was a stud just like us. But, I don't know about Chewy.

Christian:
We've dominated the tag team scene for I don't know how many years now...

Edge:
Three, four, eight ten...whatever.

Christian:
Anyway, pretty soon we'll have to branch out and collect all the titles.

Edge:
The beautiful thing is that we can do it while still being the Edge & Christian Dynasty, and that's something that very few tag teams can say or do.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
Any thought of branching out into music, movies, television shows?

Christian:
We get plenty of offers, but our grueling schedule tends to make us have to pick and choose.

Edge:
Not to toot my own French horn here, but I have had a role in Highlander: Endgame, and yes, music is a big staple in my life. I can belt out a tune every once in a while, and it can range anywhere from a nice little Frank Sinatra number to a death metal number to an alternative number, or maybe even some opera. Opera could be in Edge & Christian's future.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
Are Edge & Christian very cultured?

Edge:
Broadway, opera, bring it all on.

Christian:
Yeah, I've been approached to do Les Miserables.

Edge:
I was actually approached to take Sabastian Bach's place in Jekyll & Hyde on Broadway.

 

 

World Wrestling Federation Magazine:
Since you guys are role models for so many, we're sure that all your fans are curious as to who our own role models were?

Christian:
Edge was my role model.

Edge:
Christian was mine.

Christian:
Together, we admire Kurt.

Edge:
And Rhyno. Well, maybe Rhyno's not really our role model; he's more lie our lackey.
