On recent episode of E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, WWE Hall Of Famer Edge talked about his epic Hell In A Cell match against The Undertaker at SummerSlam (2008), unwritten rules of using other pro wrestlers’ moves and other topics.

On Hell In A Cell match against The Undertaker at SummerSlam:

“For me, I would say that Hell In A Cell… I remember going into that, and a little story about that Hell In A Cell, we got from Vince the edict that day that there would be no color in that match and I had put together this whole thing in my head that involved color and also involved me taking a chokeslam through the panel, through two tables, this whole thing. I know I have this written down somewhere. And it wasn’t going to work and color wasn’t going to work. And I’m mad. And I remember saying to Vince that day, ‘this is the most disappointed I’ve ever been in a decision that I’ve had to try and make do with, I guess, in this company’ because I really was. I thought, ‘this is the culmination of a year-and-a-half angle. There has to be that. There has to be color.'”

According to Edge, McMahon banned the blades because he wanted the respected locker room leaders to set the standard of what a less gruesome and less gruelling HIAC match could be. Moreover, Edge acknowledged that ‘The Walt Disney Of WWE’ was right.

On Which WWE Star Used His Moves Without Asking:

“I did that one submission, I think I called it The Edgecator, or The Edgecation, or something, which was kind of like, I looked at it like a reverse Sharpshooter/ankle lock where I could be looking at the back of the head. I think Sheamus has used it since. He didn’t call and ask me. He didn’t text me. I don’t care. Again, I think that’s kind of a tip of the hat. I think Sandow used every one of my moves! And then, when he saw me, he was like, ‘uh, oh yeah, by the way, is that cool?’ And I was like, ‘well, I mean, you’ve already done it, so it’s a little late, but yes, it’s cool.’ And I like him, so I was just busting his chops. But yeah, I always look at that stuff as a tip of the old hatski.”
