2012 WWE Hall of Famer Edge Discusses His Acting Career, Sheamus Discusses His Nickname, His Babyface Run vs. Heel Run in WWE

2012 WWE Hall of Famer Edge was interviewed by 99.9 KISS FM. Edge spoke about his acting career:
His acting career:
“It’s one of those deals where what I’ve done has kind of fallen in my lap. And I mean, thankfully, and it’s been fun. But, I don’t call myself an actor by any stretch of the imagination. I just figured I’d do some of these things.
I did this show called Haven last summer that’s on Syfy. We’re going to shoot that again up in Nova Scotia. So, I won’t be in Asheville much this summer but it’s a fun experience. It’s not quite as fun as WWE but if I can’t do that, I might as well do something else that’s fun.”
- WWE Superstar Sheamus was recently interviewed by Hot97′s Peter Rosenberg. Here are a few highlights:
His nickname The Great White:
“It’s something that came up, kind of, accidentally. When I was in a feud with Mark Henry at SummerSlam last year, we were literally going back and forth quite a lot. There really hadn’t been no physical altercation. He’d been throwing his weight around and I stepped up to the plate. I think, one time, I called him a giant whale and told him to roll it off the water for this great white. That’s what I call myself, like, a great white shark. It’s stuck pretty well. You look around the arenas now and (there’s) big shark signs and fins with my head on it… It’s cool stuff.
Our WWE Universe fans are really creative with some of the signs they bring, as well. That’s really a huge part of our show, as well. They come to have fun and to be entertained and that’s exactly what we do.”
His run as babyface vs. run as a heel:
“I think it’s like anything else. When you start out somewhere, you’ve got to get your feet wet. You got to find your place. You know? In the beginning, I went after (John) Cena and did the thing with Cena. Then I went after Triple H and Randy Orton. I was beating up a lot of fan favorites at the time. But I was just there to make a name for myself. I didn’t want to be one of these superstars that just come and then just disappear.
Luckily enough, I’m still here. The crowds feelings towards me changed and it’s unbelievable to walk out now and (see) Sheamus signs, rather than jars of mayonnaise or Beaker comparisons. Which is funny, too. … I just got out there and have fun and once the crowd’s reacting to me, that’s all I care about and they’re reacting to me in a positive way. I feed off that, too. It’s great, man. Peter, I’m having the time of my life.”
