'MADtv' gets Rated-R
WWE fans, get ready to see a whole new side of Edge on Saturday night. The Rated-R Superstar guest stars on the Fox comedy show, MADtv, which airs at 11/10 CT.
"On MADtv, I get to be one of the biggest buffoons alive," Edge laughed. "I had a great time. It was a great experience and I think the WWE fans will see me completely different than the Edge they see on Raw."
Edge told WWE.com that he'll be in the show's opening skit and he'll play a key role in the season finale of the show's recurring Korean soap opera.
"In the opening of the show, one of the girls says I'm her wrestling crush and introduces me. We have some fun from there with me beating up an audience member with her. You'll see," he said.
"Then, we do a really overdone, mockery of Korean soap operas. I play a Canadian assassin, Cornell Overstreet. He's sent to kill the hero in the Korean soap opera… and I'll leave it at that," he said slyly.
Edge said he's a big fan of MADtv, although he's often traveling with WWE on Saturday nights when it airs. While other WWE Superstars, such as Triple H and John Cena, have guest started on MADtv, this was Edge's first time on the show.
"They were very open to just letting me ad lib. We weren't set strictly to a script. We had free reign to do just whatever came naturally, and act like idiots, which made it a lot more fun. I think it makes for a funnier show, too," he said.
"I got to work with Bobby Lee, who is in the Korean soap opera. He always seems to work with the WWE Superstars whenever we're on the show. He's hilarious. He's a complete buffoon," Edge said.
The Rated-R Superstar is confident that his appearance on MADtv will be the best ever given by a WWE Superstar. Just how well does he think he'll stack up?
"I don't think there's any stacking to be done. Or if there's a stack, I'm definitely standing on top, and they're all looking up at me saying, ‘My God, you're funny,' or ‘My God, your ability is just astounding.' " he said.
