- Season 1 Episode 1
- WWE Network
Edge and Christian are without a doubt one of the biggest tag teams and two of the biggest personalities WWE has had in their history as company so when word that they’d be getting their own show on the network excitement ensued at the thought of these two goofs continuing the humor that they helped make them so popular as wrestlers. Sadly however we get a not so funny clip / skit comedy show that could be so much more.
From the opening sketch involving the duo sneaking into Vince’s office to use the bathroom only to find a remote that controls everything hints that this show will quickly go downhill. Onward from there they poked fun at videos of superstars first times on air which had the sense of humor we’ve come to know from them both. Following that was a mock interview with John Cena where their intern acted nervous and mumbled with Cena. This felt forced and not too funny.
Following that was the duo dubbing their voices over an old WCW promo film they had as well as part of the “Table For 3” program the network also has. Not funny either as a lot of the jokes felt forced. To close the show out they brought former WCW / WWF star Shockmaster back to recreate his famous wall breakthrough incident. This was similar to the Tosh.O redemption scenes. Again, not funny and most of it felt forced even with bringing Shockmaster back.
Overall The Edge and Christian Show That Totally Reeks of Awesomeness is anything but Awesome. Coming from two normally great funny guys together this show had me happy to see them back together but sadly wasn’t laughing from it.
