Ex-WWE Star Says They Never Got The Call For WrestleMania 39
At WrestleMania 39, Edge went back to his roots as he brought out the iconic Brood entrance, but despite speculation, he wasn’t joined by his former partner in the group, Gangrel.
WrestleMania 39 saw Hell In A Cell return to the event for the first time in seven years as Edge took on Finn Balor to finally settle the issues between the WWE Hall of Famer and The Judgment Day. Balor took on his Demon persona for the event while Edge returned to the fiery roots of The Brood. But for some, something – or someone – was missing.
Speaking on Reffin’ It Up with Brian Hebner, Gangrel noted that despite suggestions he could appear at WrestleMania, WWE never reached out despite Edge apparently pitching the idea:
“They may have discussed it, but my phone never rang. I started reading all the stuff, people were calling me, so I wrote Adam [Edge], ‘Do you know this started?’ He made a joke, ‘these writers think they know everything.’ I laughed. I tried to tell a guy to tell them, ‘No, I wasn’t doing it,’ but he still ran the story anyway.
“He goes, ‘To be fair, it was pitched, it just never happened.’ It was pitched, but I never heard about it. I didn’t know anything about it. They never reached out to me. I guess, Edge is always pitching something for me. I think pitched SummerSlam for me, but it got shot down.”
In his current run in WWE, Edge first broke out the iconic entrance at SummerSlam and there were reports that led to an angle featuring Gangrel and his other Brood partner Christian Cage to be nixed in AEW.
