Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso recently interviewed WWE Hall of Famer Edge, who discussed who he would like to work with next in WWE. Edge named Sami Zayn as someone he’d like to wrestle. Below are some highlights.

Edge on wanting to work with Sami Zayn: “I would love to share the ring with Sami Zayn. I would love to do it in Toronto. We’d keep it real simple. He can come out in his Habs jersey, I’ll come out in my Leafs jersey, and we’ll go from there.”

Edge on Zayn’s promo work: “There’s a key to Sami’s success. There is an element of truth to all his promos. As a heel, you have to have that nugget of truth. If you have it, you can push everything else forward. So his promos feel much more real. He’s doing incredible work.”

On how Zayn’s developed his character over the years: “The crowd just knows to boo this guy. That’s to his credit. His promos, his character work—Sami is incredible. He’s gone from El Generico, then this plucky babyface with checkered tights and Mighty Mighty Bosstones–type music. Now he looks like some kind of dictator. I really dig it. Thinking about it, I can’t wait for it to happen.”
