Miami Herald Interviews Christian On Haven Appearance

WWE SUPERSTAR CHRISTIAN TO TEAM AGAIN WITH WWE HALL OF FAMER EDGE ON ‘HAVEN’ ON SYFY

Growing up together near Toronto, Adam Copeland and Jay Reso dreamed of WWE superstardom. The dream became reality with the birth of Edge & Christian.

After Edge retired from the ring on April 15, 2011, the ultra-talented WWE standouts have not spent much time together — until recently. From sports entertainment success to another discipline of entertainment, Christian reunited with his lifelong friend for a recurring guest arc on Syfy’s fan-favorite series, “Haven,” which airs 7 p.m. EST Fridays.

Edge, 41, who debuted on “Haven” in 2011, is an integral part of the Season 5 cast for this American/Canadian supernatural drama series, based on the Stephen King novel The Colorado Kid (2005).

“Everybody knows I’ve been best friends with Edge, Adam Copeland, who’s been on ‘Haven’ the past four seasons,” Christian said. “His character has become more of a focal point on [Haven], especially this season, and I think the producers just saw the dynamic that Edge and I had. They knew the back story of us growing up together and obviously coming to WWE together. The chemistry that we had in the ring and the dynamic that we had there they thought could carry over and be kind of a cool thing to see in the ‘Haven’ series as well.

“They approached him [Edge] and asked his thoughts on it. Of course, he loved the idea; so they get in contact with me, and I thought it was a great opportunity, something fun to do and a new challenge. I jumped all over it.”

Christian, 40, will appear in an all-new episode of ‘Haven’ airing Friday, Nov. 28. He will reprise his role for two additional episodes in 2015.






WWE.com: Superstars Pick Survivor Series Dream Teams – 2014 Edition

Roman Reigns

“My first pick would be my man, Dean Ambrose,” Roman Reigns said without hesitation. “We have a huge amount of chemistry and I like his element of surprise. You just don’t know what to expect with him. That would really give our team an advantage in that respect.”

The former Shield powerhouse showed his affinity for maintaining strong allies with his next picks.

“I would go with a tag team situation here, because it’s all about teamwork,” he explained. “And you can’t go wrong with these guys: Edge and Christian. Both of them bring their own strengths to the table. Obviously, Edge also utilizes the Spear, which would be cool with both of us in the ring at the same time.”

For his last pick — The Undertaker — Reigns went with a true legend.

“We need a big man — a really big man,” he said. “A skyscraper, someone with that ‘it’ factor, with that demeanor, and with all his experience, he serves as a huge cornerstone for this group. If there’s any aspect in a situation the other four haven’t been in, I guarantee he would be able to step up and have some knowledge.”






WWE.com: The 100 Best Matches To See Before You Die

#86. Christian vs. Randy Orton – World Heavyweight Championship No Holds Barred Match (Summerslam 2011)

I wouldn’t have necessarily predicted beforehand that Orton and Christian would have been so great together. A lot of people loved Christian and had been waiting for him to have that moment in the main event, and he turned out to physically be the perfect match for Randy Orton. It’s one of those magic things where it’s hard to point out why it worked so well.”The rivalry was thought of so highly in spite of the fact that Orton was a hero. When people talk about Randy Orton, it’s usually not as a hero, but he was perfect for the kind of opportunistic scoundrel villain that Christian was. You really wanted to see Christian get his comeuppance and people were really excited to root for Randy Orton against a guy fans were traditionally used to cheering. Each of their matches had meaning.”What they do in the ring is so good, it doesn’t even matter how their rivalry got started. You can watch it as a standalone amazing match and see it unfold. That’s the tell-tale sign of two guys who know what they’re doing. Christian’s been around a long time and Randy Orton’s a third-generation Superstar who is so natural. They executed it like two veterans do. — PETER ROSENBERG, AS TOLD TO ZACH LINDER










Adam ‘Edge’ Copeland Mentions Christian In Recent Interview With Alternative Nation

In a recent interview with Alternative Nation, WWE Hall of Famer and one of the current stars of SyFy’s Haven, Adam ‘Edge’ Copeland discussed several topics, including his love of alternative rock bands, if he’ll ever return to the WWE, what he thinks about WWE’s Attitude Era as well as Christian’s future and working with him on Haven. You can check out the full interview here, here’s what he had to say about Christian:

You mentioned Christian being on Haven. How was it working with him again, and do you see acting as something he could do, as his career is in an interesting position right now with injury issues and not having wrestled in awhile. But how was it seeing Christian, and what do you think about his future?

Well he’s my best friend, so I know what’s going on with him more than anybody else. But he’s at that kind of point where you sit back and look and go, okay I’m definitely closer to the end of my career than the beginning. After awhile your body just starts telling you, this is a difficult job to do. When you’re in your 20’s and you think you’re indestructible, you can bounce back, but it gets harder when you start climbing into your 40’s.

He came out here, the executive producers of Haven were like, ‘Hey, what’s Christian doing?’ ‘Right now he just had a baby girl, same as us, we’re just kind of talking about that, but he’s just being a Dad.’ They asked if he’d be interested in coming out, I floated it by him, and he said, ‘Yeah, that’d be great. It’d be fun to have the girls see us in a different kind of arena of entertainment than wearing tights and throwing each other around. It would be fun to show them us acting together someday.’ So he got out here, and we hadn’t seen each other in almost a year, so it was nice to be able to sit down and not just talk over the phone or over Facetime, but to actually just get caught up, more than anything else.

The Peep Show with special guest Dean Ambrose
We are back and it is time for the return of the Peep Show and Christian. Christian says that when you least expect it, Captain Charisma shows up looking for one…more…episode of the Peep Show. He says that he sees that he has a lot of Peeps in Albany. He says that he just got back from the set of Haven. He mentions that his episode featuring Edge will air on November 28th right before Smackdown. There is a lot of wild stuff going on. You have the stipulation announced by Vince McMahon in the Team Authority versus Team Cena match at Survivor Series.

Christian takes a quick poll of the crowd for the main event of Survivor Series and the majority feel that Team Cena will win. Christian says that things are going to be getting chaotic over the next few weeks…

Dean Ambrose’s music plays and he appears to have jumped Christian’s cue for him to come to the ring. We have a video package to show why Dean is not in a gregarious mood tonight. Christian introduces the man who doesn’t like introductions, Dean Ambrose.

Christian says the last time he saw Dean, he was running with the Shield. He asks Dean what is it like to be Dean Ambrose now.

Dean says that it is a bowl of cherries. He has no friends and there are enemies around each corner.

Christian mentions Bray Wyatt, the man who cost Dean his match at Hell in a Cell. Why did Bray do it?

Dean asks Christian if he knows. Dean says that you usually go after the person who has something that you want, but Dean says that he has nothing. There is no title for Bray to take from him. What does he want? Dean says that he thinks Bray likes to play mind games. The people who cannot handle the volume being turned up, so Bray preys on weak minded people.
