Go To

The Edge and Christian Show That Totally Reeks of Awesomeness (or simply The Edge And Christian Show) is a Sketch Comedy show that aired on the WWE Network. It featured Adam "Edge" Copeland and Jay "Christian" Reso, and their antics and interactions with other WWE superstars and backstage personnel. The first season consisted of 12 episodes, with a second season consisting of 10 episodes airing two years later.

Recurring Segments Include

  • The Chumpstain Challenge: Edge and Christian compete against one another in a series of challenges, typically revolving around identifying wrestling-related things correctly (For example, identifying a superstar's action figure by its silhouette, or recognizing two superstars when their faces are mashed together into one.)
  • Dirty Deeds: Edge and Christian put other WWE Superstars into Perp Sweating situations, but most often, the questions asked by Edge and Christian are too off the wall and nonsensical for the interrogated to understand.
  • EC Dubs: Edge and Christian take old WWE Footage and do a Gag Dub.
  • Hit My Music: A new segment added in Season 2. Edge and Christian listen to a superstar's theme music, and pantomime acting like the superstar in question.

These Tropes Reek of Awesomeness

  • Adam Westing: Pretty much every wrestler who appears on the show, including Edge and Christian themselves at times.
  • Biting-the-Hand Humour: A fair bit of the show's humour is this, openly mocking (affectionately or otherwise) WWE itself.
  • Butt-Monkey: Tommy Dreamer tends to be this whenever he's on the show.
  • The Eponymous Show: The show's named after Edge and Christian.
  • Gag Dub
    • Sho Funaki would introduce Edge and Christian at the start of the show, with his voice dubbed over by Howard Finkel.
    • Making these was the point of the "EC Dubs" segments, which would have Edge and Christian dubbing over WWE Footage with their own voices.
  • Genius Bonus: Good luck getting most of the jokes and references if you're not at least fairly knowledgeable about the history of wrestling, at least as far back as the 80s. Of course, given that the show is aimed exclusively at wrestling fans, and airs on a streaming service that only wrestling fans would get, this makes sense.
  • Perp Sweating: Used (or attempted, at least) in the "Dirty Deeds" segments, although ultimately, the questions asked by Edge and Christian seem to be so off the wall and nonsensical that the interrogated are left confused.
