Edge and Christian Weighed in on Asuka's WWE Debut

While talking on E&C's Pod Of Awesomeness, Edge and Christian discussed the hype surrounding Asuka.
Edge: "I'm sure I'll get lambasted for this, but I don't get the Asuka thing. Like, I really don't. She's fine and she's solid, but I don't know. Even going back to the NXT stuff, I've watched it. I don't know. I just never really bought in. And it's not that I don't want to or anything like that. I don't know. Even the entrance and everything, it's very [Shinsuke] Nakamura-esque and he was doing it first, so I don't know. I've never really understood the hype."
Christian: "I think it happens, not just with her, but with a lot of people when there's certain hype around somebody. And, honestly, I've never seen a full match of her's until last night [TLC]." Christian continued, "so maybe I have, one or two. I think that when there's a lot of hype and that sort of thing, it makes it harder, sometimes, for the talent to kind of live up to the [video] packages and the hype and expecting something completely different than they've seen before and that's really hard to do. I liked her body language. I like the presentation. I like the persona. She seemed really comfortable with what she's doing. But yeah, there were some certain things in [the match versus Emma] that weren't super-crisp or anything like that, but it could be the first time she [has] worked with Emma or whatever. But maybe, it's also because the match was a bit long."
