Edwards emphasized the importance of appreciating this era on its own. “‘It’s just a new time and I feel like there’s a new level of respect for pro wrestling,'” said Edwards via Stone. “‘It’s more about trying to create something new and fresh as opposed to trying to be what they were back in that era.'”
