Edge & Christian reunion coming to SyFy Friday nights in November!

We got a taste of it with their totally awesome Smackdown 15th anniversary special a couple of weeks ago (and still available at this WWE Network link).  Now get ready for more of the childhood best friends turned pro wrestling legends!

Unfortunately for E & C marks like myself, it won't be in the ring - or even on WWE television.  A surgically repaired neck and tendancy toward concussions means that will never happen, but we will be able to see the pair work their witty banter and charismatic compatibility on the same network that brings us the blue brand week in and week out. confirms that Jay "Christian" Reso will join Adam "Edge" Copeland on Haven in a semi-recurring role.  The former tag team champs will also play best friends on the show, as Christian's McHugh will help Edge's Dwight through some tough life situations, and possibly lend a hand to some physical confrontations, as well.

Here's WWE's official description of their roles and the show, and a picture:

Life imitates art with Christian portraying McHugh, one of Dwight's (Edge) oldest and closest friends. McHugh is smart, with ice water for blood, hammers for fists and a dogged sense of loyalty. McHugh and Dwight served as Army Rangers together, as well as members of The Guard. But McHugh left this life for a simpler one, determined to remain out of the line of fire. Dwight knows he could use the help of his fierce friend, but respects McHugh's desire to live under the radar.

When Dwight finds himself in a romantic conundrum in the episode "Chemistry," McHugh is the first one Dwight turns to. McHugh counsels Dwight through the challenge, while also considering joining forces with his old friend to once again defend the town of Haven, Maine.

Haven, based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King, follows former FBI agent Audrey Parker, who becomes a cop in the small town of Haven, Maine, and soon discovers the town's many secrets, which also hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of her lost past.

I haven't kept up with the show recently, but when I did, Haven was a decent diversion in that particular, "serial b-movie" way that SyFy productions have to them.  Edge represented well, and obviously impressed the producers when his role went from semi-recurring to fully billed cast member.

Can his real life and kayfabe buddy follow his lead?  Are you excited to see him try?
