  1. Love Paley Fest… was hoping for Outcast since they missed Comic Con

  2. Awesome to see Adam Copeland back on TV, and in Vikings, should be good, he’s a great actor(if Jack Reacher ever makes it to TV, he needs to play Reacher, he’s perfect for the role).

    yes , big fan of edge he should thrive here.
