Update On AEW Plans For Adam Copeland Following Debut

Last night’s AEW WrestleDream pay-per-view was capped off by the dramatic debut of Adam Copeland, aka WWE Hall of Fame inductee Edge. In a surprising twist, Copeland chose not to align himself with long-time friend and multi-time tag team championship partner Christian Cage. In the closing moments of the show, Copeland turned on Cage, laying out his new apprentice, Nick Wayne, and on-screen muscle, Luchasaurus.

Following last night’s event, AEW President Tony Khan took part in a media scrum and gave some insight into what fans can expect next from his latest big-name signing.

“I’m so glad you’re happy to be here, and you’re jumping right into the fire,” he said to Copeland, who was seated next to him on stage. “Not only are you going to be making your first-ever appearance on Dynamite this Wednesday, but then the following week. First of all, you’re also coming to Collision, I believe, in Utah on the 7th. So, he’s working both shows this week. We’re gonna see Adam Copeland, The Rated R Superstar, Wednesday night, Dynamite in Stockton for the first time ever, and we’ll see him for the first time ever on Collision this Saturday.

“And then, the following week, Dynamite is actually going to be on Tuesday, October 10 for Title Tuesday. It’s my birthday. It’s going to be a great event. We’re gonna have a great time. I’m very excited about it, and I got the greatest birthday present in the world because the newest member of the AEW roster, the Rated R Superstar, Mr. Adam Copeland, has requested a match on October 10 in Kansas City, and we got a little preview of that action tonight on WrestleDream.

“Based on your request, it’s going to be Adam Copeland, The Rated R Superstar, versus Luchasaurus on Tuesday, October 10, in Kansas City. Luchasaurus is a multiple-time champion and one of the toughest wrestlers in AEW.”
