Hell was unleashed by Adam Copeland on his old friend Christian Cage at AEW Worlds End and it resulted in two title changes.
Adam Copeland shocked the world when he made his AEW debut at WrestleDream stopping Christian Cage, Luchasaurus, and Nick Wayne from decimating Sting.
Over the next few weeks, Copeland explained that he wanted to reunite with Cage in the sunset of their careers but Cage blew him off with a simple expletive-laden message. A huge trios match took place pitting Wayne, Luchasaurus, and Cage against Copeland, Sting, and Darby Allin which Copeland’s side won after Cage ran away rather than have to face his old tag team partner.
As a result of losing the pinfall, Christian Cage rechristened Luchasaurus as Killswitch as tension grew between the TNT Champion and his right hand of destruction.
Eventually, Adam Copeland got his first crack at Christian Cage in AEW on the 6th of December edition of Dynamite. However, Shayna Wayne – who had been on the receiving end of some disgusting remarks from Cage – shockingly cost Copeland the match. That came after an irate Copeland delivered a con-chair-to to Nick Wayne right in front of his mother.
Adam Copeland Wins First AEW Gold At Worlds End
At Worlds End, Copeland got another shot at Cage and the TNT Title in a No Disqualification match. As expected Cage’s group interfered plenty in the match and the high spot came when Copeland powerbombed Nick Wayne through a table that was on fire.
That led to him nailing Christian Cage with Cage’s own finisher and pinning him to become TNT Champion, however things were far from done.
Killswitch won a battle royal on the Zero Hour pre-show guaranteeing him a shot anywhere, anytime for the TNT Title. Sensing his opportunity, he attacked Copeland and was about to hand over his title shot contract when Cage intervened. Christian Cage insisted he be given the contract and Killswitch reluctantly agreed, allowing Cage to get the title shot and win back his TNT Title almost instantly.
