The Unusual Challenge Adam Copeland Set Himself In AEW

Adam Copeland AEW

Adam Copeland has just about done it all in his wrestling career but now the AEW star has revealed how he is keeping things fresh for himself in his relatively new surroundings.

Adam Copeland shocked the world when he debuted for AEW back at WrestleDream in October 2023. The star best known as Edge in WWE found himself involved in a heated feud with his old tag team partner Christian Cage that culminated in The Rated-R Superstar winning the TNT Championship in his hometown of Toronto.

Since then Copeland has welcomed challengers in his ‘Cope Open’ but more recently he has found himself embroiled in a feud with the House of Black.

With matches against plenty of young stars, he’s never clashed with before, it seems Copeland is doing all he can to make things interesting for fans and himself.

Adam Copeland Keeping Things Interesting In AEW

Speaking to AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland and Monteasy on Swerve City, Adam Copeland revealed he set himself a challenge in the company to try and use a new move in every match:

What I’ve done with this AEW run, I told myself, ‘I’m going to try a move that I’ve never tried before. One move, every match. That I’ve never done before.’ [On AEW Collision before AEW Dynasty], I did the Davey Boy powerslam. Never done one before. I’ve done the rotation powerslam, but never the Davey.

Last week against Brody King, I’ve never done a blockbuster, ‘I’ll try a blockbuster.’ Just for myself, really. Just to have fun and the challenge of it. I get off on challenges. The challenges are very big for me in life. I work best when I have a challenge that I have to try and conquer.

Adam Copeland will put his TNT Title on the line against one member of the House of Black when Dynamite takes place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on May 1st.
