AEW WrestleDream went down in Seattle on October 1st, and fans were treated to quite a show. That being said, you never know what Tony Khan’s company will bring during a pay-per-view event, and the event ended with Adam Copeland making his big debut with the company.

The main event of WrestleDream saw Darby Allin defend the AEW TNT Title against Christian Cage. The two wrestled for a bit, and then Cage threw Allin onto the steel ring steps in a terribly dangerous spot. That caused a 10 count, and Cage was up by one fall. Then Christian used that opportunity to tear the mat off the ring before landing a frog splash onto the stretcher as AEW’s medical team was leading Allin off.

Christian Cage then delivered a Killswitch on Darby Allin directly onto the exposed wood under the ring mat. That was a nearfall, and the match continued. The referee eventually took a bump, and that opened the door for Christian Cage to do whatever he wanted.


Nick Wayne ran down and took the TNT Title from Christian Cage before he could hit Darby Allin with it. Then Nick Wayne laid Allin out with the title instead. This gave Christian Cage a chance to pin Allin for the win to retain the TNT Title.

After the match was over, the assault on Darby Allin continued. Sting came down, and he tried to fight Christian Cage and Nick Wayne off. Luchasaurus joined action and he helped shut Sting down. Then Adam Copeland made his big entrance for AEW just as Sting was about to take a Conchairto.

Adam Copeland got a nice little video entrance, one where he was driving a car to the venue. Then his music hit, with “You Think You Know Him” before his usual Metalingus song. Christian Cage looked stunned as the former Edge made his way to the ring.

Edge took the chair, and then he turned on the heels. This was a good start for Adam Copeland in AEW, as they called him the Rated R Superstar in the process.

Ringside News also previously exclusively reported that there is an internal belief within WWE that Edge is going to AEW. A short time later, Sean Sapp reported that there is also belief within AEW that Tony Khan will ink Adam Copeland to a contract.

Adam Copeland’s name was trending on social media, and not “Edge.” Fans are smart enough to realize that WWE owns the “Edge” name. That being said, this will not be his name in AEW.

It was previously reported that Adam Copeland would be able to use the Rated R Superstar name in AEW. After all, both of those trademarks have been abandoned or are otherwise dead. Only time will tell what is next for Copeland in AEW.
