Adam Copeland is gearing up for a monumental match against Christian Cage on the December 6 edition of AEW Dynamite. This clash between the two legendary figures, formerly known as Edge and Christian in WWE, is a dream come true for Copeland at this stage of his career.
The highly anticipated bout, taking place inside the Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, is for the AEW TNT Title. Given their storied history and impressive wrestling resumes, this encounter could easily be the centerpiece of a pay-per-view event, possibly even headlining one.
In a conversation with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Copeland explained his decision to have this match on the December 6 episode of Dynamite rather than on a pay-per-view. For Copeland and Christian Cage, both native Canadians, the location carries immense significance. Many of their relatives and loved ones will be in attendance, witnesses to a journey that began long ago.
Copeland remarked, “I’ve heard, ‘Why isn’t this at the pay-per-view?’ To me, where is more important than when. We get to do it in Montreal. There’s no other choice for us but to have it here. My family is coming for this one, cousins and relatives who’ve known Jay [Christian Cage] for years.”
He continued, “There’s something special about doing it in Canada. I am really, really amped up to do this one. I truly think there’s not another story like ours, with this real story. Two friends from Orangeville, Ontario, who made it where we made it because of each other. I’m hoping this is a rabid crowd. This is what I dreamed of–working that guy in Montreal for a championship.”
As Copeland embraces this pivotal moment in his wrestling career, he acknowledges that he wants to continue wrestling for as long as possible while keeping his ultimate goals in mind. Wrestling fans can look forward to live coverage of AEW Dynamite on December 6, provided by Ringside News.
