Adam Copeland, known for his 25-year career in WWE, made a surprising move to AEW during WrestleDream last year, stunning fans. Since joining AEW, Copeland has become a significant presence in the promotion. He recently admitted that the current AEW product feels reminiscent of the late 90s in wrestling.

The Rated R Superstar wasted no time becoming a highlight of AEW television, which is a surprise considering he wasn’t even sure he would ever wrestle again. It is evident that AEW has revealed his love for professional wrestling.

Following a dramatic pursuit that involved chasing off Christian Cage in a stolen car earlier this month, the Rated R Superstar issued a challenge to the TNT Champion for an I Quit Match. This intense showdown is set to take place on the March 20th episode of AEW Dynamite, with the stage being Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

While speaking to Sports Illustrated, Adam Copeland talked about his bout against Christian Cage and admitted that the current AEW feels like the late 90s in pro wrestling as there are less handcuffs.


“We had to tackle this first–it couldn’t be ignored,” said Copeland. “To me, we had to do this story right, the way we always thought it could be.”

“After this, there is a whole roster of people I want to wrestle. To me, it feels like the late 90’s. There are less handcuffs here. We’re able to try more here, and that’s exactly what I want.”

Copeland’s last WWE match occurred in August 2023 in Toronto against Sheamus. It remains to be seen whether Adam Copeland emerges victorious in the I Quit match against Christian Cage, potentially concluding their feud. Undoubtedly, fans are rooting for The Rated R Superstar to prevail.
