Adam Copeland, a valued member of the AEW roster since WrestleDream last year, has undoubtedly made a significant impact since his debut. Regrettably, he sustained a serious injury last month. Unsurprisingly, AEW has been called out for allowing Copeland to perform high-risk moves that led to his injury.

Adam Copeland revealed that he suffered fractured tibia following a dangerous spot at AEW Double or Nothing and will be out of action for a long time. As a result, he had to relinquish the TNT Championship.

While speaking on a recent episode of the Vince Russo Brand podcast, Al Snow talked about Adam Copeland’s injury and called out AEW for the same. The former European Champion argued that allowing the WWE Hall of Famer to perform high-risk maneuvers was not a wise investment move, pointing out that AEW will not get a return on the investment they put into The Rated R Superstar because of the injury.

“Why would you want to sign Adam ‘Edge’ Copeland onto AEW and then pay him whatever it is you’re paying him? Because you’re making an investment that you’re going to be able to put him in the ring in front of an audience on a regular basis. A consistent basis to build him into a draw to capitalize on what he has grown in WWE. To elevate your talent and product and draw money.


Now that he has taken this risk by attempting to have a five-star cage match, broke his tibia. He’s going to be out for probably a minimum of six months. He is of course going to be probably still being paid and yet you as the promoter are not going to be able to put him in the ring and achieve the objectives of what you were putting that investment in him in the first place.”

Adam Copeland has already confirmed he has undergone surgery for the injury. Only time will tell whether Adam Copeland will be able to return as soon as possible, as his absence will be felt on AEW television till then.
