Adam Copeland’s time at last night’s AEW Full Gear 2023 pay-per-view was a true bucket list moment for the WWE Hall of Famer.
At the event, Copeland teamed with Darby Allin & Sting to defeat Christian Cage, Luchasaurus, and Nick Wayne in Copeland’s first AEW pay-per-view match.
Taking to Instagram, Copeland reflected on competing at Full Gear 2023 and what it meant to have his first match inside California’s Kia Forum. He said,
“I’m 50 years old. In the second and not really supposed to be happening, final act of my wrestling career. Last night I felt like the 17-year-old kid stepping into that concrete like boxing ring at Sullys Gym back in 91. To feel so excited and have so much fun at this stage of my career is such a gift. To perform in The Great Western Forum for the first time, see names like Jimi Hendrix and The Doors painted on the entrance wall, man. To team with @darbyallin who is one insanely(key word insane) talented dude, who by the way hopped on a redeye after this match to go train in Nepal to climb Mount Everest, is invigorating. To team with one of my idols @stinger in his last match in California. To share the same space and be a peer of his, well 12 yr old Adam wouldn’t be able to fathom that. Hell 50 yr old Adam doesn’t. LA, you brought it. That was a bucket lister. Thank you.”
Copeland joined AEW in October of this year at the annual WrestleDream pay-per-view event. He made his in-ring debut during the October 10, edition of WWE Dynamite.
