Recently, wrestler Adam Copeland shared some reflections on his previous feud with fellow professional wrestler Matt Hardy, which originated from their off-screen love triangle involving female wrestler Lita during their time in WWE.

This high-profile rivalry came into existence in 2005 when Hardy and Copeland’s on-screen conflicts were surprisingly based on the reality of off-screen drama. Specifically, it capitalized on Copeland’s relationship with Lita who was, at that time, romantically involved with Hardy.

During a guest appearance on the “Insight” podcast, Copeland, also known as the Rated R Superstar, opened up about his perspective on the entire situation. Here are some excerpts from the conversation with him on the podcast:

Speaking about the situation with Hardy when all the truth got revealed: “Well… we’re here, right? So, how can we extract some positives from a crummy scenario? It’s a situation for which I’m responsible — I made the bed, right? Not to mention, the company wants to explore this. Well, let’s transform this into an engaging storyline, a compelling program. Let’s leverage it to make some money because what else can we do at this stage?”

Regarding mending things with Hardy swiftly: “Once we both understood, ‘Oh okay. We’re still the same friends. We’re still sharing the same camaraderie, everything is pretty much the same.’ I believe the audience took significantly more time to accept our peace than we did.”

Reflecting on the notion of tribalism in wrestling: “In my opinion, it’s a bit absurd. I say this from the perspective of my childhood when I used to watch anything I could lay my eyes on. Whether it was Continental, Mid South, NWA, BC Allstar, I simply wanted to watch and see the developments. Speaking of allegiance to initials, I reckon it’s akin to people rooting for their favorite sports teams … but for me, it’s the same with hockey. While I’m a Maple Leafs fan, I love hockey as a game, so I don’t mind watching other teams like the Boston Bruins or the Florida Panthers because I enjoy a good game. That’s my point of view.”
